Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Theoretical classes (T) for exposition and development of the syllabus, followed by problem solving and discussion of application examples. Laboratory classes (PL) to carry out experimental works with practical application of the theory exposed in the lectures. In laboratory classes, students use EDA tools to capture and simulation of analog and digital circuits, that, then they will implement on breadboard and use electronic laboratory equipment to test the circuit. The proposed assignments allows the students to understand some practical problems inherent to its implementation and analysis. At the end of each laboratory assignment the students will have to write a report.
Written Assessment (80%): two written tests (1st test – Analog Electronics 60%; 2nd test Digital Electronics
40%) or Exam Laboratory Assessment (20%): continuous.
Final Grade = 80% (60% Analog Electronics + 40% Digital Electronics) + 20% Laboratory.
Minimum Grades: Analog Elec. 8; Digital Elec. 8; Lab. 10.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
