ANALOG ELECTRONICS LABORATORY ESE 314 (Fall 2009) Prof. S. E. Sussman-Fort Light Engineering 257 Tel. 632-8419 Office Hours: Tuesdays 10 am-12 noon; Thursdays 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm I. Introduction ESE 314 is an introductory level laboratory course in analog electronics. The experiments deal with practical networks that are commonly used in analog signal processing circuits and systems such as filters, power supplies, amplifiers, receivers, and transmitters. ESE 314 expands upon the ideas of ESE 372 as a basis for learning new techniques to design, evaluate, and test linear and nonlinear analog circuits. ESE 314 includes a theoretical component that is explained in the lecture and is put into practice in the lab. The experiments are allotted one or two three-hour sessions for completion and include a variety of interesting applications. Wherever feasible, the student is required to design the various circuits under study. Ample guidance for the design will be provided in the lectures accompanying the lab sessions, and attendance at the lectures is essential for deriving maximum benefit from the course. ESE 314 is an exciting class that will afford the student a solid introductory background in analog circuit design, and most certainly will prepare him or her for the more advanced analog and sampled-data applications of ESE 324. Those students who have taken elementary digital design courses will grow to appreciate the more subtle and nuanced methodologies of analog design. II. Laboratory Manual and Parts Kit The laboratory manual required for this course is Laboratory Experiments in Modern Analog Electronics (Vol. I) by S. E. Sussman-Fort (2008). The sole distributor for the manual is Stony Books ( ), the bookstore across the street from the railroad station in Stony Brook, on Route 25A. It is intended that the manual serve also as a workbook into which students can write notes for personal reference with regard to the experiments. The manual will be needed as a reference for the midterm and final exams. We strongly recommend obtaining a reference book on the use of the computer program PSpice. One such text is OrCAD PSpice for Windows Vols. 1 and 2 by Goody (Prentice Hall 2000 or later) which can be ordered at Stony Books. Note that PSpice is loaded on the PCs located in the CAD Laboratory (175 Light Engineering); a free student version for your own PC is also available directly from Orcad by mail or from their web site. Inexpensive SPICE programs are also available from other vendors (, Unlike Pspice’s student version, these programs come with usable documentation and many more models. A parts kit is required to build the circuits to be analyzed in the laboratory. Each duly registered ESE 314 student is entitled to one such parts kit. The kits will be distributed in the lab starting today. It is strongly advised that students get their kits well before the first lab so that they may become acquainted
