Intended learning outcomes

This course provides basic knowledge of circuit theory and electronics. It also provides knowledge of the various devices that can be found in a microcontroller and how these are supposed to be used.

This means that the student after completing the course will be able to

  • design, implement and demonstrate a circuit that is controlled by a microcontroller
  • explain the basic electrical and magnetic concepts
  • describe passivec omponents and electrical networks
  • perform network calculation and simulations of electrical nets
  • analyze basic electrical circuits
  • choose components in a circuit design
  • conduct measurements on electrical circuits.

Course main content

  • The microcontroller as an embedded system component.
  • Input and output devices in a microcontroller.
  • Charge, voltage, current, power and energy.
  • Electrical and magnetic fields.
  • Kirchhoff's laws and Ohm’s law.
  • Basic functions of components R,L,C, diode, transistor,operational amplifier and the transformator.
  • DC and AC voltage/currents.
  • Independent and dependent sources.
  • Circuit analysis with mesh and node ananlysis, superposition and Thevenin/Norton equivalents.
  • Transients in RC/RL-nets. 
  • Analyse RLC-nets including resonance circuits using the phasor method.
