UK Foundation Licence Changes

There have been some interesting changes announced to the UK Foundation Licence examination syllabus, which will come into effect September, 2019.

The major change, from my initial review, is the introduction of digital signals in Section 2F. This includes audio sampling using CD “Red book” examples, how digital signals are processed, what are DACs and ADCs. Section 3M then covers SDRs.

There are some other additions such as introducing polar plots for antennas. The safety section has also been expanded to cover earth leakage RCBOs.
