For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability

This subject develops a fundamental understanding of the concepts behind and tools used for the analysis and design of analog and digital electronic systems. This is one of four subjects that define the Mechatronics Systems major in the Bachelor of Science and it is a core requirement of the Master of Engineering (Mechatronics).
Analog systems - time-domain differential equation models of RLC networks, initial conditions, transient response, frequency response, impedance functions, two-ports and dependent sources, matrix representations, transformer models, small-signal transistor models, op-amp models, active filter realisation;
Digital systems – encoding information and digital data processing, CMOS realisation of basic logic gates, timing contracts, acyclic networks, switching algebra, combinational logic synthesis, cyclic networks and memory, finite-state machines, metastability, synchronous timing and synchronization, data-processing paths, control logic, stored-program machines and microprocessor based systems.
Aspects of these topics will be explored through laboratory work involving simulation tools and hardware experiments.
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO's)
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
1. Analyse and design passive and active analog circuits that achieve specified transfer function characteristics
2. Apply fundamental tools in the analysis of combinational and sequential logic systems, with an appreciation for the role and limitations of important digital abstractions
Hurdle Requirement: Students must pass the end of semester written exam to pass the subject.
