Electronics & Instrumentation
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Goals: To explore the fundamentals of analog and digital electronics, to explore their applications in designs used in interfacing and controlling experiments, and to gain experience with common and advanced instrumentation. Content: Design, predict behavior, and build analog and digital control circuits. Circuit elements will include passive and active components including transistors; op-amps; digital logic; and interfacial components such as temperature, ADC, and DAC circuits. Emphasis will be placed on building practical circuits needed to control and measure experimental parameters. Taught: Alternate years, Spring term. Prerequisite: PHYS 1240 and MATH 3720 or co-registration. Credits: 4 credits
