Professor RICCARDO CAROTENUTO
Objectives The first part of the course covers advanced electronic circuits for analog signal processing. In particular, the student will learn techniques for the wave generation, and for signal processing using conditioning and active filtering circuits. Further knowledge on power output stages and digital to analog and analog to digital conversion circuits completes the first part of the course. The second part of the course is devoted to CMOS IC design and analysis, and to FPGA architectures.

Autonomy of judgment: in order to pass the exam, the student must independently answer theoretical, analytical and design questions with free answer and is therefore led to develop independent judgment on the completeness, depth and correctness of the answers freely provided.
Communication skills: it is able to illustrate the theoretical and technical motivations underlying the properties of analog and digital fundamental circuits.
Learning skills: after passing the exam, the student is able to learn independently other basic characteristics of modern circuit electronics and to apply the same circuit configurations to new devices.
Programme Feedback: Elements of negative and positive feedback. The general structure of feedback. The four basic feedback topologies. Feedback amplifiers and their analysis. Examples of practical feedback electronics circuits.

Signal generation and waveform-shaping circuits: Basic principles of sinusoidal oscillators. Single transistor sinusoidal transistors. Bistable, monostable and astable multivibrators. Precision rectifiers. Logarithmic signal compression.

Operational amplifiers: applications. Active filters. Low-pass filter. High-pass filter. Bandpass filter. Tow-Thomas biquad filter. Switched-capacitors circuits: inverting and non inverting integrators. Switched capacitors filters. D/A and A/D converter circuits. Switched-capacitors D/A converter circuit. Switched-capacitors A/D Delta-sigma converter circuit.

Output stages: Class A output stage. Efficiency of the class A output stage. Class B output stage. Class AB output stage. Class AB output stage for Operational Amplifiers.
