Analogue Systems Design

Module Aims

  • The module aims to provide students with the ability to analyse and design analogue electronics.
  • It will encompass typical functions of analogue circuits: voltage and current references, operational amplifiers (internal topology and their utilisation in different closed-loop circuits), filters, signal conditioning, comparators, oscillators and signal generators.
  • Students will be encouraged to explore and compare the performance of different circuits with a same functionality.

At the end of the module students will be able to:

  • Understand the main elements of a simple communication system.
  • Explain the several multiplexing techniques utilized in communication systems.
  • Understand and analyse the satellite, optical, mobile and fixed communications systems.
  • Appreciate the effects of noise on communication systems.
  • Identify the need for modulation, source coding and error coding.
  • Understand different kinds of communication topologies and protocols.
  • Apply the theoretical knowledge in order to evaluate the performance of communication systems.
