    Theoretical and computer analysis of analogue electronic networks; transistor and operational amplifiers; time and frequency responses; passive and active filters; phase locked loops.

    This paper follows an applied-systems-analysis approach to understanding analogue electronic circuits, with the focus on the way a circuit transforms inputs to outputs. We develop design-oriented analysis tools that allow us to calculate and understand the operation of an analogue electronic network, hence aiding design. In addition to developing analytic tools, we will use the computer programs LTSpice and Matlab to perform the calculations required to make predictions from theory or to provide a simulation tool for circuit design.
