ELE2503 Electronic Systems

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Engineering
Student contribution band : Band 2
Grading basis : Graded
Version produced : 23 May 2022


Pre-requisite: ELE1502 or Students must be enrolled in the following Program: GCEN or GEPR


This course together with the previous course ELE1502 Electronic Circuits provides the student with an appreciation of most of the analogue and digital building block circuits which are commonly used in electronic equipment.

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.
