Subject Overview:

This course will build on 431-222 and provide students with an understanding of the operation and design of a broader range of electronic circuits.

Topics include: current mirrors (BJT and MOSFET); biasing transistors with current mirrors: transistor internal capacitances and high frequency models; common-emitter/source amplifiers at high frequencies; commnon-base amplifier; cascode amplifier; BJT and MOSFET differential pair (large and small signal characteristics, frequency response); feedback and stability (Miller effect, design of feedback amplifiers, compensation); output stages (class B and AB); analog multipliers; comparators and timers (Schmitt trigger, astable, monostable, integrated timers) analog filters (types and principles, frequency transformations, Sallen and Key designs).

Assessment: One 3-hour end of semester examination, practice classes, tests assignments, laboratory reports and project reports, not exceeding 20 pages. Students will be notified of the weighting of assessment components at the beginning of the semester.
