Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Electronics Engineering Fundamentals Analog Electronics 1 Electronics Instrumentation I It is strongly recommended to have passed both last matters before Analog Electronics II.
By the end of this content area, students will be able: 1. To have a coherent knowledge of the branch of engineering focused on the industrial electronics, including some at the forefront of the branch in advanced analog electronics. 2. To get the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding of analog electronics to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems and electronic systems in real applications, using established methods, and with the ability to combine different approaches to the problems. 3. To get the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to develop and perform designs to meet specified requirements, even defined by themselves, to cover a certain necessity in an application. 4. To acquire an understanding of the different methodologies applied to the analog electronics, and an ability to use them and identify real effects in terms of stability, noise and other parameters. 5. To obtain the ability to design and conduct appropriate experiments to measure the characteristics of electronic systems, to read into the obtained data, and to draw conclusions that allow them to verify the required specifications, or alternatively to reconfigure the systems to improve them. 6. To develop the skills that are necessary to work in an electronics laboratory, and apply them in the designs and developments of advanced analog electronic systems. 7. To learn how to select and use appropriate equipment, tools and methods to develop, characterize and analyse analog electronic systems. 8. To obtain the ability to combine theory and practice to solve problems of analog electronics, analysing their functioning both on sheet and in the lab, and developing systems that can cover some specifications. 9. To get an understanding of applicable techniques and methods in advanced analog electronics, and of their limitations due to real effects, produced by the setup, parasitics, interferences, noise and other sources.

Learning activities and methodology
- Lectures to introduce fundamental concepts. - Flipped classrooms, in which the cocepts will have introduced previously by means of videos and will be discussed in the regular classroom. - Reduced group classes to solve problems and concepts application, in a triple methodology: - normal classroom: problems solution, discussion, students presentations. - Informatic classrooms to make simulations over actual circuits used in daylife in electronics. - Laboratory sessions: the key sessions, we intend that you use the most time as possible in the lab and that you learn how to use it properly, making your subsystems and systems developments of the selected Projects, under 2 teacher's supervision. Tutorial interviews with the teachers to clarify doubst related with the Projects to be implemented. Own student work by searching information on books and web, datasheets comprehensive reading and use of information, design, simulation of Projects.
