ECE 4175 QUIZ 11-7-08 (1 of 2) High 100 SIX PROBLEMS Upper quarter 89 Open book, open notes Median 78 Lower quarter 63 Low 45 1. Consider the circuit of Part A of the Design Project and the effect of the use of the 22 k S pullup resistor between the interrupt pins of the two microcontrollers. The 690_DP.c code causes this line to be pulled [20%] low for just two microseconds for each press of the pushbutton connected to the 690. (Greg Koo and David Richardson had correct answers for all four parts of this problem.) a. W hat is the average current, expressed in microamperes, in this 22 k S resistor over the loop time when the CPU detects a newly pressed pushbutton? Show all work clearly. Instantaneous current = 3V/22k S = 136 : A Loop current = 16 ms = 16000 : s Average current = (2/16000)x136 = 0.017 : A b. If Mr. Fastfingers were to press and release the pushbutton repeatedly so as to cause the 690_DP.c code to produce interrupt pulses at the maximum rate, then what would this rate be? Press and release the pushbutton so that every other looptime the 690 sees a newly pressed key; that is, every 32ms. So this rate is 1000ms/32ms = 31 presses/sec, c. W hat is the average current in this 22 k S resistor while this is going on? Since the pulse occurs every other loop time, the answer here is ½ the answer in part a, i.e., 0.0085 : A d. On the other hand, if Mr. Slowfingers presses and releases the pushbutton repeatedly so as to cause the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
