Learning outcomes

Aim of this course is to introduce the student to the experimental analysis of the most common analog electronic circuits and to the design of modern automated instrumentation systems. To this purpose in this course the student will use programmable digital instrumentation to prepare experimental setups dedicated to the analysis of analog circuits as well as to the measurement of analog characteristics of digital components such as power supply current, voltage levels etc. The course will be held in an electronics lab equipped with programmable instrumentation and workstations. Occasionally simulations will be performed in order to compare theoretical calculations with experimental results.
