ESSF01, 8 credits, G2 (First Cycle)

Valid for: 2014/15
Decided by: Education Board A
Date of Decision: 2014-04-07

General Information

Main field: Technology.
Compulsory for: E2
Elective for: N3
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish


The course is the starting point of the path towards design and development of analogue circuits like amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, AD-converters etc. It is the base for the courses Advanced Analogue Design, Analogue IC-design and Radio electronics. Further the course is useful for the project courses Analogue Projects and IC Projects.

Knowledge in linear systems and semiconductor physics are used. The course also presents interesting applications within control theory.

Amplifiers are used in many areas for example in mobile phones, signal conditioning, medicine equipment and in computers. The course gives a systematic method with which an optimal amplifier may be designed. The course (for students of Electrical Engineering) prepairs the student for a project, described in ESSF05 Project in Electronics and Sustainable Development
