GRADING AND COURSE MATERIALS
Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)
  • 1
    The student will learn how to create an ideal rectifier using op-amps and diodes.
    [C001]
  • 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.
    [C002]
  • 3
    The student will deliver “DC” power to a load using a typical linear regulator as well as a PWM regulator.
    [C003]
  • 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.
    [C004]
  • 5
    A simple D/A converter is studied
    [C005]
  • 6
    The student will learn how digital bits can be used to generate an analog voltage.
    [C006]
  • 7
    The student will learn how to put the D/A converter into a feedback loop to create an A/D converter.
    [C007]
  • 8
    Students will investigate square wave and triangle wave generation.
    [C008]
  • 9
    They will learn how the individual components will determine the frequency and duty cycle of the generators.
    [C009]
  • 10
    Students will investigate how logic gates are built today.
    [C010]
  • 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.
    [C011]

ACADEMIC POLICIES
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

By enrolling in this course, each student assumes the responsibilities of an active participant in UW-Madison’s community of scholars in which everyone’s academic work and behavior are held to the highest academic integrity standards. Academic misconduct compromises the integrity of the university. Cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, and helping others commit these acts are examples of academic misconduct, which can result in disciplinary action. This includes but is not limited to failure on the assignment/course, disciplinary probation, or suspension. Substantial or repeated cases of misconduct will be forwarded to the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards for additional review. For more information, refer to https://conduct.students.wisc.edu/academic-integrity/

ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

McBurney Disability Resource Center syllabus statement: “The University of Wisconsin-Madison supports the right of all enrolled students to a full and equal educational opportunity. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Wisconsin State Statute (36.12), and UW-Madison policy (Faculty Document 1071) require that students with disabilities be reasonably accommodated in instruction and campus life. Reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities is a shared faculty and student responsibility. Students are expected to inform faculty [me] of their need for instructional accommodations by the end of the third week of the semester, or as soon as possible after a disability has been incurred or recognized. Faculty [I], will work either directly with the student [you] or in coordination with the McBurney Center to identify and provide reasonable instructional accommodations. Disability information, including instructional accommodations as part of a student's educational record, is confidential and protected under FERPA.” http://mcburney.wisc.edu/facstaffother/faculty/syllabus.php

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Institutional statement on diversity: “Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the university community. We commit ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity as inextricably linked goals.


The University of Wisconsin-Madison fulfills its public mission by creating a welcoming and inclusive community for people from every background – people who as students, faculty, and staff serve Wisconsin and the world.” https://diversity.wisc.edu/
