This course will teach you how to simulate any analog or digital electronics device in MATLAB/Simulink, including active low-pass filters, active high-pass filters, audio equalizers, inverting amplifiers, non-inverting amplifiers, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), and digital-to-analog converters (DACs). This course not only gives a review of the theory of how amplifiers, filters, ADCs, and DACs work but also gives several examples of how to simulate these devices using MATLAB/Simulink.
The MATLAB/Simulink models for the analog electronics and digital electronics devices created during the lectures are available for download with each lecture.
The course is divided into the following sections:
1. Introduction to MATLAB/Simulink for Analog/Digital Electronics
In this section, we will begin by reviewing the passive and active components commonly used in electronics. We will then install MATLAB/Simulink’s free trial version and will discuss how to find components in the library browser, how to add them to models, and how to build the models and run simulations.
2. Analog Electronics Simulations in MATLAB/Simulink
In section 2 of the course, we will be focusing on the simulation of analog electronics. We’ll start by reviewing the theory of inverting and non-inverting amplifiers using op-amps and will be simulating these circuits. We will then review low-pass and high-pass filters and will be simulating these circuits. We will end the section with two projects. In the first project, we will design an audio equalizer.
In the second project, we will be designing a full-wave rectifier circuit commonly used in power supplies.
3. Digital Electronics Simulations in MATLAB/Simulink
In section 3 of the course, we will be focusing on the simulation of digital electronics. We will begin by reviewing how analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) work and will then simulate these devices. After this, we will also review the theory and simulate digital-to-analog converters (DACs). We will also be building and simulating combinational and sequential digital circuits.
In each section, we will go over several models to illustrate how we can design and simulate electronics devices in MATLAB/Simulink. The models are also available for download so that you can follow along, as well as use these models and modify them to create your own designs.
By learning how to simulate analog electronics and digital electronics devices in MATLAB/Simulink, you will be able to further your career in electrical engineering and electronics design.
