Course content

The course consists of the subtopics circuit engineering, electronics, measurement techniques and electronics production. The student is provided with a basic understanding of the manner of operation of components and circuits used in military communication systems. This provides the cyber engineer with the opportunity to know what affects performance in the systems, but also a set of concepts to communicate the importance of the technology. The student will also develop skills in measurement techniques, and be able to use engineering and simulation tools. At the centre is the closing electronics project where the student creates his/her own product, and is responsible for the entire process, from idea to completion. 
The course is based on ING1502 Mathematical models 1, ING1504 Physics and ING2501 Mathematical models 2 (the latter is prior knowledge for the spring semester in course ING2502).

The circuit engineering part of this course is taught by a representative from NTNU/Gjøvik. This representative is responsible for implementing the course in accordance with this course description.

Course topics
• Lows for calculating charging, current, voltage, power and equivalents in DC and AC circuits 
• Voltage and current path in RC and RL circuits 
• Resonance 
• Alternating current calculations based on complex numbers 
• Basic connections with operation amplifiers, diodes and transistors 
• Amplifiers; construction and calculations 
• Oscillator 
• Components; structure, use, data sheet 
• Laboratory procedures and measurement techniques 
• Soldering 
• Electronics production; schematics drawing, simulation, print production, soldering, testing 
• Documentation 

Special conditions related to the assessments

Both partial examinations in the course must be passed. Any resit is in the assessment unit the candidate has failed. Unapproved laboratory records, report and individual project will result in failing the assessment unit “measurement techniques and electronics production.” A failed assessment unit in “measurement techniques and electronics production” is conducted as an up to 5 hour practical/oral examination. Any new grading on the assessment unit is carried out on everything that is part of it, after the grade has been set.

Learning outcome

Knowledge
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• describe characteristics of direct current and alternating current
• describe calculation and analysis methods for electrical circuits within the course area
• describe the structure and manner of operation of components within the course area
• describe the procedure in the production of circuit boards and be aware of requirements posed in production

Skills
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• perform calculations to find current, voltage and power in electrical circuits
• perform analyses and calculations in electrical circuits to determine simplifying equivalents
• connect simple electrical circuits, find suitable measurement instruments and use these to perform relevant measurements
• discover the manner of operation of simple electrical circuits
• use computer tools to draw schematics for, perform simulations of and create print-outs for simple electrical circuits 
• describe and use suitable equipment to produce and solder circuit boards in compliance with norm 
• document trials and experiments with records and technical report in compliance with norm 

General competence 
After completion of the course, the cadet is able to:
• use own words to describe the application and significance of electronics for engineering problems 
• state the norms for keeping laboratory records and technical report 

Working and learning activities

Lectures, compulsory laboratory assignments, exerciser and project. 

Sensor system

Examination is carried out according to the Regulations for Admission, Studies and Examinations (in Norwegian, “Forskrift om opptak, studier og eksamen”) at the Norwegian Defence University College.
