Course Description

This course contains some of the underpinning knowledge of a program, which designed for a person to be able to undertake design, select, install, commission, maintain and carry out repairs on advanced electronic equipment and systems.
The Knowledge and skills addressed in this course include:
 Electronic modelling concepts to analyse the behaviour of the electronic circuit
 Development of practical skills in electrical measurement, testing and problem solving related to electronic circuits.
• Theory and application for the amplifying and switching concepts of using diodes, Zener diodes, BJTs and FETs and op-amps.
• Two port networks analysis
• Frequency response and feedback of an amplifier
• Operational amplifier applications, Function generator applications and Different types of filter and its applications

Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Participate in individual small research projects in designated areas of underpinning knowledge including:

· The operation and application theory of BJT/ FET amplifiers in various circuit configurations, which may include calculations for various amplifier parameters but not limited to: voltage & current gain, input & output resistance and power.

· Theory of feedback, application of two-port modelling technique and applications of operational amplifier.

Participate in individual and team problem solving scenarios/ case studies dealing with a range of practical exercises including:

· Skills in selecting most appropriate amplifier based on application criteria; construction of amplifier circuits; test, measure and confirm the AC operating conditions of BJT and FET amplifiers in various configurations and with specified bias; stabilisation and feedback using oscilloscope and other currently available measuring instruments.

· Development of skills in applying modelling and analysis methods to construct different feedback amplifier and filter circuits and take electrical measurement at the output: voltage, current, resistance, using analogue and digital multimeters, oscilloscope and other currently available measuring instruments.

Participate in supervised workshop practice in simulated workplace environment, including:

· The design and construction of BJT/ FET and Op-amp amplifier circuits, development of testing procedure to verify the performance specification, diagnosis of faults in the systems and completion of commissioning process.

 · The design, construction and commissioning of amplifier circuits with feedback, diagnosis of faults in the systems and repair the fault.Specifications will be provided.

Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until further courses related to the competency are completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Progressive Written Assessments
• Written Assignments
• Scheduled Practical Exercises
• Work Simulation Project


Assessment Tasks

1. Three Progressive written assessments.

2. Two simulation projects on design, construction, testing and commissioning of BJT/FET amplifiers and op-amp filters. Individual performance and reports are compulsory

3. Scheduled Practical Exercises (must pass all practical exercises).

4. Written assignments with given task-documents. Verbal questioning on the submitted assignments is required.

To pass this course, student must complete all the scheduled practical exercises and written assignments with satisfactory verbal questioning, the project work to specifications, pass the written examinations and submit well documented project reports.
