About the course

Lectures and laboratory work will give the students opportunity to deepen their knowledge on the design and analysis of analog electronic circuits. Theoretical background as well as practical realizations of the circuits will be presented and discussed. Basic knowledge on semiconductor devices and linear electronic circuits is required to follow the course.



  • Introduction.
  • Distortion in amplifiers.
  • Differential amplifier as input stage.
  • Power amplifiers (design of audio power amplifiers).
  • Operational amplifiers (realistic model, applications).
  • Voltage comparators (with and without hysteresis)
  • Relaxation and sinusoidal oscillators.
