General Information

Main field: Technology.
Compulsory for: D2
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish


The student should get an understanding for the basics of circuit theory and analysis, and the related electronic components. The student will be able to use this knowledge together with an introduction to the electronic components given in the course to be able to build simple electronic circuits to interface with embedded systems. The student will also get an insight into embedded systems, and the interaction between software-hardware-interface electronics in such systems.
