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.

Prerequisite

  1. This course is a follow-up course of the BSc course EE3C11. Students that have not succesfully finished this course should follow the homologation program.
  2. You should be able to work with LTspice and SLiCAP. Please study the SLiCAP tutorial.

Course material
