|Subject Overview:|| |
This course will build on 431-331 Electronic Circuit Design 2. Students completing it will gain skill for designing practical electronic circuits and exposure to some of the techniques and tools involved in the design, manufacture and assembly of real-world electronic circuits.
Topics covered: circuit fundamentals (eg. noise in electronic circuits and Âsystems, high frequency design), sub-systems (eg. crystal oscillators phase-locked loops and frequency synthesisers), trade-offs in electronic design (eg. illustrating topics such as analyog vs digital approaches, component precision vs robust design), component technologies (leaded vs SMD, parasitics, real behaviour of passives and their choice), PCB design techniques (CAD, multilayer boards, layout and routing for EMI, power distribution, high speed and mixed signal), electronic manufacturing (PCBs, component loading and soldering techniques).
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end-of-semester written examination (60%); 1-hour mid-semester examination (10%); and laboratory/assignment reports due throughout the semester (30%).|
