Circuit design

Circuit design

  • Description


Students receive a task and must solve it from A to Z as in their later professional life. This is a good opportunity for checking how schoolchildren implement their knowledge and where certain skills are still lacking.


The project work encourages the schoolchildren’s motivation. They learn how to deal with a problem self-dependently and solve it successfully.


Learning objectives

  • Independent development of a project
  • Circuit design
  • Analysis
  • Troubleshooting
  • Circuit design
  • Boosting of personal decision-making and resposibility

The subject-specific modules Amplifier circuits and power supply circuits are complete projects, which the students can either work on independently or on instruction. the subject-specific modules contain all required electronic components.


Amplifier circuits

  • Single-stage amplifier using an emitter-base circuit
  • Bootstrap circuit
  • Darlington circuits
  • Two-stage, capacitively coupled amplifier
  • Two-stage, directly coupled amplifier
  • Amplifier with negative feedback
  • Differential amplifier
  • Push-pull output stage
  • Barrier junction-FET in various base circuits

Power supply circuits

  • Voltage regulation with Z diode
  • Voltage regulation with Z diode and parallel transistor
  • Voltage regulation with Z diode and series transistor
  • Power supply with adjustable voltage and adjustable current limiting
