Feedback Electronic Circuits

Introduction to Analog IC Design

Course Overview

Feedback is essential in every system that is desired to be controlled. It allows the system to interact with the environment, take measurements and make necessary adjustments in its behavior to achieve a target output. In other words, it allows a system to get things in order according to a desired outcome. In electronic circuits, application of feedback gives improved performance, reliability and cost. Being able to apply feedback properly in electronic circuits is an essential skill of a design engineer. This course provides trainees with background in underlying concepts of feedback systems design with emphasis on electronic feedback circuits. This will enable the trainees to analyze and design circuits that employ feedback for control applications.

Course Prerequisites

The trainees for this course are expected to have taken electronics courses on amplifier circuits and linear systems analysis. Moreover, the trainees are expected to have strong background on circuit analysis of passive and active devices including DC and small-signal. It is also expected that the trainees familiar with algebra of complex numbers.
