Faculties and centres
The contents covered in the subject of Acoustic Transducers are a part of the conceptual basis
that give support to other subjects of the Intensification of Acoustics in the curriculum. It
is focused taking into special consideration the subject Acoustics, which develops parallel to
Optics in the Second Course, and the fact that there is a subject so called Acoustic Conditioning
and Isolation in the Third Course and a complete intensification devoted to Acoustics in the
subsequent courses. It relies on electro-mechanical-acoustic analogies and uses experimental
tools and techniques to bring together different issues.

Specific Competences: >> Competences Common to the Telecommunications Branch
Specific Competences: >> Competences Specific to Sound and Image
- Application of the parameters that characterize the acoustic transducers (microphones and loudspeakers).
- Assimilation of the necessary analytical and numerical techniques, including those based on the representation
with equivalent circuits, to determine the main characteristics of transducers, being these the most used in the
field of engineering related to sound and image technologies.
- Application of the experimental techniques necessary to characterize different types of microphones and loudspeakers.
- To obtain the performance and sensitivity of the electrostatic, piezoelectric and electrodynamic transducers from
their equivalent circuit representation.
