and device characteristics of diodes, Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT), and Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFET) that underpin the analysis, design and implementation of analogue circuits; (ii) multi-stage linear amplifiers, operational amplifiers, effects of feedback on the performance and stability of amplifiers. The second half of the course deals with nonlinear circuits such as Schmitt triggers, waveform generators, comparators, A/D, and D/A converters. Therefore, the aims of the course are To further develop skill and knowledge in analysis and design of analogue circuits such as amplifiers, operational amplifiers, comparators and wave form generators. To introduce the basic principle operations, device and circuit characteristics of diodes and BJT and MOSFET transistors To develop a more thorough understanding of why analogue circuits behave in a certain way and how performances can be improved when feedback is applied. To develop intuitive feel for circuit analysis and design To introduce various A/D and D/A conversion techniques and their limitations Indicative Lecture Schedule Period Summary of Lecture Program Week 2 Introduction and revision Week 3 Operational Amplifiers Week 4 Semiconductor Devices for Electronics Week 5 Transistor Amplifiers (BJT): DC and small signal Assignment I released Week 6 Transistor Amplifiers (MOSFET): DC and small signal Week 7 Frequency Response of Amplifiers Week 8 Feedback in Amplifiers (Part I) Assignment I due Week 9 Feedback in Amplifiers (Part II) Assignment II released
