Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
1. Design methodology for analog electronic systems. Necessary concepts to address the subject's final Project. 2. Advanced analog electronics concepts that will be reinforced during the projects development: 2.1 Stability and compensation 2.2 Real opamps, 2.3 LC and other advanced oscillators, PLLs and VCOs 2.4 Noise, noise models, analysis, linearity. 3. Analysis, design, simulation and implementation of an electronic system including analog components such as sensors, amplifiers, filters and oscillators.... 4. Technical documentation elaboration and presentation.
Learning activities and methodology
The teaching methodology will include: - Magisterial Classes, where the students will be presented with the basic knowledge they must acquire. Students will be supplied with lecture notes and key reference texts which will enable them to complete and acquire a more in depth knowledge of the subject. - Problems Classes, these are aimed at the solving of exercises and examples within the context of real case studies. These classes will be complimented with the resolution of practical exercises on behalf of the student. Active learning methodology. - Laboratory Practical Sessions - Woking lab Projects: design and development in the lab. PBL methodology. Encouraging service-learning with application-oriented Projects. - Projects presentation in a professional-like environment. - Group tutorials
