EL 155 - Lab for EL 154

Credit Hours: 1

This laboratory course will provide students with hands on introduction to oscilloscope measurement of DC/AC amplitude, frequency and time; characteristics of diodes, zener diodes, bipolar and FET transistors; device application to clippers, clampers, power supplies, regulators, switching mode operation, DC biasing and small signal branching and loops; introduction to Multisim, DC bias and transient analysis.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • understand and use an oscilloscope to observe and measure electronic voltages and signals;
  • use test equipment to analyze the operation of electronic components;
  • identify various electronic devices in a circuit and determine their operational function in the circuit;
  • analyze and explain the operation of rectifiers, regulators and filters in a power supply;
  • breadboard an amplifier, measure and determine the circuit operating point, voltage gain and phase angle;
  • analyze simple transistor circuits operation, particularly small amplifiers; and
  • write a well-organized and comprehensive report of the experimental results.
