Module description

Students deepen their understanding of electronic circuits, with a more in-depth consideration of linear circuits (in particular the most important amplifier configurations), examination of non-ideal effects, and consideration of nonlinear circuits. Students deepen their understanding of the behaviour of solid state electronic devices. Students deepen their understanding of electrostatics and magnetostatics, and are introduced to electromagnetics. The behaviour of time varying signals along transmission lines is introduced, and important applications are considered.
