The aim of this course is to familiarize students with electronic functions based on integrated circuits. It deals with analog and digital functions for communications as well as for continuous and discrete signal processing. It revolves around the following concepts: amplification, generation of analog and digital signals, A/D and DA conversion and analog modulation.

At the end of this course the student will be able to:

  • design and analyze circuits centered on the operational amplifier,
  • produce analog and digital signals,
  • know the different operating principles of A/D and D/A converters,
  • choose a converter according to the constraints in terms of resolution, conversion speed and cost,
  • understand the operation of the basic circuits of a data acquisition chain (samplers/blockers, converters, amplifier, clock…),
  • master a technique for transmitting information by analog amplitude modulation technique.
