TRON06051 2019 Circuit Simulation and Layout
This Electronics module, introduces students to circuit layout, schematic capture, circuit simulation, and use of electronic instruments for measurement.Simulation allows students to explore how different configurations, component selections, noise, and signal sources affect circuit designs.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Identify electronic circuit symbols and layout circuits according to layout conventions
Complete a circuit design using schematic capture software tools
Use simple virtual instruments to measure circuit outcomes
Transfer and design a circuit from schematic design software to PCB CAD software
Create testing Plan from pcb netlist
