ELEC 102A Electronics II: Basic Active Analog Circuits and Measurements (2.5)
Credit, Degree Applicable
This course covers diode characteristics, DC power supplies, bipolar transistors, simple one-stage amplifiers, constant current sources, and transformers. The student will learn the intermediate use of the oscilloscope and multi-meter. There will be an emphasis on electronic projects.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Interpret transformer schematic symbols.
- Outcome 2: Differentiate between primary and secondary windings.
- Outcome 3: Calculate voltage ratios from turns-ratio values.
- Outcome 4: Compare and contrast step-up, step-down and isolation transformers.
- Outcome 5: Compute turns-ratios based on voltage ratio measurements made with an oscilloscope.
- Outcome 6: Measure the characteristics of various diodes.
- Outcome 7: Construct a half wave rectified AC signal.
- Outcome 8: Measure the output of a half wave rectified AC signal.
- Outcome 9: Construct a full wave rectified AC signal filtered with an electrolytic capacitor.
- Outcome 10: Measure the output of a full wave rectified AC signal filtered with an electrolytic capacitor.
- Outcome 11: Relate the output of a full wave rectified AC signal filtered with an electrolytic capacitor to calculated theoretical values.
- Outcome 12: Construct a fully regulated DC power supply.
- Outcome 13: Formulate a test procedure to evaluate the performance of a fully regulated DC power supply.
- Outcome 14: Calculate the loading characteristics of a regulated power supply.
- Outcome 15: Formulate a test procedure to verify the theoretical loading characteristics of a regulated power supply.
- Outcome 16: Measure the perfonnance of the DC power supply in line ""L"" above.
