Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge in mathematics e.g. algebra, dealing with complex numbers and powers of ten. Basic study technigues.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is:

  • to give a theoretical basis for analysis and synthesis of passive and active analog circuits.
  • to give knowledge and ability in analysis of such circuits.
  • to give ability in elementary amplifier construction.
  • to give basic knowledge and abitlity in measurement technology.
    After passing the course the students should be able to:
    • compute current, voltage and power in general dc- and ac- circuits with structured methods.
    • determine Q-point for transistors in amplifier stages.
    • determine small signal input and output resistance and voltage gain for a given amplifier.
    • determine voltage gain for circuits with operational amplifiers.
    • use a simulation program for analysis of analog circuits.
    • determine parameters for active filters with given cutoff frequencies.
    • verify, through simulation and with hardware, that a filter reach its requirements.
    • fullfil a simple design task from specification to design in hardware.
    • use different types of instruments in measuring electrical quantities.
    • make descriptions of different types of problems in measuring, and telling how to avoid those
    • make descriptions of measurement disturbancies, their reasons and methods to reduce them.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
