Module 7: Analog Circuit Design DMCANA607
Nominal duration: 4 weeks (48 hours total time commitment)
This time commitment includes the structured activities, preparation reading, and attendance at each webinar, completing exercises, practical assessments and proctored assessments.
It is also expected that students spend additional time on readings, personal study, independent research and learning, practicing on remote labs and required software and working on any projects and assignments.
This module covers both the operation and application of discrete analogue components, such as diodes and transistors, plus integrated analogue components, such as operational amplifiers.
The purpose of this module is for the participants to develop knowledge of the fundamental concepts of analogue circuit design and simulation applicable to mechatronics and robotics.

Modules that must be delivered and assessed before this module:
Modules that must be delivered concurrently with this module:
METHODS OF ASSESSMENT
Assessors should gather a range of evidence that is valid, sufficient, current and authentic. Evidence can be gathered through a variety of ways including direct observation, supervisor's reports, project work, structured assessments, samples and questioning. This will include short answer questions on the knowledge content, the use of remote and virtual labs, and writing tasks to apply the learning to academic tasks.
CONDITIONS OF ASSESSMENT
Questioning techniques should not require language, literacy and numeracy skills beyond those required in this module. The candidate must have access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required.
The candidate must be permitted to refer to any relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications, codes, standards, manuals and reference materials.
Assessments will be open book assessment and may be completed off-campus. Invigilation software will be used for some assessments to ensure authenticity of work completed.
Model answers must be provided for all knowledge-based assessments to ensure reliability of assessment judgements when marking is undertaken by different assessors.
