The aim of this course is to develop student's ability to design analogue and mixed-mode electronic systems.
Intended Learning Outcomes of Course
By the end of this course students will be able to:
■ define the common error sources in analogue systems;
■ construct equivalent models of circuits to enable parametric comparison of designs;
■ identify the dominant error sources in specific circuits and quantify their magnitude;
■ optimise the design of a circuit susceptible to a number of error sources;
■ use a rational framework for specification led design;
■ evaluate competing designs against multiple design criteria.
Minimum Requirement for Award of Credits
Students must attend the degree examination and submit at least 75% by weight of the other components of the course's summative assessment.
Students must attend the timetabled laboratory classes.
