Synopsis

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of linear electronic circuit analysis and design. At the completion of the unit students will develop skills in using state of the art prototyping and measurement tools for linear electronic circuit analysis and design. The topics covered in this course include, sinusoidal steady-state analysis using phasors and complex impedances, feedback concepts, solid-state electronics, solid-state diodes and diode circuits, field-effect transistors, bipolar junction transistors and single-transistor amplifiers.

Outcomes

An understanding of semiconductor devices and their uses as near linear amplifiers. More generally, an understanding of linear systems, and of how non-linear systems can be approximated by linear systems, and the advantages of doing so.

Assessment

Laboratory and assignment work: 30%
Examination (3 hours): 70%
Students are required to achieve at least 45% in the total continuous assessment component (assignments, tests, mid-semester exams, laboratory reports) and at least 45% in the final examination component and an overall mark of 50% to achieve a pass grade in the unit. Students failing to achieve this requirement will be given a maximum of 45% in the unit.
