due Thurs. Feb 27
Read Meyer through Sec. 5.2.3, and Sec. 5.5.
Calculate the expected ripple voltage for the half-wave rectier above when it is
driven with a 1kHz signal. Give you
due Thurs. Feb 6
Review the rst two chapters of Meyer, and Chapter 3 through Section 3.6. This
seems like a lot of material, but most of the rst two chapters should be a review
of ideas cov
Lab 2: LINEAR CIRCUIT ELEMENTS (part 2)
1) First, complete any remaining exercises from Lab 1 on RC circuits
including the low pass filter and the LC resonant circuit.
2) Think qualitatively about the LC resonant circui

Review Sec 1.5, Finish Chapter 3.
This is a problem to review your RLC circuit analysis: Qualitatively sketch the
frequency response of the circuit

Finish reading Chapter 6 in Meyer.
The goal of this assignment is for you to learn how to nd the data sheets that give
specs of electronic components like op amp
Lab 4: NONLINEAR CIRCUITS-DIODES
Diode Current vs Voltage Characteristics
The new component today is a diode. An ideal diode functions as a
one way valve for current. The symbol for a diode at the right has
the arrow pointi
Lab 5: Bipolar Junction Transistors
Transistor Current Gain
1) Get a 2N4401 transistor. Identify its leads, and
determine if it is an NPN or PNP type. In the
continuity/diode mode of your DMM, push the "range"
button to g
Lab 3: Input and Output Impedance
Thevenin Equivalent circuits
2) Thevenin's theorem tells us that any two-terminal network of
linear circuit elements (resistors, capacitors, inductors and
voltage sources) is equival
Lab 10: Digital Electronics: Sequential Logic
1) Hook up a 7474 dual D flip-flop. Clock it with the TTL output of the function generator set to a frequency
of less than 1 Hz. The S' and R' inputs should both be
Digital Electronics: Combinational Logic
For Logic Circuits:
1) 0 < V < 5 V Always. These voltages are given by the TTL output of the signal generator. Disconnect
the BNC-banana adapters from all other outputs of the si
Lab 8: Comparators and Oscillators
1) Use a 741 to build a comparator, as shown. Will this circuit
obey the op-amp golden rules? What do you expect on the
output when you drive the input with a sine wave? Try it.

Op Amp Follower
1) Set up an Op Amp follower as shown. This is very similar to the
emitter follower you built with a transistor
Lab 7: OP - AMPS II
(1) First build and check the audio amplifier you designed for your assignment this past week.
Measure the gain of your amplifier at several frequencies roughly logarithmically spaced bet
