Electric networks are often used for signal

This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 4 pages.

Electric networks are often used for signal processing. One physical signal that is often processed by such networks is the potential difference between two points in the network. An alternative signal could be the current carried through a branch of a network. The input signal sent to the signal processing network in this lab is produced by a signal generator. The output signal is recorded by a digital oscilloscope. The system of the breadboard with all its configurations is seen below: Questions: 2. τ RC = 33000 0.047 × 10 6 = 1.55 × 10 3 s

BME 310 Biomedical Computing LAB 1 October 5, 2015 3. f c = 1 2 π τ RC = 102.68 Hz ω = 1 τ RC = 644.75 rad s 4. When varying the frequency, we see a different output in the signal generated, sometimes the amplitude of the waves is taller, and sometimes the amplitude of the waves is shorter. Because this system is a low-pass filter, it ONLY allows frequencies below the critical frequency to pass. At frequencies above the critical frequency, we should not see a wave on the digital oscilloscope. Part 2: In this part, we take a look at how the filter signal processor handles square, triangular, or sinusoidal signals. This was done by varying the Duty Cycle for square and triangular signals. The filter signal processor contains several elements with a “memory”. Namely, the voltage across either capacitor depends on the charge of the capacitor. The presence of these “memory” elements causes the filter signal processor to act in a more complex manner than the attenuator.

    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.
