Entry requirements

The course E0007E Electronics or equivalent. This means that the students should be able to design simple electronic circuits based on op-amps, transistors, diodes and passive components. The student should be familiar with the simulation program OrCAD. The student should also be able to verify and document the properties of the designed circuits and be able to plan and do laboratory work in electronics. Alternative: Alternative to completed courses can be corresponding knowledge acquired through work within the electronics sector.

Course Aim
The student should be able to describe the function of common semiconductor components, both in discrete and integrated form, and be able to design, build, verify and document discrete circuits useful in the fields of measurement technology and communications.

- Single-stage integrated-circuit amplifiers. - Differential and multistage amplifiers. - Feedback. - Architecture of op-amps. - Filters and tuned amplifiers. - Oscillators and some non-linear circuits.  OrCAD is used for documentation and simulation of the designed circuits in preparation for the lab exercises.

Lectures, homework assignents, and compulsory lab assignments. Important concepts are treated during the lectures. The ability to describe the function of semiconductor components is trained in the homework assignments and the ability to design, build, verify and document discrete circuits is mainly trained in the laboratory assignments.

Approved laboratory assignments and written exam with differentiated grades.

The course is at advanced level and prepares the student for the course E7009E Electronic design which is about designing, together with a fellow student, a complete apparatus such as an audio amplifier.
