The classroom exercises are normally small projects related with topics covered during lessons. The experimental laboratories (mandatory) include the practical verification of the circuits designed during exercises and lessons, with measurements and behavior analysis. There are 8 different experimental exercises, with the possibility of repetition. The laboratory exercises are carried out by teams of 3/4 students, who have to prepare a report for each exercise to be delivered as a weekly homework. The reports are evaluated and contribute to the final score.

The laboratory exercises are carried out by teams of 3/4 students, who have to prepare a report for each exercise to be delivered as a weekly homework. The reports are evaluated and contribute directly to the final score (-2 / +4 points). In case of persisting restrictions related with COVID-19 emergency, the experimental lab will be organized at home giving experimental boards and components to the groups.
The reference text, which covers most of the topics is: J. Millman, A. Grabel, P. Land: Electronics Millman, McGraw-Hill, 2008. Copies of the presentations used in lectures, examples of written examination and exercises, as well as text and datasheets of the components used for the laboratory exercises are available. All course material is available for download through the didactic website.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale facoltativa; Elaborato scritto prodotto in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam; Group essay;
The final exam consists of two distinct written parts that are carried out together in the same day: one part related with exercises / project analysis (such as those seen during the course and in the laboratory exercises) and a second part related with theory (three or four open questions, 5 minutes time for each question). The first part has a typical duration of about 60 minutes, while the second depends on the number of questions. The exam lasts less than two hours. During the first part (exercises), you can use notes, forms, educational materials, etc... but is NOT allowed the use of personal computers (only classic calculators). During the second part (theory), you cannot use any material and you do not need calculators. The two parts are evaluated separately and an average score is made (in thirtieths). The score obtained from the written exam is summed with the evaluation of laboratory exercises (delta max. between -2 and +4). The resulting score can be registered as it is or further integrated (between -3 and +3) with a possible optional oral session. NEW ADDITIONAL EXAM RULES: - if you reserve the exam and you cannot attend it, please unbook or send an email to communicate about your absence. If you don't do that, you will not granted to attend next exam session - you still can REJECT the score, BUT ONLY ONCE - to pass the exam, both sections MUST be greater or equal than 12/30 otherwise the exam will be FULLY FAILED
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
