After passing the course, the student can:
- Analyze functions in an electronic system and translate them into analog and digital hardware.
- Describe signals and signal processing in an electronic system in the time domain, frequency domain and in terms of filtering, sampling and quantization.
- Analyze and calculate the function of simple analog and digital circuits containing passive elements, sources, transistors, opamps and logic gates.
- Understand the transformation of physical quantities into electrical signals (sensors) and vice versa (actuators) and use this in the design of an electronic system.
- Calculate power consumption of components, circuits and systems at the level of the network analysis in this course.
- Build simple circuits, execute measurements and interpret and explain the measuement results.
This is a part of Module 4 of the Bachelor Industrial Design Engineering. See here for the compete description of this module.|
Aim of this course is to give students insight in the functionality of electronic systems. On the one hand a broad overview is given of the field of Electronics. On the other hand students get acquainted with the terminology and functionality of electronics by predicting and calculating the behaviour of electronic circuits and systems themselves.
- Electronic signals (time domain, frequency domain, periodic and non-periodic signals)
- Electric Circuits (sources, R,L,C, transformers, Kirchhoff's Laws, input- and output resistance) and Filtering (high pass and low pass filters)
- Semiconductor Components (diode, transistor, IC)
- Feedback, Amplifiers and OPAMPS (inverting and non-inverting amplifying circuits)
- Sensors and actuators (light, sound, temperature, distance, etc.)
- Interfacing and data handling (A/D and D/A converters, digital communication)
- Digital logic (combinatorial circuits)
- Energy (power, energy sources)
- Laboratory work
