Fourier Analysis and the Nyquist Rate
Issues in measuring a time dependent signal:
1)How fast do you have to measure data points ?(sampling rate)
2)What is the effect of measuring for a finite time? (windowing)
ADC Speed
At what rate can a signal be digit
LabView and DC electronics
Recall or re-visit some concepts from resistor networks
Introduce the basics of LabView.
DC Electronics
Voltages and currents are independent of time.
At DC, resistors and diodes are the only really interesting components
