Real Analog: Circuits 1 Course 

Thank you for your interest in Real Analog! Real Analog: Circuits 1 is designed to be comprehensive coursework for introductory circuits courses. Whether you're looking for a print textbook to accompany your circuits class, lecture notes and videos to sample or a complete curriculum to follow along with entirely, Real Analog: Circuits 1 provides the content you need.

We encourage you to adopt and adapt the Real Analog: Circuits 1 course materials as you like!


Real Analog: Circuits 1 seamlessly blends hand-on design projects with theoretical concepts and circuit analysis techniques. Developed for university circuits classes by practicing engineers and experienced educators, Real Analog: Circuits 1 is centered on the 12-chapter Real Analog textbook and features:

  • Exercises designed to reinforce textbook and lecture topics

  • Homework assignments for every chapter

  • Multiple design projects that reinforce and extend theoretical concepts

  • Worksheets and videos to help students complete design projects outside of the lab

Design projects throughout the course use Digilent's Analog Discovery 2 usb oscilloscope and Analog Parts Kit. The Analog Discovery includes a dual-channel oscilloscope, waveform generator, power supplies, digital I/O channels and more. The Analog Parts Kit includes a breadboard, jumper wires, more than 20 integrated circuits from Analog Devices, and a wide variety of sensors, resistors, capacitors, discrete semiconductors, and other components. Together the Analog Discovery 2 and Analog Parts Kit include everything needed to build and test a wide variety of analog circuits.

While the Real Analog coursework is designed to be useful in a standalone capacity, combining with the Analog Discovery 2, and the Analog Parts Kit forms the core of a world-class engineering educational program centered on a student first approach. Students with their own design kits learn more, learn faster, retain information longer, and have a more enjoyable experience. Now every student can own their education for less than the cost of a traditional textbook!
