This course addresses the fundamentals of electronic systems, with emphasis on applications relevant to the automotive area.
This course covers the fundamentals of electronic systems. Following a top-down approach from the system level to the device level, the main tools for analyzing modules for analog and digital electronics are presented with emphasis on applications relevant to the automotive area.
Analysis of amplifiers and their frequency behaviour. Circuits with operational amplifiers. Basic knowledge about logic technologies and families. Design of basic digital combinatorial and sequential circuits. Properties and design of data acquisition systems.
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to analyze the frequency behaviour of circuits with operational amplifiers, understand the key concepts of digital combinatorial and sequential circuits, and design data acquisition systems.
Linear algebra, differential calculus, complex arithmetic.
Mathematical analysis (differential and integral calculus); complex arithmetic; theory of linear electrical networks: time domain and frequency domain analysis.
Operational amplifiers, filtering and amplifying circuits. Circuits for digital applications: combinational and sequential circuits, memories, and programmable devices. Principles of analog to digital and digital to analog conversion.
- Functional block decomposition of complex systems; frequency and time domain representation of signals, analog and digital signals. - Amplifier configurations and main parameters. - Bode plot and dynamic behavior of circuits in time and frequency domain. - Operational amplifiers and negative feedback: inverting and non-inverting stages, and other circuits with operational amplifiers. - Real operational amplifiers. - Principles of analog to digital and digital to analog conversion. - The CMOS inverter. - Digital systems: combinational and sequential circuits, interfacing, dynamical properties. - Digital circuits implementing arithmetic functions. - Registers and counters.
- Theory Lessons - Classroom training aimed at solving problems inherent to the subjects treated in the lessons.
General organization: 26 hours of lectures and 14 hours of classroom training aimed at solving problems inherent to the subjects treated in the lessons.
- Lecture notes of the course available online - Reference book: R. Jaeger, “Microelectronic Circuit Design, ” McGraw-Hill
- Lecture notes and examples of worked problems available on the course website - Supplemental material: R. Jaeger, “Microelectronic Circuit Design, ” McGraw-Hill
Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale facoltativa;
Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam;
... Description The exam includes a written test and an optional oral test. The oral test can be requested according to the rules described below. The written exam will be given at the scheduled date and time, as communicated to students and will consist of two parts: Fundamentals of Electrical Systems and Fundamentals of Electronic Systems. Each part has a maximum score of 16 points. Each part has * 8 multiple-choice or numerical quizzes for a total of 8 points. If correct, a multiple-choice question is awarded 1 point, an incorrect answer results in 0.25 penalty points. Numerical quizzes are considered correct (1 point) if the numerical value falls within a 5% numerical tolerance (unless otherwise stated). * A problem with multiple questions: 8 total points. The problem is a classical exercise to be solved with paper and pen. Duration The duration of each module is 50 minutes, for a total of 100 minutes. For Students with special needs, the duration of each module is 65 minutes, for a total of 130 minutes. Permissible and non-permissible aids During the exam it is possible to use * a scientific calculator * pen, pencil, drafting instruments * The exam is a “closed book” examination: books and formula sheets are not admitted. * Everything that is not officially allowed, must be considered as a non-permissible aid. Cheating is a serious academic offense. Students discovered engaging in such behavior during the exam shall earn a failing grade and their case shall be reported to the Academic authorities for further disciplinary actions. Grading The final score is obtained summing up the results of the two parts. The exam is failed if any of the following is verified * total score (Fundamentals of Electrical Systems and Fundamentals of Electronic Systems) lower than 16 points * partial score (Fundamentals of Electrical Systems or Fundamentals of Electronic Systems) lower than 7 points The total score of the two parts will be limited to 30 points in case of higher score. Oral Exam Candidates with a positive total score have access to the optional oral examination that consists of a one or two questions related to the course program of both modules. In this case, the final score is the mean value of the written and oral exam. To access the written and oral exam, it is necessary to independently apply through the official registration website. The oral exam is * mandatory for students with a non sufficient total score (16 or 17 points) * mandatory in case of doubts regarding the written exam. In these cases the Students will be informed a few days after the written test * upon request of the Students
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.
