ENAE12015 - Analogue Devices and Applications

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This course introduces the operating principals of basic analogue electronic elements such as diodes and transistors. Students then use these basic elements to construct analogue devices such as amplifiers, active filters, oscillators and regulated power supplies. Students also apply laboratory techniques and appropriate software tools to the analysis of analogue electronic circuits. Students use fundamental electrical engineering language in context and document the process of design, modelling and analysis. They present information, communicate, work and learn in a professional manner. On satisfactory completion students should be able to research and discuss the application of analogue electronics devices in different applications such as signal processing and communication. Students achieve practical activities outcomes by attending a residential school.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

Unit Availabilities from Term 2 - 2022

There are no availabilities for this unit on or after Term 2 - 2022

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Written Assessment 30%
4. Written Assessment 0%
5. Practical and Written Assessment 30%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
