Completion of this course will enable an understanding of the operation of most of the basic circuits found in electronic equipment of both an analogue and a digital nature. The transistor as an amplifier is treated leading to an understanding of differential amplifiers and power amplifiers, but also extending briefly to high frequency effects and problems of handling small voltage signals. This leads to a consideration of operational amplifier small scale effects and thus to the questions of analogue measurements and instrumentation amplifiers. The effect of capacitors on analogue circuit performance is covered leading to active filters and the theory of oscillation in a context of feedback theory. Switched mode voltage regulators are introduced as well as the operation of monostable and astable circuits, waveform generating circuits and interfaces between simple analogue and digital signal areas.
