ECE 323: Project 4, Fall 2009 Write-up Due: 12/1 1 University of Massachusetts Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE 323 Electronics I Fall 2009 Project 4: Testing Inverters Dr. Designsalot was impressed with Charlie’s skill in the electronics lab, so he asked him to help him with a problem. Dr. Designsalot could not find the inverters that he normally uses, so he had to order a different brand. He is unsure of the device characteristics for these new inverters so he asked Charlie to characterize them for him in lab.

ECE 323: Project 4, Fall 2009 Write-up Due: 12/1 2 1.0 Parameters To Measure Dr. Designsalot wants to know: Name Symbol Inverter Threshold V th Input Low Voltage V IL Input High Voltage V IH Noise Margin High NM H Noise Margin Low NM L Input Capacitance C in Max Sink Current I sink Max Source Current I source Propagation Delay t p For the three inverters in the HCF4007 IC made by connecting pins 13 with 8 and 1 with 5. 2.0 Test Design Charlie started by designing circuits to test each of the parameters. He recognized that he would need different circuit configurations to most easily measure each parameter. 2.1 DC Transfer Characteristics In order to measure V th , V IL , V IH , NM H , and NM L , Charlie would sweep the input voltage and measure the output voltage as shown in Fig. 1. He found Sedra and Smith defined each of these parameters in Section 4.10 and 10.1.2.

    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.
