The course is a follow-up to Analog Electronics and give you deeper insight in design of negative feedback amplifiers. Amplifiers are the core of analog systems. This is why the theory is applicable on many analog systems. The course gives a complete design strategy for amplifiers. Several aspects on amplifier design are covered for example noise and frequency compensation methods. The course is a firm base for continuing studies in analog and radio related courses and it also touches some control theory.
