You will study four main outcomes:
Outcome 1 will introduce you to a wide range of discrete semiconductor devices used in electronic circuits. This will give you a good knowledge and understanding of how to operate these devices.
Outcomes 2 and 3 allow you to understand the practical applications of the discrete devices studied in the first outcome. You will also gain experience in computer simulation and practical work.
Outcome 4 will cover the operational amplifier, which is widely used in analogue linear circuits to perform mathematical operations including addition and subtraction.
Candidates should have a basic knowledge and understanding of analogue electronic devices. Possession of a Higher in Electronics, C027 12, or some of the following NQ units may evidence this:
D133 11 Semiconductor Applications: An Introduction; E9SA 11 An introduction to Semiconductor Applications; E9S2 12 Amplification; D186 11/12 Applied Electronics
