Circuits Laboratory I (E C E 270) Syllabus
Course Learning Outcomes
    Course Learning Outcome
  • 1
    Measure voltages and currents to verify KVL and KCL, identify shorts and opens in a malfunctioning
  • 2
    Design and build an op amp voltage follower with specified gain and measure the output limiting saturating voltages, the input resistance, and the output resistance
  • 3
    Measure the capacitance of a capacitor, determine the time constant of a simple RC circuit, and design and construct a circuit with a specified time constant
  • 4
    Measure an rms voltage, measure current and voltage and explain what type of values are measured, measure average AC power dissipated by an R-L-C load, and verify that the individual magnitudes of AC currents do not sum to the measured total magnitudes for parallel loads
  • 5
    Measure the frequency response of a filter; plot a Bode Diagram; select the components for an R-C filter with a specified corner frequency, assemble the circuit, and measure the corner frequency
