For the electronics part, after this module the student should be able to:
  • Know how to model a diode and analyze circuits using the large signal behavior of diodes, rectifiers, clamping circuits and voltage multipliers.
  • Know how to bias a BJT and a MOSFET and understand the limitations of the different bias circuits with respect to variations in temperature and component properties.
  • Know the small signal equivalent circuit of a diode, BJT and MOSFET.
  • Be able to transform a transistor circuit to its small signal equivalent form, analyze its behavior and make a bode plot of small signal properties like gain and in- and output impedances.
  • Know the basic one transistor stages and their gain and input- and output impedances, and use this knowledge to choose and combine appropriate stages.
  • Know and be able to analyze the effect of feedback on circuit properties like gain, bandwidth, distortion, input impedance and output impedance.
  • Be able to analyze the stability of feedback circuits by Nyquist plots and bode plots of the loop gain.
  • Understand the workings of an oscillator and determine its oscillation criteria.
  • Know and be able to analyze the various building blocks inside an opamp like differential pair, current mirror and amplifier stages.
  • Know the basic workings of an antenna and be able to match it to a circuit.
  • Be able to design, simulate, build and measure circuits with transistors and opamps according to a given set of specifications.
  • Work in a scientific way by comparing calculations, simulations and measurements.
The content of this module is twofold. The larger part of this module is dedicated to electronics, and builds upon the knowledge obtained in the previous 2 modules. This electronics part starts with an introduction into modeling of non-linear components and an introduction into semiconductor physics of diodes, bipolar transistors and MOS transistors. This is subsequently used for analysis and synthesis of basic analog circuits. These analog circuits are then extended into systems with feedback to create well-behaved stable circuits and well-behaved oscillators. The last part of the module presents an introduction into (radio frequency) transmitter systems, more complex analog circuits and digital electronics. The material is presented in the form of lectures/exercise classes and labs/projects. The final project of this module is the design, realisation and characterization of an RF-transmit-receiver system to transmit audio wirelessly. The mathematics part of this module deals with solving sets of linear equations. This mathematics part introduces matrices, vectors and transformations. Some relevant properties of vectors and matrices that will be discussed in detail include (in)dependent vectors, the base, the dimension and the determinant. Linear Algebra is useful for implementing nodal and mesh circuit analysis methods and digital signal processing algorithms: this mathematics part of module 3 extends Electric Circuits in module 2.
