Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit will focus on the following items:
i. Analog DC electronics: charge, current, voltage, Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws series and parallel etc., voltage divider, current divider, simplifying resistor networks, power and power transfer;
ii. Analog AC electronics: alternating current and voltage, frequency, period, phase, amplitude, P-P, Peak, RMS, capacitor circuit and reactance, inductor circuit and reactance, RC, RL circuits (series and parallel), phasor notation, impedance, admittance frequency response of L and C, resonance, ideal transformers;
iii. Amplification: ideal Op-amp, model, Open loop gain, inverting and non-inverting configuration;
iv. Digital electronics: introduction, digital logic, number systems, Boolean operators and truth-tables, design and simplification of circuits, Boolean laws and identities, S of P representation, K maps, combinatorial logic; and
v.Electromagnetism: electric and magnetic fields, static and changing, magnets, magnetic induction AC generator.
This unit is co-taught with Electronics Systems, 8224

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Understand and apply the basic concepts of analog and digital electronics (including analog DC circuit theory, digital logic and digital electronics, analog AC circuit theory, and amplification);

2. Apply their understanding of electromagnetism (including electric and magnetic fields, and the generation of electricity) to solving problems in a real-world context; and

3. Evaluate relevant and contemporary examples of electronic technology to apply to systems for future studies.
