Included are topics which deal with the workings and issues dealing with circuitry, such as circuit noise, silicon on insulator technology and circuit synthesis


  • Analog circuits - electric communication links using an continuous signal which represents some other quantity
  • Bipolar transistor circuits - a three-terminal electric device (using both electrons and holes), often used in amplification or switching
  • Charge pumps - a DC to DC converter that uses capacitors as energy storage devices which create either a higher or lower voltage power source
  • Circuit analysis - the analysis of the voltages across, and the currents through, every component of a circuit network
  • Circuit faults - a malfunction or problem in a circuit which inhibits the transmission of signals
  • Circuit simulation - the use of mathematical models to replicate the behavior of an actual electronic device or circuit
  • Circuit synthesis - a process whereby an abstract form of desired circuit behavior is turned into design implemented logic gates
  • Digital circuits - circuits that represent signals using discrete bands in an analog levels, instead of continuous range
  • Digital signal processors - or DSP, a specialized microprocessor created to optimize the speed of digital signal processing
  • Isolators - a device which prevents the transfer of electrical energy between circuits, often due to concerns about power surges
  • Linear circuits - an electronic circuit where an input frequency matches the output frequency
  • Magnetic circuits - a circuit made up of one or more closed loop paths containing a magnetic flux
  • Microprocessors - an integrated circuit which incorporates all the functions of a computer's central processing unit
  • MOSFET circuits - a metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor circuit, a circuit which uses such a transistor for amplifying or switching electronic signals
  • Nonlinear circuits - a circuit in which a certain frequency input is not necessarily matched by the same frequency output
  • Passive circuits - circuits that consume but do not produce or increase energy
  • Phase shifters - a device that shifts or changes the phase of a radio frequency signal
  • Power dissipation - the process whereby power is converted into heat or other radiation and radiated away from a electrical system
  • Programmable circuits - circuits whose function is initially undefined and can be reconfigured
  • Pulse circuits - circuits that are used for high-powered signals with rapid pulses of energy
  • Rail to rail operation - the ability of an operational amplifier to switch power sources with minimal changes
  • Rectifiers - devices that convert alternating current,which flows in both directions, to Direct Current, which flows in one direction
  • Sequential circuits - a circuit in which the output does not only depend on present input but on the history of the input
  • Silicon on insulator technology - or SOI technology, the use of a layered silicon-insulator-silicon substrate in place of conventional silicon substrates in semiconductor manufacturing
  • Solid-state circuits - circuits built entirely from solid materials, in which the electrons are confined entirely within the solid material
  • Summing circuits - a circuit which adds several inputs together
  • Switching circuits - circuits that establish a dedicated communications channel between two nodes
  • Thyristor circuits - circuits with four layers of alternating P and N type material, which function as bistable switches
  • Track circuits - an electrical device used to detect the presence or absence of a train on the train tracks
