ObjectivesFor students to gain a strong foundation in analogue electronics, in particular, as used in interfacing various sensing instruments to computer based monitoring and control systems. Also to develop an understanding of practical issues in implementing digital electronic circuits.
Content* 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
