The course introduces basic circuits with operational amplifiers, continues with the description of linear systems, analysis of their characteristics and fundamentals of synthesis frequency filters. It deals with the principles and features of circuits for generating signals and a controlled oscillator including the PLL circuit and its use. The last part of the course is devoted to basic amplifier stages with transistors.
