Circuit Theory

Intended learning outcomes

The aim with the course is:

  • to give knowledge of components and circuits for analog electronics
  • to give basic knowledge of design principles and analysis methods for analog electronic circuits
  • to give ability in analog simulation
After the course the student shall have skills to:
  • characterize analog systems with system characteristics
  • design amplifiers by use of operational amplifiers
  • compensate for operational amplifiers non ideal properties
  • design amplifiers by use of transistors
  • perform functional and performance simulation
  • implement the design
As parts of the course the student is expected to be able to:
  • design circuits with help of linear models
  • determine frequency response of amplifiers with Bode plots
  • determine the characteristics of a feedback amplifier
  • determine the margin of stability of a feedback amplifier
  • design stabilizing networks

Course content

Semi-conductor theory. Simple transistor gain stages, linearized models, frequency properties. Mille effect, in- and output impedance, distortion.
Amplifiers, Bode plots, feedback and stability.
Properties of operational amplifiers, realization of operational amplifiers, differential stages, current mirrors, output drivers, common-mode and differential voltages, common-mode rejection ratio, slew rate, open-loop gain, bandwidth, offset, bias current.

Fundamental linear and nonlinear circuits using operational amplifiers. Power amplifiers, thermal effects, feedback, complementary and pseudocomplementary output stages. Integrated power amplifiers.

Analog simulation.

About teaching and examination language

The teaching language is presented in the Overview tab for each course. The examination language relates to the teaching language as follows: 

  • If teaching language is Swedish, the course as a whole or in large parts, is taught in Swedish. Please note that although teaching language is Swedish, parts of the course could be given in English. Examination language is Swedish. 
  • If teaching language is Swedish/English, the course as a whole will be taught in English if students without prior knowledge of the Swedish language participate. Examination language is Swedish or English (depending on teaching language). 
  • If teaching language is English, the course as a whole is taught in English. Examination language is English. 


The course is conducted in a manner where both men's and women's experience and knowledge are made visible and developed. 

The planning and implementation of a course should correspond to the course syllabus. The course evaluation should therefore be conducted with the course syllabus as a starting point.
