Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Students are expected to have completed EEET2276 Electrical Principles or equivalent courses, or provide evidence of equivalent capabilities.


Course Description

This course covers the concepts of digital and analogue communication systems, which includes basic Electronic devices and their characteristics, op-amp, basic amplifier circuits, amplifier frequency response, A-D, D-A converter Principles and different types of feedback amplifiers.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):

At Associate level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Descriptive, formula-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the practice area.
1.2 Procedural-level understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the practice area.
1.3. In depth practical knowledge and skills within specialist sub-disciplines of the practice area.
1.4. Discernment of engineering developments within the practice area.
2.1 Application of established technical and practical methods to the solution of well- defined engineering problems.
2.2 Application of technical and practical techniques, tools and resources to well defined engineering problems.

At Bachelor level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:

1.1. Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
1.3. In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
2.1. Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering solving.
2.2. Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.
2.3. Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.
 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

Upon successful completion of the course, you should be able to:

  1. Apply skills in designing basic op-amp circuits.
  2. Develop electronics modelling concepts to analyse the behaviour of the electronic circuit with emphasis on BJT and FET amplifiers.
  3. Measure, test and solve problems related to electronic circuits
  4. Analyse and design simple A-D and D-A converters and selecting most appropriate Analog-digital interface circuit based on application criteria.
  5. Apply concepts of feedback amplifiers, identifying advantages & disadvantages of feedback.
  6. Design and construct voltage amplifier circuits, then test and measure


Overview of Learning Activities

The learning activities can include:

1. Face to Face Teaching: to get familiar with theoretical principles of electrical fundamentals, electronic devices and circuits, and introduction to the application of these principles to basic problem solving.
2. Personal reading (e.g. prescribed sections of the textbook): to reinforce/strengthen your understanding of principles and applications
3. Practice sheets: you need to attempt solving practice sheets alone and with friends. Participation in team based learning will be helpful.
4. Assignments: to challenge you through application-oriented problems, and will enhance your problem solving skills.
5. Tests: assessed during semester. Solutions will be discussed in class to give you feedback. The test provides information both to you and the lecturer about progress and the feedback will help you improve your performance in the final examination.
6. Simulation, Videos, Lab sessions: To understand the key concepts, practical applications and how to analyse results, you are encouraged to watch videos on special topics available in the Carlton library. The lab work /simulations allow you to develop skills in analysing circuits, fault finding and experimentation.
 


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.
The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards and handbooks, and web-based resources.
