University of Wisconsin Madison Nonlinear Electronic Circuits Laboratory (E C E 308) Syllabus Course Learning Outcomes Course Learning Outcome 1 The student will learn how to create an ideal rectifier using op-amps and diodes. 2 The will learn the limits in frequency and amplitude of these techniques. The classic 555 timer IC is studied and several multi-vibrators are designed and explored. 3 The student will deliver “DC” power to a load using a typical linear regulator as well as a PWM regulator. 4 The student will gain an understanding of the efficiencies of these two power supply methods as well as when you can reasonable use each one. 5 A simple D/A converter is studied 6 The student will learn how digital bits can be used to generate an analog voltage. 7 The student will learn how to put the D/A converter into a feedback loop to create an A/D converter. 8 Students will investigate square wave and triangle wave generation. 9 They will learn how the individual components will determine the frequency and duty cycle of the generators. 10 Students will investigate how logic gates are built today. 11 They will learn how the device characteristics used to build the gates determine how the analog voltage levels translate to 0 and 1 logic levels.
