2020/21

The aim of the course is to teach to analyse and design basic electrical and electronic circuits that are the base of complex embedded analog and digital systems used in mechatronics applications. The module will start from basic building blocks in the DC and AC domains together with the necessary analysis and simulation techniques. A complete section of the module will be used to analyze available technologies and components. The last section is devoted to digital basic building blocks.

The course includes 8 experimental laboratory exercises (4 CFU) to be performed at the LED laboratories. The labs are organized in groups of 3/4 students. For each lab, groups must prepare weekly reports that are evaluated and will be part of the final score.

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 exam will be ABSOLUTELY COMPARABLE with the standard one (same structure, same evaluation): 4 exercises + 4 theoretical questions
- In this “virtual” session, THE OPTIONAL ORAL PART WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE
- The oral part of the exam can be decided ONLY by the professor in case of doubts regarding the written exam
- In this “virtual” exam, your “output” will be obviously a report (PDF file) instead of a written sheet
- You will have 2 hours to prepare the report: 90 minutes for the exercises and 30 minutes for the questions using the template you will download from the course web page (Portale della Didattica) some days before the exam
- For this exam we will NOT use any lockdown browser (Respondus) but ONLY a standard BBB Virtual Classroom
- You will be FREE to use any notes and books (as usual) plus simulation tools (LTSpice for example)
- WE TRUST ON YOU: you will NOT be allowed to use colleagues, phones or any other “support system”
- You can also use your tablet to fill the template and generate the final PDF file
- In the report you can include:
o Equation editor formulas
o Pictures
o Graphs, plots and/or simulations
- Please RENAME the filename of your report as EFaA_XXXXXX.pdf (where XXXXXX is your ID/matricula, only the 6 numbers WITHOUT the starting “s”)
- BEFORE the 2 hours deadline, you MUST UPLOAD YOUR PDF report on the Portale della Didattica (like you normally do for weekly lab reports)
