Demonstrate an understanding how diodes and transistors work – concepts of diode rectification, and the transistor as an amplifier or as a switch.

Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe the operation of the diode; forward and reverse diode curves; Zener diodes; switching diodes, etc.
  2. Be able to use a multimeter to check the condition of a diode by checking the forward and reverse resistances
  3. Be able to design simple DC power supplies using half wave and full wave diode rectifications
  4. Be able to describe the operation of the bipolar junction transistor (BJT) as an amplifier; NPN and PNP transistors; common emitter, common base, and common collector configurations.
  5. Be able to explain common emitter transistor characteristics
  6. Be able to describe the operation of the transistor as a switch; OFF condition and SATURATED condition.
  7. Be able to use a multimeter to check the condition of a BJT by checking the forward and reverse resistances between the three leads.
Demonstrate an understanding of the operational amplifier and various electronic designs based on it (e.g., instrumentations amplifiers, oscillators, filters)

Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe the basic characteristics of an operational amplifier (very high open loop gain, very high input impedance, single rail and double rail power supply configurations.
  2. Be able to describe the basic configurations of an operational amplifier (e.g., inverting, non-inverting, voltage follower, differential amplifier.
  3. Be able to describe practical operational amplifiers and configurations, including offset nulling, differential amplifier or analog subtractor, inverting analog adder or audio mixer, high pass and low pass filters, Wien-bridge sine wave oscillator, sine/square wave function generator.
Demonstrate an understanding of electronic noise in instrumentation and industrial systems and how to deal with it.

 Objectives:

  1. Understand the types of noise coupling (common mode and differential or normal mode noise)
  2. Be able to identify various noise sources (Variable frequency drive (VFD) motor cables, switch mode power supply conductors, fluorescent lights, squealing bearings, and other inductively coupled noise sources.
  3. Understand methods for reducing noise (e.g., shielded cables, twisted pair cables, signal isolation, differential measurements, anti-aliasing filters).

Demonstrate an understanding of the Electronic Laboratory Virtual Instrument System (ELVIS II) and ways it can be used as a laboratory electronics test measurement system. 

Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe the ELVIS prototype board and how it works in conjunction with a laptop and dedicated software to function as various laboratory test instruments
  2. Understand the ELVIS software and be able to use to make various measurements including:
  • As an oscilloscope to measure frequency and voltage in electronic circuits.
  • As a digital multimeter (DMM) to identify, test, and utilize resistors, capacitors, and inductors in the design of electronic circuits.
