Study guide description: TLT-8106 BASIC COMMUNICATION CIRCUITS (link to study guide).
Goal: Skills for designing, simulating, mounting and measuring (including automatic measurements) of a real circuit. Basic to intermediate knowledge about basic analog circuits used in communications: amplifiers, oscillators, data converters.
1. Signals and their measurements.
2. Amplifiers: basics, low-noise amplifier, power amplifier. Amplifier noise.
3. Feedback and stability, voltage controlled oscillators.
4. Impedance matching.
5. Data converters.
1. Completed laboratory and auditorium exercises with designed, simulated,
