EE 101A / Winter 2010 Optional Lab #0 Open Lab (Packard 064, Wed 1/6 and Thur 1/7, 7pm-9pm) Page 1 of 3 EE101A - LABORATORY FAMILIARIZATION OBJECTIVES To provide an introduction to the electronics laboratory environment and test equipment. The instruments available in the laboratory are common commercial instruments. As such, they are designed for rugged use but could be damaged if they are abused. You should not whack them or drop them on the floor. Do feel free to turn the knobs to “see what happens”. Do NOT make ANY marks on the instruments. 1. Resistor Following is extracted from Hambley.

Digital Multimeter At your bench you have a digital multimeter ( DMM ) that can measure current (Ammeter), voltage (Voltmeter) and resistance (Ohmmeter). Be aware that the DMM has two ports for the high (anode) end of the meter (one for Amp, and the other for Volt and Ohm). 1. An AMMETER is used to measure the current through a device. The Ammeter is connected in series with the device. An ideal Ammeter has zero resistance and does not introduce a voltage drop or disturb the circuit when it is inserted. A real Ammeter has a small resistance. 2. A
