LAB 1 EQUIPMENT OSCILLOSCOPE, FUNCTION GENERATOR, DC POWER SUPPLY, AND MULTIMETER Breadboard Basics, Ohm’s Law, KVL 1. INTRODUCTION In this lab, you will learn how to make measurement using the Digital Multimeter (DMM). Use the DC power supply to provide DC power to a simple circuit. You will also learn how to make measurements of time-varying signals using a digital oscilloscope. A function generator will also be introduced as a signal source. The signals from the function generator will be used for practicing with some of the front-panel functions featured on this scope. These introductory exercises will focus on the periodic signals from the generator (sinusoid, square, triangular) in order to ensure that "reliable" signals are available for practicing with the scope. 2. OBJECTIVES Introduction to Digital Multimeter (DMM) Introduction to DC Power Supply Learn how to use a digital oscilloscope to make basic signal measurements. Learn how to use a function generator Understand how to build circuits on a protoboard/breadboard After completing the laboratory studies, you should be more comfortable with using the; oscilloscope, function generator, multimeter, and DC power supply. You should develop a good understanding of the basic functional components that make up the oscilloscope, and gain an appreciation for how the digital design provides enhanced measurement
