Single-Course Danish 5 ECTS

Analogue design

Overall Course Objectives

The objective is to enable the student to apply engineering methods:
-to analyse, design, realize and test linear and non-linear analogue electronic circuits with specified properties,
-to analyse, design, realize and test impulse circuits with specified properties,
-to understand circuits for and functionality of electronic power amplifiers.

Learning Objectives

  • use hybrid Pi and T small signal models for analysis of electronic circuits containing bipolar transistors
  • construct differential amplifiers, current sources and simple voltage amplifying stages based on bipolar transistors
  • connect different simple amplifier sub circuits into one complete amplifier
  • analyse a power amplifiers power conditions and calculate the power-conversion efficiency
  • investigate whether cooling is necessary and if necessary to select the appropriate cooling method
  • identify the error sources of a non ideal OP-Amp and evaluate their influences on the surrounding circuit
  • apply feedback on a amplifier circuit and predict the stability of the amplifier after application of feedback
  • apply integrator and Schmitt Trigger circuits based on OP-Amp’s to construct triangle and square signal oscillators and monostable multivibrators

Course Content

Differential and multi-stage amplifiers, DC current sources, voltage references. The non-ideal operational amplifier, bias/offset, frequency function, slew rate and power bandwith. Negative feedback for selected topologies, stability. Power amplifiers, class A, B and AB, efficiency, distortion. Oscillators. Modulators. Noise calculation.
