2021/22

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 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.

- 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)
