Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • Amplification, input resistance, output resistance, bandwidth
  • Ideal operational amplifier
  • Practical operational amplifier
  • Bode diagrams
  • Negative feedback and stability
  • Semiconductor components, especially diodes and transistors
  • BJT switches
  • Orientation about BJT amplifiers
  • Differential amplifiers
  • Power amplifiers
  • Computer programs for measurement
  • Computer programs for simulation of electrical circuits
  • Power supplies, series regulator and switching regulator

Intended learning outcomes

The main purpose of the course is to provide knowledge of the most common electronic components and how they are used, as well as to provide knowledge and training in computation, simulation and measurements of electronic systems.

After completion of the course the student should be able to:

  • explain the structure and function of different diodes and transistors and know the area of use. Furthermore be able to explain basic simulation models.
  • explain fundamental electronic ideas concerning analogue building blocks.
  • explain different operational amplifiers specification and use.
  • describe the concept of feedback and its effects on an amplifier
  • describe different types of power amplifiers and how to do simple thermal analysis.
  • explain different principles for power supplies.
  • describe with models the electronic components which are addressed in the course and use them in simulation regarding impedance, amplification and frequency response.
  • work independently with design, simulation, prototyping and testing of analogue function parts.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 4.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Written examination (TEN1; 4.5 cr.), grading A-F
Practical exercises (LAB1; 3 cr.), grading A-F

The final grade is mathematically calculated. Grading A-F.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

No information inserted

Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
