    OVERVIEW

    The course provides theoretical and practical skills on circuits, architecture and the use of electronic instrumentation for
    time and frequency domain measurements, for analog and digital signals.
    It also has integrated instrumentation with personal computer, measurement instrumentation and software tools
    simulation and development.
    The course includes experimental exercises for the synthesis and consequent analysis of analog and digital signals.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide the student with the knowledge and operational skills necessary to tackle the problems
    related to the study, design and simulation of simple electronic circuits to be created and tested in the laboratory with
    appropriate instrumentation.

    The student will be able to:

    1 - Understand the methodologies of design, development and experimental verification of electron circuits.

    2 - Develop simple projects starting from the speci you assigned.

    3 - Check the operation of real electronic circuits knowing how to operate with electronic instrumentation, collecting the results in adequate documentation.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Upon completion of the course, the student will have acquired the following skills:

    1. Understand the methodologies of design, development, simulation in the analog and digital domains as well as of experimental verification of electronic circuits.
    2. Develop simple projects starting from assigned speci ces, considering the representation both at the block diagram and at the circuit level and also conducting the stability analysis of the considered systems.
    3. Carry out the tests of the functioning of real electronic circuits knowing how to operate with circuit simulators and electronic instrumentation.
    4. Draw up adequate documentation as evidence of the progress of the project and check carried out.

    PREREQUISITES

    Fundamentals of electronic devices and circuits

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lessons are roughly divided for one third as lectures and two thirds as experimental exercises.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    In order to guide the student to the effective learning of the operational characteristics of analogue and numerical (digital) circuits some basic circuits will be the subject of the lessons and exercises to complement what has already been learned in the course "Embedded Electronic Systems" (filters, oscillators, phase comparators, multipliers, etc.).

    A significant part of the course will be dedicated to the development of two projects:

    •  Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) based on a Colpitts circuit with bipolar transistor. The project will be verified through circuit simulation.
    •  Phase Locked Loop (PLL) based frequency synthesizer. The project will concern architecture, the stability of the ring, the problems of circuit realization both for the analogue and for the digital part. The implementation will make use of a specially provided individual kit comprising active components (transistor and bipolar integrated circuits), passive (resistors and capacitors), an FPGA board and a breadboard.

    The program thus outlined also includes the presentation and use of electronic laboratory instrumentation.

    RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY
