PC221 Analog Electronics I Lab


  1. Print your schematic and write the voltages and currents on it.

    On the schematic, add arrows to show the direction for each current, so all of the currents can be positive.

    Print transient analysis output for one signal and sketch from scope for the same signal. Put them on the same horizontal and vertical scales so they can be compared visually.

    Include your values from the analysis, from both measurements, and from the simulation. Use different coloured pens or highlighters to make it easy to identify which value is from which source.

    Make sure to identify the AC and DC components separately.

    For AC measurements, convert any voltages necessary so that you state all of them the same way; i.e. make them all amplitude, all peak-to-peak, or all RMS. (State which one you're using.) You want to make it easy to see how closely they compare with one another.

    (Be sure to include a legend for this.)

    Show the frequency on your results, as determined by
    • frequency generator
    • oscilloscope
    • digital meter
    • value used for simulation

  2. Summarize what you learned doing the lab. I strongly recommend that you do this within 24 hours of completing the lab. You are summarizing the lab experience not the assigned readings. The summary should be:
    • in point form
    • in your lab notebook
    • maximum 2 pages.
  3. Submit your schematic and a photocopy of your summary to the lab instructor at next week's lab.
