Analogue Electronic Circuits

FEKT-KAEYAcad. year: 2017/2018

Basic circuits of modern analogue technology with the emphasis
on the combination of intuitive and computer aided analysis and design.
Rectifiers, smoothing filters, passive stabilizers.
Amplifiers of voltage, current, low and high frequency.
Feedback and stability of amplifiers. LC and RC oscillators.
Mixers, modulators and demodulators. Selected analogue integrated circuits: Operational amplifiers, stabilizers,
low frequency power amplifiers.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able to:
- describe the basic properties and behavior of modern analog circuits, discrete and integrated,
- understand their physical function and interaction with other circuits,
- describe and propose their typical applications, as well as basic procedures for analysis and design.


The student is supposed to have basic knowledge in electronic components (especially transistors, diodes and passive components) and further knowledge of the basic principles and laws of electromagnetism.

Course curriculum

1 Classification of el. circuits. Parameters of linera, nonlinear and time-varying circuits in the time-and frequency-domains. Resistive and LC circuits. DC operating point, linearization.
2 Half-wave and full-wave rectifiers with various types of smoothing filters. Features, design rules.
3 Voltage regulator with reference diode, with current buffer, principle of feedback regulator.
4 LF transistor amplifiers, common emitter and collector. DC operating point setting and stabilization.
5 Basic features of OpAmp. The inverting and noninverting connection. AC amplifiers. Analysis of combined operational networks. OpAmp as a comparator.
6 Feedback types and their influence to amplifier parameters. Practical utilizations of Black equality.
7 Basic types of LC oscillators - feedback and negative resistance types. Oscillation conditions. Stabilization of oscillation. RC oscillators, amplitude stabilization.


The aim of this course is to make students familiar with the state of the art of analogue technology by a suitable combination of theory, intuition, and computer simulation. The subject respects the fact of the co-existence of discrete circuits and permanently increasing amount of integrated circuits.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Computer exercises are mandatory. Properly excused absence from seminars can be replaced by appointment with the teacher.
