    This course is one of the compulsory courses for students seeking a computer engineering degree. It is recommended for students with an interest in the middle level of electronics and related disciplines.

    Students who have taken ELEC S202 are not allowed to take ELEC S222.

    Advisory prerequisite(s)
    You are advised to have already studied foundation courses in mathematics or physics.

    This course aims to:

    • Provide students with a basic understanding of electronics principles, circuits and systems;

    • Develop the fundamental theoretical and practical skills required to carry out engineering analysis;

    • Provide essential background knowledge for higher-level courses in electronics and related disciplines;

    • Provide students with the ability to solve new problems in the field of electronics.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Introduction to signals and circuits: Basic electrical principles; methods of circuit analysis; signals and waveforms

    • Digital principles: Combinational circuits; logic design and implementation; sequential circuits; analogue-digital conversion

    • Transistors and basic circuits: p-n junctions and transistors; transistor circuits

    • Digital systems: Memory systems; microprocessors and microcontrollers

    Learning support
    There will be regular two-hour tutorials, short laboratory sessions, day schools and surgeries throughout the course. Students are expected to attend short lab sessions; you will find it difficult to obtain high marks on the assignments without attending the lab sessions.

    There will be four assignments and one assignment (multiple choice). Students are required to attend two day schools held on Sundays; you cannot pass the course without such attendance. At the end of the course, there is a three-hour final examination. Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).

    Online requirement
    This course is supported by the Online Learning Environment (OLE). You can find the latest course information from the OLE. Through the OLE, you can communicate electronically with your tutor and the Course Coordinator as well as other students. To access the OLE, students will need to have access to the Internet. The use of the OLE is required for the study of this course.

    A computer system suitable for running the ELEC S222 software package is essential. The minimum configuration of the computer system is:

    • Pentium IV CPU

    • Microsoft Windows 7 or above

    • SVGA display card and colour monitor

    • 1 GB RAM

    • 2 GB free hard disk space
