12 credits, NQF Level 7


In this module students cover advanced aspects of analogue circuit analysis and design. The topics covered in this course include operational amplifier applications such as in filters and differential amplifiers, small-signal modelling and linear amplification, single-transistor amplifiers, analogue integrated circuit design techniques, amplifier frequency response, feedback amplifiers and oscillators.


On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:

1Understand data representation and measures of variability
2Apply the concepts involved in probability theory
3Use mathematical statistics to solve sampled data
4Perform parametric tests non-parametric tests
5Perform calculations based on correlation analysis
6Perform calculations by using statistical inference
7Do linear regression analysis

Workload requirements

The module equips the student to perform analysis, design and performance assessment of advanced analogue circuits and systems.There will be a combination of lectures that include interactive elements, tutorials in which students will do individual work and experiments that will be done in the laboratory by student teams. All outcomes will be assessed by means of tutorial work, assignment, class tests and a final examination.
