Introduction to BASIC language and how to use it to analyze electronic circuits. Programs will be developed on IBM-compatible computers that parallel theory presented in Elec 60 & 61. Course begins with covering statements, commands, and functions of BASIC and progresses to applications used in the electronic industry. No previous programming experience is required.

ELEC 60, ELEC 60L and ELEC 90A or equivalents with a grade of "C" or better; ELEC 61 completed or in progress.
