Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Traditional lectures and exercises :
- lectures ;
- problem solving in audience.
Directed practical work. Analogue electronics (obligatory) :
- experimental study of basic circuits ;
- LTSPICE simulation of circuits ;
- report after each session.
Project : developing an acquisition system with an FPGA or RaspberryPi :
- implementation of a serial reading protocol (type I2C, USB, ...) ;
- tutorials provided by teachers / assistants.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation is based on :
