Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The student understands fundamental analysis methods related to circuit theory and is familiar with the basic components used in electrical circuits. The student can use and apply this knowledge to simple analog and digital circuits and can do simple simulations and measurements of these circuits. In addition, the student knows how the essentials of the circuit analysis and design are linked to large and complex electronic circuits and has the needed knowledge to continue studies in microelectronic circuit design or radio engineering majors.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Fundamental analysis methods related to circuit theory and basic components used in electrical circuits.

- Small signal model

- S-parameters

- Feedback analysis

- Basic concepts of digital circuits

- Basic simulation and measurements (in two labs)
