Abstract :
Modern Electronic circuits and systems are calling for more demanding performances levels. This tendency concerns typically the working frequencies of digital and radio communication systems, the switching speeds or transmission speeds. From a general point of view this tendency concerns the control of physical quantities that are becoming more and more extreme. Consequently, this course is aiming at presenting the various knowledge and basic techniques that are useful for an Electronic engineer each time he his facing design issues that stem from ¨extreme¨ Electricity or Electronic (EE). Knowing that it is a short course, its contend has been limited to the Electrical extremes that are currently encountered by a design engineer, such as: The behaviour of passive components at High Frequencies, the design of voltage or current sources that work at High Frequencies, the techniques for conditioning physical quantities having extreme magnitudes. From a pedagogic point of view, this course brings some complementary information to the courses: Mixed Electronic and RF circuits (UVE4Ba). Moreover, it constitutes a theoretical basis for the electronic design projects of S3 and S4 and a recommended prerequisite for attending the various courses that are proposed in S5 in the field of analog electronic. (Particularly the projects of RF circuits design).
Plan :
  • Electric safety
  • Behaviour and limitations of passive lumped and distributed components
  • Decoupling and bypassing at High Frequency
  • Powering high speed circuits (Decoupling)
  • Conditioning physical quantities having extreme magnitudes
  • Low voltage (electrometers)
  • High voltage
  • High currents
  • Low currents (Coulomb meters)
  • High and low resistances and impedances.
  • Volume and surface resistivity
  • Prerequisite :
    UV E1B et UV E2B (1° A) : Electronic. E2C (1° A): Circuits and systems. UV E3A (2° A): Analog Electronic. UVE3B (2° A): Analog Circuits and systems.
