A comprehensive course for non-electronic engineers to gain insight, practical knowledge and skills in electricity and analog electronics, essential to work in projects together with electronic engineers and to learn how to handle electronic measurement instruments.
The course consists of two modules that can be selected individually but the knowledge of module 1 is required for module 2.
Contact the course leader in case only module 2 is wanted.

Hands-on practice with measurement equipment (DMM, Scope, function generator), measurement techniques, Spice simulator and its application. Bode diagram.
Module 2: Basics analog electronics (15 lessons, 2 tests)
Semiconductor technology, diodes, bipolar junction transistors, FETs, MOS transistors, switching transistors, power output stages, ICs, feedback theory, operational amplifier and its application, sensors. Component specifications, temperature influence. Instrumentation amplifiers. DC and AC analysis, gain. Power supplies (linear and SMPS). EMC and SI, feedback, stability, noise. Oscillators (introduction to phase-locked loops). Modulation and demodulation. Thyristor, triac. Latchup. Hands-on amplifier, power supply, simulation.
Study load: 5 hours a course week.
Course price per module:
Module 1: € 1550,-
Module 2: € 2900,-
Methods: lectures, demonstrations, exercises, assignments, hands-on, tests. Course material: book, handouts. Award: diploma or certificate, dependent on the results of the three tests.
This course is certified by the European society for precision engineering & nanotechnology (euspen) and the Dutch Society for Precision Engineering (DSPE) and leads to the ECP2-certificate, depending on the results of the tests.
