Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module is designed to provide students with the ability to analyse and design analogue electronics.

Principal learning outcomes

At the end of the module the student should be able to 1. recognise and/or apply different circuit topologies to implement a variety of analogue functions 2. understand practical issues associated with the selection of components 3. use models of components to analyse the nominal/or idealised behaviour of circuits 4. determine worse-case behaviour by use of software simulation tools and/or mathematical analysis 5. design analogue electronics 6. optimise circuit performance against a variety of criteria

Timetabled teaching activities

Lectures (20 x 1hr) spread evenly over one 10-week term Seminars (5 x 1hr) Laboratories (3 x 2hrs) Revision classes (2 x 1hr)
