Description: | A summary of modern electronics currently used in research. The goal is to provide students with sufficient understanding to analyze and design analog and digital circuits of moderate complexity. Practical aspects of circuit analysis and design will be emphasized. Examples will be selected to illustrate applications of electronics used in the instrumentation of modern physics experiments. An overview of technologies available for a variety of instrumentation applications will be provided. |
