DC power supplies + V1 - I 1 + V2 - V1 = 120V*cos(60Hz·2 π t) Transformer steps down voltage from wall voltage by N. Full wave rectifier converts to DC (see lecture 7+8), with drop of 2V TO = 1.4V (V TO = 0.7V) When V2> Vout+2V TO , D2, D3 turn on, charge C When V2< -Vout-2V TO , D1, D4 turn on, charge C Otherwise, R discharges C So Vout ~ 120V/N-2V TO “ripple” set by R, C.

Amplifiers Use amplifiers to make signals bigger Ideally, treat this as a voltage- controlled voltage source with gain Av. A sense for how this might be done: Start with a voltage controlled conductance: this is a good model of: Some transistors Synapses Load with big resistor+ battery Key points: Battery voltage+ DC current needed Always have an output impedance Also, typically have a finite input impedance + - Av(V

    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.
