Unformatted text preview: 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. Everyof about ....
