Experiment 2: Electronic Test Equipment 1 Objective This lab experiment will help you become familiar with the equipments you will be using. Learning to use the equipments now will spare you some headaches later. 2 Materials You will also need the components listed in Table 1. Note: Be sure to answer the questions on the report as you proceed through this lab. The report questions are labeled according to the sections in the experiment. Component Quantity 20 kΩ resistor 1 10 kΩ resistor 1 100 Ω resistor 1 0 . 01 μ F capacitor 1 1N4148 diode 1 Table 1: Components used in this lab 3 Procedure You can generally trust measurement equipments (like the digital multimeter and oscilloscope) to be more accurate than the output readings on generators (like the DC power supply and function generator). Several of these lab exercises involve measuring the output error on the generators using the digital multimeter (DMM) or oscilloscope. You will also try some basic circuit measurements. When performing measurements or using multiple sources, be sure ground terminals are connected ap- propriately. Usually, you will create one ground node in your circuit and connect all device grounds to that node. 3.1 DC Measurements (DMM and DC Power Supply) 1. For the +6 V output terminal, set the DC power supply to read +5 V on the display. Then, measure the output with the digital multimeter (DMM). What is the percent error between the +5 V setting and the actual output value? Now, record the errors for the following settings: +1 V, +5 V, and +9 V. For the ±rst two settings, +1 V and +5 V, use the +6 V output terminal. Use the +25 V output terminal for the +9 V setting. 2. On your breadboard, build the circuit shown in Figure 1. Use the ideal values given in the diagram
