ANNOVAZZI LODI VALERIO (titolare) - 6 ECTS

Prerequisites

Basic theory of passive linear networks. Principles of electrical engineering.

Learning outcomes

This module is focused on the main analog linear and non-linear applications of junction diodes, field effect transistors and operational amplifiers. Moreover, it offers a basic knowledge of MOS logical families and digital circuits. The final goal of the course is to teach the students how to analyze and perform measurements on analog circuits, and the design of simple circuits with op-amps and discrete MOS devices.

Course contents

The course of Electronics for Industrial Engineering includes two modules: 'Elettronica' (Electronics) by prof. Annovazzi Lodi and Static energy conversion by prof. Zanchetta.

The first module, described here, is an introduction to linear and non-linear analog electronics, and to digital electronics.

Programme of the module of Electronics

Operational amplifiers.

Ideal operational amplifier. Adder, subtractor, integrator, differentiator. Network synthesis with op-amps. Bias currents and voltage offset. Multivibrators.

Junction diodes.

Avalanche and Zener diodes. Voltage regulators. Rectifiers.

JFET and MOS devices.

Biasing. Small signal model. Basic amplifier stages. Current mirrors. The MOSFET as a switch.

Digital circuits

Basic digital gates. MOS integrated gates: n-MOS inverters; the CMOS inverter. The latch and the Flip-flop. Memories. D/A and A/D converters.

Linear networks.

Amplifiers and their circuit models; Theorems of Norton, Thevenin, Miller. Time and frequency response of single time constant circuits. Bode diagrams.

Teaching methods

The course includes classroom lessons where the theory of active elements and electronic circuits of the course is developed; classroom exercises where numerical examples are performed on analysis and synthesis of amplifiers and signal processing circuits with discrete elements and operational amplifiers; finally, laboratory activity consisting in measurements on active and passive, linear and nonlinear electronic circuits, selected from those presented during lessons.

Assessment methods

The exam for the Module 'Elettronica' consists of a written test

with circuits using discrete active elements and operational amplifiers, to

evaluate the candidate's ability to apply the analysis methodologies

presented during the course. The maximum mark of the written test 24/30, and can be increased by giving an oral test to evaluate the knowledge of the main analog and digital circuits presented in this

course. The oral test is compulsory to fix an insufficient mark of the written test.

For students giving also the module Conversione statica dell’energia, the final mark of the full course Elettronica per Ingegneria Industriale is the mean of the marks of the two modules.
