In this module we use a computer-based teaching approach to provide a thorough understanding of network theory, integrated-circuit operational amplifiers and feedback.
You review and extend the network theory underpinning this module and discover the characteristics and limitations of operational amplifiers (op-amps). We also examine the effects of various feedback configurations on op-amp performance and investigate a wide range of op-amp applications and design circuits to given specifications.
We look at basic amplifier concepts, basic op-amp configurations, feedback principles and op-amp imperfections.
Lectures are the main vehicle for presenting fundamentals and doing worked examples. We provide a detailed set of course notes.
Tutorial sessions (laboratory based) cover the analysis and design of circuits associated with particular applications using LTSPICE (electronic circuit simulation software).
Practical work is used to develop traditional practical skills but is enhanced by computer simulations. You work in groups of not more than three.
You learn how to:
