Learning outcomes:
Having acquired an understanding of some basic and advanced principles of circuit design, students will be in a position to analyse and devise a wide variety of analogue and digital circuits. They will build on the computational and graphical techniques for dimensioning and analysing circuits acquired in ElectronicsI and will apply these methods (where necessary, in modified form) to circuits involving field-effect transistors and operational amplifiers.
The lab exercises provide students with an opportunity to use the typical measuring equipment and instrumentation found in an electronics lab and to collect and analyse experimental data.
