Course Brief

The main aim of this course is to extend the student's understanding of analogue electronics in terms of the analysis, simulation and practical test of amplifiers, current mirror, negative and positive feedback, modeling and macro-modeling, linear integrated circuits and oscillators. Furthermore the course aims to ensure that students are able to use PSPICE to carry out simulation of simple and complex circuits on the basis of various level of circuit and device models; to acquaint students with the theory and application of differential amplifier throughout theoretical analysis and practical measurement; to study the design and analysis of amplifiers on the basis of detailed DC and AC performances. Further understanding should be obtained by design and building practical amplifiers and compare them with simulation results; to have a broad understanding of the properties, practical applications and limitations of Op-Amps; to learn how to carry out a high-level simulation by using micro-model; to understand the principles and applications of RC and LC oscillators from theoretical analysis and lab work.

  • BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology  The BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Technology) programme prepares students for careers as engineers in the dynamic environment that is modern engineering. The engineer plays a significant role in the engineering industry, from development and testing through to manufacturing. The programme is designed to provide students with a broad range of skills for using equipment and techniques, and to acquaint them with how practical and analytical techniques can be applied to real life situations.
