Learning outcomes:
The students
-have a broad knowledge of microelectronics and telecommunications, which is complemented by the latest developments
- have learned how to simulate complex circuits and systems on the basis of practice-oriented problems by using commercially available simulation software, like e.g. Matlab and PSpice
-can process the gained simulation results graphically, to interpret and assess them, to find perfect solutions before implementing them technically
-have improved their social and communicative competence by working in a team and presenting their solutions in front of their team in the laboratory
