1. Introduction The objective of this lab was to gain experience with AC signals and circuit measurements. This was accomplished by generating AC signals with a function generators and then measuring this signals with both digital and analog oscilloscopes. 2. Background Information Instek Oscilloscope The Instek Oscilloscope will measure and display voltage (on the y-axis) as it changes with time (on the x-axis). The time scale is adjusted using the TIME/DIV knob, while the voltage scale is adjusted likewise by using the VOLTS/DIV scale. The outer conductor of the BNC cable is grounded, therefore the voltage across a component is calculated by acquiring one node voltage, inverting it, and adding it to the second node’s voltage across the device. AC Signal Characteristic Peak-Peak Voltage(V pp ): MAX Voltage – MIN Voltage Equation 2.1 - V PP Peak Voltage(V p ): Amplitude, Equation 2.2 - V P Root-Mean-Squared Voltage (V RMS ): Equation 2.3 - V RMS Phase Shift: “…the ratio of the offset between (two) signals to their period” [2] Tektronix Function Generator Joshua Dean ECE 11-34 Lab Report Experiment 4
