Offers the study of analog and digital communication concepts and systems. Students begin by learning the terminology and measurements of the communications industry. The course includes analysis of AM and FM transmission and reception, data communications, and transmission lines. Emphasis is on a systems approach with block diagrams and study of the concepts within each block. The associated laboratory tests and demonstrates the lecture theory. Students investigate a chosen application further in an individual project.
This laboratory is an experimental study of operational amplifiers and linear integrated circuits as applied to comparators, amplifiers, waveform generations, signal conditioning, and regulated power supplies. Emphasis is placed on design, proper measuring techniques and documentation of results. Device characteristics and limitations will be studied. The use of manufacturer's data sheets is required. Computers are used to design, analyze and test circuits along with manual measuring techniques.
This course concentrates on the theory and application of operational amplifiers. The gain, frequency response, and impedance of inverting and non-inverting amplifiers are analyzed in detail. Different feedback circuits are studied to realize basic mathematical operations such as summing, integration and differentiation. Operational amplifier topologies are then used to design filters, oscillators, communications circuits and regulated power supplies.
The material in this course parallels and supplements the subject matter in ELET 2103. The use of appropriate electronic test equipment is emphasized, along with computer simulation, and computer aided test equipment.
Fundamentals of both the hardware and software aspects of the microcontroller. A RISC (reduced instruction set computer) microcontroller is used with an in-system programmer to create an engineering development system. Structured programming code is written in assembly language, assembled and downloaded to the controller. Switches, light emitting diodes, seven segment displays, pneumatic solenoids and motors are among the devices that will be connected to the controller.
A continuation of Circuit Theory I. The emphasis is on the electrical principles, laws, and theorems applicable to sinusoidal ac circuits. Complex number notation is used to evaluate ac circuits. Topics include ac power, resonance, polyphase circuits and transformers.
A study of solid state devices, including diodes, bipolar transistors, and field effect transistors. Includes the theory of operation, biasing, stabilization, frequency response, distortion, and gain using mathematical analysis, equivalent circuits, and computer models.
The fundamentals of prototype design, fabrication, and documentation will be covered. Major topics include: safety, sheet metal fabrication, printed circuit board design and fabrication, schematic and wiring diagram drafting and analysis, computer applications for schematic drawing and printed circuit board layout, circuit construction, troubleshooting fundamentals, soldering techniques and project parts procurement and cost analysis.
Digital Logic introduces a student to two-state logic. Logic analysis will use the binary number system and Boolean algebra. Both combinational (AND-OR) logic and sequential (flip-flop) logic are studied. Typical logic designs include 7-segment displays, adders, multiplexers, and counters. Logic designs are implemented using simulation, programmable logic devices and transistor-transistor logic.
This laboratory implements the theoretical principles of ELET 1133, Digital Logic. Students learn to build working circuits based upon design goals. Logic solutions utilize transistor-transistor logic (TTL) integrated circuits, simulation software and programmable logic devices (PLD).
