This subject provides an in-depth coverage of transistor (MOSFET and BJT) devices and their use in common circuits. In particular, students will study topics including: transistor operating modes and switching; principles of CMOS circuits; transistor biasing; current-source/emitter-amplifiers; low-frequency response; followers; class B amplifiers; current limiting; current sources and mirrors; differential pairs; feedback in amplifiers and stability; operational amplifiers; operational amplifier circuits; and voltage regulation. This material will be complemented by exposure to circuit simulation software tools and the opportunity to further develop circuit construction/test skills in the laboratory.
Design-focused field-effect and bipolar elementary transistor models, and design of elementary amplifier stages and biasing circuits. Static and dynamic behaviour of amplifier circuits including frequency response, feedback and stability, slew-rate and clipping. Operational amplifiers and opamp based circuits; voltage regulators, references and voltage converters. Verification of electronic circuits using simulation.

Credit may not be obtained for both ELEN30007(431-331) Electronic Circuit Design 2 and ELEN90056 Electronic Circuit Design
LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
In class lectures will alternate subject exposition by the reader with interactive discussion and problem solving. Laboratory experience will focus on solving meaningful design problems through circuit design and implementation, and verifying completed designs using real-world testing and simulation infrastructure.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Lecture and lab notes developed by instructors, textbook. Some material (lecture notes from other institutions etc.) publicly available through online resources.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Subject will also incorporate guest lectures from industry to provide an industry context to the topics covered.
