  • Overview

    The aim of this module is to provide the student with an understanding of the operation of various types of transistor and operational amplifier circuitry, to provide the student with the ability to analyse and model various types of analogue circuits and to give the student an introduction to the design of oscillators, filters and other circuits. 

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Analyse the functional operation of simple semiconductor devices such as diodes and BJTs, and investigate their applications in practical circuits.
    2. Use bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) in the development of various amplifier circuits.
    3. Develop a methodology for analysing the behaviour of transistor and operational amplifier circuits.
    4. Design simple circuits such as amplifiers, integrators, oscillators and filters using operational amplifiers.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
