This lab deals with analog circuits like rectifiers, clippers, clampers, amplifiers, oscillators etc using discrete components. It is the fundamental lab wherein students can learn design and debugging of circuits. It is a well-furnished lab with 30 CRO’s of each 50 MHz and 20 variable power supplies of 0-30V/2A and 28 numbers of function/Signal generator, 18 Digital Multi-meters, Transistors, IC’s, resistors, capacitors, inductors, DRB’s, DCB’s and DIB’s. At the same time 40 students can be accommodated in one batch. The lab easily meet the requirements of total 180 students per semester.
This laboratory explores the design, construction debugging and conduction of analog electronic circuits to investigate the performance characteristics of diodes, transistors, JFETs, MOSFET including the construction of a small audio amplifier, oscillators and filter circuits. It provides opportunity to analyze real-world problems and solutions that involve tradeoffs and the use of engineering judgment. Students learn about the basic principles of analog circuit design and operation in a practical, real-world laboratory setting. They work both with discrete components such as resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors as well as with integrated components such as amplifiers. In addition, they become familiar with the operation of basic electronic test equipment (digital multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, curve tracers, etc.).
Their applications in implementing traditional discrete circuits and their unique forms applicable to analog integrated circuits will be presented through a series of representative experiments. Students are expected to have a thorough grounding in basic circuit analysis and be familiar with how to independently organize, layout and wire basic circuits without step-by-step instructions. A working familiarity and respect for basic test equipment is also assumed.
Our perspective will emphasize experimental work and concisely summarize that work through a discursive reporting style that expresses your individual grasp and understanding.
