This course is designed to allow you 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 different electronics devices work, such as amplifiers, filters, ADCs, and DACs work, but also gives several examples on how to simulate these electronics 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 and Digital Electronics: in section 2 of the course, 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 3 of the course we will be focusing on the simulation of analog electronics. We will begin by reviewing the theory of inverting and non-inverting amplifiers using op-amps and will be simulating these electronics 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 power electronics rectifier circuit commonly used in power supplies.
3. Digital Electronics Simulations in MATLAB/Simulink: in section 4 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. We will work on two projects, one for each type of circuit. In the combinational circuits project, we will be building a circuit that detects a combination of three consecutive logic 1s in a string of eight bits. In the sequential circuits project, we will be designing a garage door opener.
As mentioned above, 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.

My name is Ricardo Romero and I am an Electrical Engineer with over ten years of experience in Power Systems. I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am also a licensed Professional Engineer in Power Systems in the states of Arizona, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia in the United States.
Although my professional experience is mainly in Power Systems, I am also passionate about other topics in Electrical Engineering including Analog Electronics, Control Systems, Digital Design, Digital Signal Processing, Electric Machinery, and Power Electronics. I gained knowledge in these areas of Electrical Engineering during my undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as during my professional career, and am excited to teach about them in Udemy.
My goal is to create high quality courses that cover both the theory behind a topic as well as real-world applications. Should you have any questions regarding any of my courses, please feel free to contact me.
