Semiconductor structure. junction transistors: main configurations and their characteristics, transistor at low frequencies, the hybrid model. Operational amplifiers and applications. Digital Circuits. Laboratory exercises.
The course consists of lectures, laboratory activities, group data processing activities and presentation activities.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course also includes many laboratory hours where students can acquire those operational skills by carrying out activities dedicated to the knowledge of experimental methods, measurement and data processing. The verification of the students' learning outcomes is carried out with the preparation during the course, of written laboratory reports aimed at ascertaining the student's ability to apply the acquired knowledge, and with a final oral exam.
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
at the end of the course students are expected to become familiar with the scientific method of investigation and are able to apply it in the representation and modeling of physical reality and their verification.
They are able to apply their knowledge and understanding and to possess adequate skills both to devise and support arguments and to solve problems in their field of study.
They are able to identify the essential elements of a simple physical problem and to know how to model them, making the necessary approximations.
Are shown real electronic circuits and in describing the behavior they must be able to critically analyze the experimental data obtained.
Preparing reports on laboratory experiences they must present their research and the experimental results obtained by them to an audience of both specialists and non-specialists.
They must have acquired an understanding of nature and of the modes of research in physics and how this is applicable to many fields, even different from physics itself, for example in the electronic circuit, in order to be able to deal with problems in new fields through a independent study.
