This unit will introduce you to the fundamentals of analog and digital electronics. You will learn the working principles of commonly used active and passive electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors, and operational amplifiers with their applications. This unit will provide you with sufficient knowledge of Boolean algebra necessary to understand digital electronics. You will learn logic gates, combinational logic circuits, logic minimization, flip-flops, counters and other basic digital logic circuits, and their applications. You will develop skills in analysing electronic circuits and modelling analog and digital circuits using industry-standard simulation software. In this unit, you will design analog and digital systems for real-world applications and verify their functionality in simulations. You are also required to complete compulsory practical activities that involve building electronic circuits to further strengthen your knowledge. This unit promotes UN sustainable development goal 12-Responsible Consumption and Production by developing electronic circuits to reduce wasteful consumption.

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.

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).
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.

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%).
