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 Basic Wireless Communication Technique, RF Amplifier Design, Analogue IC-design and Integrated 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 also includes both a written and oral presentation of a project result.

The student is asked to write a brief reflection on the education.


Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: Examination consists on four parts: Written exam, project, hand-ins and laboratory work. To be allowed to write the exam, the project must be approved. The grade is based on the result on the exam. There are two re-exams, but the laboratory sessions are only given once a year.

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.
