Lab 2. Signal Generation and Analysis Overview of this Session In this laboratory, you will learn: How to use a function generator to create square, triangular and sine waves. How to use an oscilloscope to measure characteristics of unknown signals. Study diode characteristics How to use a Light Emitting Diode (LED) How to rectify an AC signal using a diode (convert AC to DC) Introduction The TA will show you how to use the signal/function generator and the oscilloscope. The TA will show you (on the oscilloscope) a 1 kHz sine wave with a peak-to-peak amplitude of 2 volts with DC offset of 0 volts and then the same waveform with a DC offset of +3 volts. Signal Generation and Measurements 2.1 Connect the output of the signal generator to one of the channels of the oscilloscope using a BNC cable. 2.2 Generate a 5 kHz square wave with a 4 volts peak-to-peak amplitude with zero DC offset. Write down explicitly how you calculated the frequency and amplitude of the waveform using the oscilloscope. Is the frequency measured using the
