Analog Circuits and Interfaces
Instructor: Clemens Wegener
Credits: 6 ECTS, 4 SWS
Capacity: max. 12 students
Language: Deutsch/English by preference
First Meeting: TBA
We will find out about technical foundations of electronics with examples of circuits for analog synthesizers. Starting from discussing simple components, working through some theoretical background, we will start to understand more complex circuits like voltage controlled filters and oscillators. In the final part of the course we think of controling analog circuits with analog sensors. Each student should think of an experimental interface concept and build it.
No knowledge in electronics is required. You should, however, bring quite an amount of curiosity to follow the course. Please send a motivational letter to clemens.wegener (at) uni-weimar (dot)de. For buying components, we need a little budget of 20-40€. Of course you can keep your manufactured works. Up to now, additional private soldering tools are needed, because Covid-19 obligations prevent the use of our workshops. However, these obligations might change over time. For up-to-date information please write to clemens.wegener (at) uni-weimar (dot)de. The course will take place in live-streaming sessions. A prerequisite is therefor a live-stream capable device including camera and microphone.
Successful completion of the course is dependent on regular attendance, active participation, completion of assignments, delivery of a relevant semester prototype and documentation. Please refer to the Evaluation Rubric for more details.
