Course title : Analog Electronics
Course number : 1009-04
Period : 1st quadrimestre
UEC (unités de cours) : 4 (4*7 = 28 hs)
UEX (unités d’exercices) : 1 (1* 7 = 7 hs)
UTR (unités de travaux pratiques dédoublées) : 2 (2 * 2 * 24,5 = 98 hs)


Logical continuation of the Physical electronics course, this course proposes a systematic study of the basic analog blocks: differential amplifiers, mirrors of current, output stages, all in CMOS and bipolar technology.

The basic blocks are then assembled for the design of various types of amplifiers on one or more stages.

Important concepts such as stability and frequency response are introduced. Finally, more complex structures are studied, in particular the stabilized power supplies.

Specifics competances

To understand the operation mechanisms of basic semiconductor devices and applications: diode, MOS capacities, bipolar and MOS transistors.

Intuitive and mathematical approach starting from the fundamental equations of electricity and quantum mechanics.

Course of introduction to electronics and micro-electronics: the applications are approached to follow the analog and digital electronics specialized courses.

The sessions present the theoretical bases, in a rigorous way, and the tools which will be necessary to the resolution of exercises. The presence and participation of the student is very important. Useful information for the examination is available only during the theory sessions.


Laboratory sessions: 7. Laboratory sessions are duplicated. The laboratories are illustrated with examples, consisting of the assembly and measure of circuits composed by several transistors, discrete and integrated components. Some sessions are based on the modeling and Spice simulation in an EDA environment (Cadence).

They are of primary importance to allow a comprehension by the practice of the concepts necessary to handle components and modeling using EDA tools (Cadence and Spice), their interfaces, the interaction with the environment and the handling of the measuring devices.

During these sessions, the student writes a report regarding the measures and the analysis of the results obtained. A group of students is systematically chosen to present the main aspects of the laboratory work. Groups of 2-3 people. List groups to be returned before the 1st laboratory. Points by presentation. Reports returned at the end of the session. Additional points by report.
