Deals with transistor amplifiers, frequency response, integrated electronics, differential amplifiers, operational amplifiers, feedback amplifiers, and non-linear analogue circuits. The above areas along with A/D and D/A converters are developed with view to interfacing sensors to computer equipment. Switching issues in digital electronic systems are also considered.
Availability2017 Course Timetables
- Semester 1 - 2017
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Gain a strong foundation in analogue electronics, in particular, as used in interfacing various sensing instruments to computer based monitoring and control systems.
2. Develop an understanding of practical issues in implementing digital electronic circuits.
- Transistor amplifiers: small signal analysis, frequency response and distortion.
- Integrated electronics: multistage, cascode, differential and operational amplifiers
- Power amplifiers: Class A, B and AB, efficiency, distortion and thermal stability
- Feedback amplifiers: topologies and stability
- Analog-Digital conversion: prefilters, sample and hold
- Digital Logic families (TTL, CMOS, ECL)characterisation
- Practical issues associated with implementing high speed digital circuits
