Unformatted text preview: L ABORATORY P OLICY AND G UIDELINES ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 20N Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences University of California, Berkeley 1 Introduction Welcome to the laboratory component of EE20N, held in 105 Cory Hall. These lab sessions are meant both to supplement and to augment material learned in lecture and discussion sections, while tying important concepts with hands-on practical applications. We will use LabVIEW as the educational vehicle of EE20N this semester, and we will devote the first few labs to exploring its concepts and features. As the semester progresses, we will slowly shift focus away from LabVIEW and on to the important theoretical foundations of the class. Eventually, we will move into the practical arena of digital signal processing, and implement solutions to real-world design problems. So, sit back and enjoy the ride! 2 Computer Accounts 1. You will be issued an instructional computer account during the first lab. You are responsible for keep- ing your account information safe , as you will only be assigned one computer account throughout the semester. 2. When you log in to a computer in 105 Cory Hall using your assigned account, you will be prompted to register. You only have to fill this out once, even though you may be prompted multiple times. 3. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del (once!) to change the password of the account to one that you will remember. 4. Your account is assigned hard drive space on the U: network drive: please save all of your work on the U: drive. When you log off and log back in, the local hard drive on the computer is cleaned out. A corollary of this is that every time you log off, all of your files stored locally are deleted. As a result, if you need your data and files to persist, please save your work on the U: drive. 3 Staff The teaching assistants for the class this semester and their contact information is given below. Each lab section will be assigned one (occasionally two) teaching assistant, who will be considered your TA for the course. As such, the TA will be your second line of defense when faced with problems in either the course material or the lab material, your study group being your first. E-mail will be your primary mode of com- munication with the course staff, whereby you can either raise short questions, or make appointments to discuss more involved problems. 1 In the last hour of every lab, another TA will join your official lab TA(s) to help check you off. There will also be lab assistants to help you as you work through the lab exercises....
