Title:Analog and Digital Electronics
Long Title:Analog and Digital Electronics
Module Code:ELTR8002
 
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Advanced
Field of Study: Electronic Engineering
Module Delivered in no programmes
Module Coordinator: JOSEPH CONNELL
Module Author: PADDY COLLINS
Module Description: This course introduces students to ic circuit design using MOSFET circuits. It analyzes some basic MOSFET circuit architectures and works up to the design and analysis of a MOSFET based op-amp. It intoduces students to a variety of analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters. It also covers a range of power supplies and voltage regulators.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Analyze MOSFET based circuits using small-signal and DC analysis.
LO2 Discuss the frequency performance of MOSFET circuits and quantify this performance for some common architectures.
LO3 Analyze the stability and frequency performance of an op-amp architecture.
LO4 Be able to describe in detail the principle of operation of a selection of common ADC and DAC converters.
LO5 Describe the design and analyze the performance of voltage regulators - including switching mode power supplies.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
Students will have a knowledge of electronic components and circuit theory.
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
