 Aims To understand how electronic circuits are designed.To understand how electronic devices can be represented by simple, linear equivalent circuits.To show how complex circuits can be sub-divided into building blocks and these blocks in turn represented by linear equivalent circuits which can be analysed using standard circuit techniques.To understand the interaction between the building blocks to allow estimation of important systems parameters such as gain, input output resistance etc.To appreciate the importance of negative feedback in improving electronic systems performance and tolerance.
 Learning outcomes A. Understand transistor amplifier characteristics (small signal transistor amplifier circuit, current mirror, high frequency limitation, amplifier type and feedback topology, and Miller effect).B. Analyse transistor amplifier building blocks and how they are combined to perform output.C. Analyse transistor amplifier performance and its stability.D. Integrate transistor amplifier circuit to multi stage. E. Construct transistor amplifier circuit.
