1. Introduction : The purpose of this report is to detail essential procedures and background information pertaining to the performance of experiments involving: color coded resistors, Solderless breadboards, and PSPICE simulation. Cadence PSPICE Simulation The objective of this section was to gain precursory experience in the use of PSPICE software and therewith perform circuit analysis through simulation. This section also reinforced the behavior of charges within a circuit via Ohm’s Law. Resistor Color Code and Resistance Measurement The objective of this section was to strengthen the understanding of resistors, resistor tolerance, and the real-world classification of resistors. This was accomplished through the use of “The Resistor Color Code” [1] and the use of a Keithley Model 175 Digital Multimeter (DMM). Solderless Prototype Breadboard The objective of this section was to physically connect and analyze elements of a circuit without the use of solder. This was implemented by the use of a breadboard and thereby basic breadboard analysis became a significant tool. 2. Background : PSPICE PSPICE stands for Personal Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis. This program is used to simulate analog and digital circuits on a computer [2]. Resistor Color Code
