1 Worcester Polytechnic Institute Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE 2011 —Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering Sound Activated Light: "The Clapper" Introduction Read this entire document. Follow every instruction during your laboratory session. Doing so is the most effective way to ensure that you will complete the project in the allotted time. Note: In this lab you will not only build the circuit shown in Figure 1, but also get practice in thinking of a complicated system in terms of functional blocks. The boundaries between blocks are shown with dotted lines in Figure 1. DO NOT build the circuit of Figure 1 all at once! You will build the circuit one block at a time, verifying the intended functionality of each block before moving to the next block in the system.

2 Figure 1. Remember : You must document the entire experiment in your laboratory notes. The notes should include: The date and time . Your partner’s name . The identity number of the laboratory bench at which you are working. The schematic diagrams of any circuits that you build. This is very important because, without them, your notes will make no sense to you at a later time. Note: Since the schematic of this circuit is somewhat complicated, a separate sheet with a full-page schematic version of Figure 1 is at the end of this lab writeup. To make your life easier: rather than redraw this circuit in your lab notes, just staple your schematic to your lab notes. Use your note- taking time to record waveforms at the boundaries between blocks in the circuit. The results of any measurements made in the laboratory. These should be neatly tabulated or graphed—if appropriate— and labeled. Observations that are requested in the laboratory instruction. Your own thoughts about the experiment. Do the results make sense? Are they surprising in any way? Would you do anything differently if you had the opportunity to repeat the laboratory project? Keep these remarks brief and to the point. The signature of the laboratory TA or Tutor verifying the proper operation of the project.

3 These notes will be handed in to the laboratory TA at the end of the session. Remember that your grade for this laboratory project will be based on both your notes and your prelab work.

4 Thinking in Blocks Note: In this lab you will not only build the circuit shown in Figure 1, but also get practice in thinking of a complicated system in terms of functional blocks. The boundaries between blocks are shown with dotted lines in Figure 1. DO NOT build the circuit of Figure 1 all at once! You will build the circuit one block at a time, verifying the intended functionality of each block before moving to the next block in the system. The process you will repeat for each block is as follows:
