AbstractIntroductory lecture on electronic circuits. Transistor fundamentals, analysis and design of transistor based electronic circuits such as amplifiers and filters; operational amplifiers and circuits based thereon.
ObjectiveModern, transistor-based electronics has transformed our lives and plays a crucial role in our economy since the 2nd half of last century. The main objective of this course in electronic circuits is to introduce the concept of the active device, including operational amplifiers, and their use in amplification, signal conditioning, switching and filtering to students. In addition to gaining experience with typical electronic circuits that are found in common applications, including their own Gruppenarbeit and Fachpraktikum projects, students sharpen their understanding of linear circuits based on nonlinear devices, imperfections of electronic circuits and the concept of design (as opposed to analysis). The course is a prerequisite for higher semester subjects such as analog integrated circuits, RF circuits for wireless communications, A/D and D/A converters and optoelectronics.
ContentReview of transistor devices (bipolar and MOSFET), large signal and small signal characteristics, biasing and operating points. Single transistor amplifiers, simple feedback for bias stabilization. Frequency response of simple amplifiers. Broadbanding techniques. Differential amplifiers, operational amplifiers, variable gain amplifiers. Instrumentation amplifiers: common mode rejection, noise, distortion, chopper stabilization. Transimpedance amplifiers. Active filters: simple and biquadratic active RC-filters, higher order filters, biquad and ladder realizations. Switched-capacitor filters.

ContentGet to know and understand basic transistor and op amp based electronic circuits. Build and operate simple electronic circuits including supply decoupling. Carry out and understand different, principal measurement methods such as DC- and AC-analysis, time and frequency domain measurements, impedance and transfer function measurements. In the lab we will have a closer look at the following topics and circuits: characterization of a real capacitor including non-idealties; common-emitter transistor amplifier with emitter degeneration; characterization of a real operational amplifier with non-idealties; band pass filter with op amp, resistors and capacitors; data converters; oscillator and function generator based on an op amp.
