Fundamental analog elecronics is studied in this course. The course is structured on a scenario of designing and constructing a HF radio transceiver. Topics in analog electronics in the frequency range d.c. to 30 MHz range are covered. Block diagram concept. Passive electronic components (R, L, C, diode, crystals, etc.) and integrated circuits, as active devices, are discussed. Filters, power supplies, audio amplifiers, speakers, microphones, radio amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, and antennas are progressively introduced towards the construction of the transceiver. Minimum mathematical background and  definitions    (such as solution of first order differential equations and phasors) are introduced only when necessary. All terminology and jargon are introduced. Every student is required to possess a soldering iron, desoldering pump and a set of hand tools listed below.
