The course modules 'Analog electronics 1 and 2' focus on specifying and designing the most essential analog functions for embedded systems using standard integrated circuits and passive components.
The course “Analog Electronics 1” is the basic course. It presents the basic design theory and its application in the design of application-specific amplifiers using operational amplifiers.
Included in the course price are the course book, a license and one year support of the symbolic simulator SLiCAP (Read more here). For those who already have a SLICAP license, the course price is 249.00 EUR lower.
Course participants require a laptop and a license for MATLAB including the Symbolic Math Toolbox.
For those who cannot make use of a company license, a low-cost home version of MATLAB including the Symbolic Math Toolbox for self-study can be acquired. This license is not included in the course price.
The participant will make use of the new symbolic circuit simulator: SLiCAP-MATLAB. The capabilities of this simulator reach far beyond those of existing symbolic Spice simulators. It can be used for deriving design equations that relate properties of active and passive devices to those of the complete circuit. With the aid of these design equations and a component library with available components and their properties, the engineering of analog circuits can largely be automated. SLiCAP concurrently generates html design reports.
