This module will introduce electrical concepts and analogue circuit theory as a primary base for understanding both electrical and computer engineering.
It will also provide a foundation for understanding and designing simple circuits and systems built with digital electronic circuit elements.
The topics covered in this module include the following:
Circuit elements, Ohm´s law, Kirchhoff´s laws, simple resistive circuits, techniques of circuit analysis, capacitance, inductance, and first-order RC-circuits (natural and step response)
Simplified properties, function and use of diodes and MOSFET transistors. Number systems, binary arithmetic, Boolean algebra, logic gates, simplification methods, combinational logic and simple memory components, flip flops, counters, shift registers, and simple arithmetic circuits
Time delay, performance, area, and power consumption for simple digital circuits.
