Analog electronics

  • Course level: All Levels


Analog electronics are electric systems with a continuously variable signal, in contrast to digital electronics where signals usually take only two levels. The term “analog” describes the proportional relationship between a signal and a voltage or current that represents the signal.

This is a basic analog electronics course. The most important objective for electronic circuits is to build an amplifier. This course will develop the principles behind the design of an amplifier. You should be able to design an operational amplifier independently well before the end of the course. The course will use MOS devices exclusively. Other analog circuit building blocks such as voltage regulators and power amplifiers will also be discussed


What Will I Learn?

  • -Describe fundamental electrical characteristics, basic operating concepts of semiconductors: diode, BJT and FET and fabrication of discrete components.
  • -Design problems related to several diode application circuits, BJT and FET.
  • -Analyse basic knowledge of amplifier in simple electronic circuits.
  • - And much more
