Introduction to basic circuit measurement techniques and laboratory equipment (DMM, analog and digital oscilloscope, power supply, function generator, Digital Logic Analyzers) including the limitations and inaccuracies inherent in any measurement device. Design, construction and performance measurement of circuits containing passive elements, digital logic circuits, transformers, diodes and operational amplifiers. In addition, simulation tools to design circuits and to analyze performance will be used extending work performed in digital logic design and circuit analysis. Knowledge of both steady state response and transient response is required for a number of experiments. Extensive analysis will be demonstrated in both laboratory books and laboratory reports. Knowledge of statistical analysis as well as other methods of analysis will be required in this class.
