PC221 Analog Electronics I Lab; Diodes


  1. Hand in
    • your schematic from the simulation
    • your IV graph and sketch from measurements
    • your IV graph and transient analysis trace from the simulation

    Comment on any similarities or differences between the various results.
    If you used CircuitLab:
    If you used another diode in the 1N400x family, where x is a digit, but you'll need to explain what the difference is between the members of the 1N400x family, and whether that should affect what you had to do in this lab.

    Did the diode operate as you expected? Explain.

  2. Submit to the instructor at next week's lab.
