Undergraduate Course: Electronics Project Laboratory 2C (ELEE08018)

Course Outline
SchoolSchool of Engineering CollegeCollege of Science and Engineering
Credit level (Normal year taken)SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate) AvailabilityAvailable to all students
SCQF Credits10 ECTS Credits5
SummaryThe students will design and analyse the analogue and digital sampling components for a speech digitiser circuit.

The fundamental characteristics of the digital signal abstraction are investigated along with the properties of basic logic function gates. Using a progressive modular approach, simple arithmetic and control function hardware is constructed and its performance measured and analysed.

The laboratory lays the foundation for measurement, analysis and interpretation of the performance of digital systems studied in later years. The content is directly linked to the course Digital System Design 2.
Course description In this course, students will take five laboratory sessions covering analogue circuit design for the speech digitiser circuit. They will also take five laboratory sessions covering digital system design.
