Welcome to the course web site of the MSc course: Structured Electronics Design.
The course and this web site are developed and maintained by the instructors Chris Verhoeven and Anton Montagne
Time: 13:45 - 15:30
Location: EWI - Pi
At the beginning of the course, the application specification of an active antenna twill be presented.
During the course the design of this active antenna will be discussed step-by-step.
Motivation of the design steps, their underlying theory and application to other designs will be elucidated.
Structure of the lectures¶
Every odd lecture, a design aspect will be studied and homework will be given in which the presented material is applied to the design of the active antenna.
Every even Lecture, the homework will be discussed.
The course will be concluded with an oral or written exam about the design process of negative feedback amplifiers in CMOS technology.
Students need to prepare the lecture as follows:
Study the sections in the book associated with the lecture
Study the presentations of the lecture
Watch the videos of the lecture
Prerequisite knowledge and skills¶
