SYNOPSISELECTRONIC COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN covers the general introduction to the basic concept and fundamentals of electronic simulation and the applications ofelectronic packages for electronic circuit simulation at the circuit level and the logic level. Attention is also given to the concept of simulation for analogue, digital logicand mixed-signal circuits using various types of simulation analyses using an electronic simulation package such as Protel/Altium Designer, ORCAD, PSpice, orElectronic Workbench. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMESUpon completion of this course, students should be able to:1. Describe the concept of electronic circuit simulation and the applications of electronic simulation packages. (C2)2. Apply various types of analyses and tools provided in the simulation package and analyze the simulation results to ascertain its compliance to the electronic circuit theory. (C4)3. Draw the various analogue, digital and mixed-signal circuit schematics and simulate the circuits using a particular simulation package.
