Basically all engineering systems have one or several important parts which may be classified as electronics, some systems are even completely electronic. In particular, most measurement situations are centred round the conversion of a physical quantity to an electric signal. This has brought about a world wide industry and labour market, and most engineers are assumed to have basic knowledge of electronics.

This course is a basic course electronics with a focus on analysis and design of electronic systems.

The course consists of circuit theory and electronics. In the circuit theory part, basic tools of analysis, physical components, and their ideal circuit models are treated. The circuit theory is then used in the electronics part to study semiconductor components and electronic systems.

Basic electric quantities: Current, voltage, potential, resistance, conductivity, permittivity, impedance, admittance, and power.

Basic analysis tools:Kirchhoff's laws, calculational methods for linear, time invariant circuits, node analysis, and two-terminal equivalents.

Basic components: Resistors, inductors, capacitors, voltage sources, current sources, transformers, amplifiers, and transmission lines. Modelling: Physical circuits with ideal circuit elements, transfer functions, and filters.

Semiconductor components and electronic systems: operational amplifiers, amplifier circuits, diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, and digital systems.

Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: Written exam. Non-compulsory home assignments may give bonus points to the written exam.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.


Assumed prior knowledge: For N: FMFF20 Mathematical Methods of Nanotechnology. For F: FMAF05 Mathematics - Systems and Transforms. For BME: concurrent participation in BMEA05 Signals and Systems.
The number of participants is limited to: No
The course overlaps following course/s: ETE115, EITA35, ESS010, ETE022, ETIA01
