Contents of lectures Introduction. Models of passive and active electronic components. Basic analysis of electronic circuits. Advanced techniques in simulation. Hierarchy and simulation of complex circuits. Electronic components. Printed circuit board design. Layout editor. Routing. Printed circuits boards at high frequencies. Signal integrity. Electromagnetic compatibility. Assembly and testing the realized device.
Contents of exercises It is performed on computers and in the laboratory. On the computers, a simulation program, a selection of components for making devices, and design of printed circuit boards are used. In addition, assembling of printed circuit boards and testing of realized electronic devices in the laboratory is envisaged.
