Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course is offered in a 10-CFU version (Industrial and Nuclear Electronics A + B), to which two 5-CFU courses (Industrial and Nuclear Electronics A and Industrial and Nuclear Electronics B) are offered jointly. The present detailed program defines aims, educational outcomes and syllabus for every joint course

 

Industrial and Nuclear Electronics A (5 ECTS)

The aim of this course is to provide a fundamental knowledge about electronic devices and electronic circuits for the processing of analog signals in the industrial and nuclear instrumentation. After a review of the Linear Circuit Theory, the Operational Amplifiers and related circuits are presented and applied to the nuclear chain. Laboratory sessions are foreseen.

 

Industrial and Nuclear Electronics B (5 ECTS)

The aim of this course is to provide an advanced knowledge about electronic devices and electronic circuits for the processing of analog signals in the industrial and nuclear instrumentation. Transistors and related circuits are presented and applied. Laboratory sessions are foreseen.

Prerequisiti

To attend the course the knowledge of Linear Circuit Theory foundamentals is required. To attend Industrial and Nuclear Electronics B a knowledge of the subjects contained in the programme of Industrial and Nuclear Electronics A is assumed.

 


Modalità di valutazione

The evaluation consists in a written and an oral examination.

The written test aims at verifying the ability to apply the knowledge of the course topics through the analysis of simple electronic circuits. Both formal and quantitative results are required.

In particular, for Industrial and Nuclear Electronics A the test verifies: i) the dynamic response of passive and active linear circuits in the time and frequency domains, ii) the forward and reverse biased behavior of the rectifying junctions and iii) the Operational Amplifiers.

For Industrial and Nuclear Electronics B the test verifies: i) the dynamic response of transistor based circuits and ii) the noise analysis and the signal-to-noise ratio in nuclear chains.

The oral test is a discussion on the written test and on the course topics: signal (and noise for part B) in nuclear and industrial electronic instrumentation.
