Circuits and signals are foundational material for computer engineering. These areas provide the basic knowledge for the design of the circuits used to implement computers. Knowledge of the electrical circuits used to implement digital circuits and computers is crucial to the computer engineer.
The course aims to provide the student with:
- An introduction of circuit analysis concepts and theorems used in DC and AC analysis, alongside laboratory work in order to enable one appreciate the practicality of theoretical aspects.
- Skills for the analysis of electrical circuits of continuous current. Different methods and techniques for the analysis and simplification of electric circuits are studied in detail, making the student able to identify the most adequate technique in each case. Circuits are analyzed and simulated using PSPICE and then constructed in laboratory to compare calculated and measured results.
- The ability to formulate and solve the differential equations describing time behavior of circuits containing energy storage elements.
- The capability to design and construct circuits, take measurements of circuit behavior and performance, compare with predicted circuit models and explain discrepancies.
