Recommended Prerequisites

Electrical Circuits; Electronics I.

Teaching Methods

Lecture classes using audiovisual means to present in detail concepts and theoretical foundations, illustrated through application examples.

Theoretical-practical classes to solve practical exercises, aimed at helping students in consolidating theoretic knowledge and preparing lab experiments.

Practical classes to carry out lab experiments related with the topics addressed in lecture classes and theoretical-practical classes.

The continuous evaluation process includes written tests, quizzes and lab experiments.

Learning Outcomes

After having been covered in Electronics 1 a wide range of knowledge on bipolar and MOS transistors, without going deep, Electronics 2 is aimed at studying in depth the project of basic building blocks of multistage amplifiers implemented in integrated circuit.

It is intended to provide the students with general knowledge on electronics, with a special focus on analog electronics, and skills to design electronic circuits of medium complexity.
