Class Information, Solutions page, etc.

  • The PHYS 309 class information sheet that I handed out the first day of class.
  • There is no textbook for this class. I will give you the lab handouts every week.
  • 5Spice Analysis is a great piece of software for drawing really nice circuit images.
  • Forrest Mims is the person from whom everyone really learned their electronics. His book "Getting Started in Electronics" is the most useful electronics book ever written.
