Live recording

Until now, only the last four lectrures of this BSc course have been recorded. Live recording of the remaining lectures has been planned for June 2020. The exact days and times and dates will be anounced in Brightspace.

See: preliminary recording programme

Educational method

At the beginning of the course, the application specification of an amplifier to be designed will be presented.

Step-by-step design of this amplifier will be discussed during the course.

Motivation of the design steps, their underlying theory and application to other designs will be elucidated.

Examples and exercises will help the participants to understand the design steps and their interaction.

The course will be concluded with an exam.
