The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
The course is a free continuation of the basics of semiconductor components in the course "Sensors and Measurement of Physical Quantities" and expands the topic of designing simple electronic circuits. In the next part, more complex analog and analog / digital electronic connections used by measuring and control systems are discussed.
Learning outcomes
After successfully completing the course, the student should be able to explain the function of basic semiconductor components and design and assemble simple electronic circuits using them.
