Synopsis

:

This course covers some topics in functional electronic circuits. The circuits are derived from a diverse electronic circuitry existed in many electronic instrumentation. The function, the behaviour and the characteristics of the functional circuits are analysed. Design examples are presented to guide students with the necessary knowledge of how to design the functional electronic circuits based on certain predetermined specifications.
