Course detail

Modelling and Computer Simulation

FEKT-KMPSAcad. year: 2017/2018

Simulation and modelling in electronics engineering: technological, element and circuit level. Simulation of technological precesse in microelectronics, modelling. Simulation of electrical behaviour of active elements, characterisation, set-up and use of models. Circuit level simulators, macromodelling.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student is able to:
- describe the process of simulation and creating models at different levels,
- control circuit simulator on the circuit level,
- analyze data based on the results of simulations in OrCAD PSPICE,
- simulate simple or moderately complex circuits and analyze their characteristics.

Prerequisites

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.
