EECE-315 Prelab 1 1. On a piece of four cycle semilog paper, plot the equation y = 10 –6 e 30x for x = 0.1, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.30. 2. Bring to lab a clean piece of 4 cycle semilog paper. 3. In lab 1 you will be taking i-v measurements on a forward-biased diode using a series circuit composed of a DC voltage source, a resistor (decade box) and a diode. a. What order of magnitude of voltages (cut-in voltage) do you expect across the diode? b. Both the voltage source and the resistor can be varied. The maximum DC voltage source is about 20 V. The current through the forward-biased diode should be varied over the four decades between 1 uA and 10 mA. Within each decade, you will take data points at roughly 1, 2 and 5. This will provide the data to be more or less evenly spaced along the log scale. Determine what values of DC voltage source and resistance you will use in lab to achieve these values of current. Be aware that if you allow the resistance to go much below 2 k , you run the risk that your diode will blow.

    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.
