Aims

To introduce students to the basic concepts associated with analogue, focusing on the operation of semiconductor devices and circuits. This is followed by an introduction to digital electronics, where students will learn about binary systems and logic circuit design.

Outline Of Syllabus

Analogue electronics: semiconductors, doping, PN Junction, diode, diode circuits, introduction to bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and MOSFETS, operational amplifier (op-amp), op-amp circuits.

Digital electronics: binary and hexadecimal representations, binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra, logic gates, combinational circuits, arithmetic circuits, truth tables and Karnaugh maps, sequential circuits, flip-flops (D and RS), finite-state machines and implementation of arbitrary sequences, e.g. up-down counter.

Design, application, and operation of typical sample sensors used across the Engineering disciplines (Mechanical, Electrical, Civil)
