This subject aims to explore how basic techniques using AC electronic circuits can be used for precision measurement and control up to microwave frequencies in exciting deep tech applications like quantum technologies. It builds upon the foundation studies of electricity undertaken in an introductory physics subject. It assumes knowledge of calculus and of complex numbers. The subject develops practical and theoretical skills in the application of electronic circuits in the laboratory with particular emphasis on basic electronic measurement and control techniques. Op-amps and passive electronic components are treated as building blocks to create more complex measurement systems and signal processing. Basic techniques and extensions are discussed in the context of more advanced applications.
