EE2231 Lab Session 3 Name 1 Assignment Complete the procedures below based on experiment 3 in the lab manual. Submit your report one week after the lab session. The lab assistant must initial each procedure as it is completed. This sheet must be submitted at the end of the lab to receive credit for any practical work. This lab will introduce you to the diode and two pieces of test equipment, the function generator and oscilloscope. Procedures Points for each task are listed as ( practical/report ). Diodes are the mechanical equivalent of a one way valve. They permit current to flow in only one direction. However, a diode does not perform its job perfectly. There are two pri- mary “drawbacks” to its operation. First, there is always a voltage across the diode terminals when it is conducting. This generally ranges from .3 V to 2.5 V depending upon the diode. A conventional PN junction diode like the ones you will use in the lab has a forward voltage of about .7 V. The second non-ideal property is a finite resistance when conducting. Every

    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.
