2. 1) PSpice Simulation Frequency Response from hw10:

2) The difference between the two frequency analysis responses is that the PSpice analysis is computer generated and is created with ideal circuit circumstances. This means that the plot from the PSpice simulation is a perfect curve while the frequency response from my RC analog circuit is not nearly a smooth curve. This could be the result of the imperfections in the circuit that I built, the quality of the sound card in my PC, or the microphone input in my PC not responding perfectly. Even still, the plots are very similar and the bandwidth is easily visible in both spectrums.

Unformatted text preview: 3) The simulated bandwidth of the circuit is measured when the output of the simulation reaches 0.7071, which is 1 divided by the square root of 2. This corresponds to a 3dB drop in the simulation which is very close to our measured value of the bandwidth of 3.4. The simulation’s value at 0.7071 was about 3.39. The reason the circuit reaches its bandwidth at high frequencies is because this circuit was a low-pass filter, meaning that most of the lower frequencies of the sound wave are passed while the higher frequencies are not all passed....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
