This unit expands on the first year study of electronic circuits to add a deeper understanding of the properties and characteristics of analogue electronics. Students will gain an understanding of analogue electrical systems and an understanding of how such systems can form part of larger technical systems. Fundamental skills will be gained in the analysis, modelling and implementation of low frequency electronic circuits and systems. Topics covered include: Diodes; simple rectifier circuits. Transistors; modelling, bias circuits, transistor amplifier topologies and characteristics, frequency response of amplifiers, small signal and power amplifiers design. Operational Amplifiers; characteristics, feedback circuits, analogue signal processing The unit prepares students to undertake future studies in Electronic/Communication Engineering.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
