Analog and digital signals are used to transmit information, usually through electric signals. In both these technologies, the information, such as any audio or video, is transformed into electric signals. The difference between analog and digital technologies is that in analog technology, information is translated into electric pulses of varying amplitude. In digital technology, translation of information is into binary format (zero or one) where each bit is representative of two distinct amplitudes.
This course is designed to help students to describe, analyze and design analog and digital electrical circuits and become familiar with the number system conversion, laws of Boolean algebra and Op-Amp characteristics.
After completing this course, students would have gained an intuitive understanding of electronics, they should be able to simulate simple analog circuits and write firmware and use FPGAs and be familiar with basic microelectronics technologies and trends.

In 1990, Paul was appointed Adjunct Professor at the Technical University of Denmark’s Institute of Automatic Control Systems. The Technical University of Denmark is one of the leading universities in Europe. He was responsible for teaching the industrial applications of microprocessors and networking technologies and after winning a competitive grant commissioned a pilot plant with the associated control systems.
As Associate Professor in the Australian University sector he was responsible for teaching computer and network systems engineering. In this capacity he twice won a university teaching award for excellence – one of only three staff to have achieved this distinction. In addition to this he received a National Carrick Citation Award for the development of world class curriculum.
As Deputy Chairman on the educational sub-committee of the Institute of Instrumentation & Control in Western Australia (IICA-WA) he was instrumental in the development of first degree in Instrumentation and Control in Australia.
His work received international recognition. Paul was invited to collaborate with some of the world’s leading organisations responsible for defining international standards and educational best practices.
He was the first Australian invited to be a reviewer for the American National Science Foundation (NSF) course and curriculum improvement program held in Washington, DC. Paul was the first Australian to be a judge for three IEEE International Education Awards for Academics. The IEEE is the world’s largest professional body for the advancement of technology. Paul was a key note speaker at the 12th International Conference on Electrical, Engineering/Electronics, Computer, Telecommunications and Information Technology in June, 2015. His presentation was; World class ICT curriculum – eLearning, pedagogy and international best practices. Paul is also an active researcher and reviewer for a number of international journals.
