PS 146.1: Physical Electronics, Laboratory

Course Number and Title: PS 146.1 (Physical Electronics, Laboratory)
Date Revised: Oct. 8, 2010
Number of Units: 1
Prerequisites: PS 53, PS 53.1

Course Description:
This course is the laboratory component on electronic devices and circuit theory. The laboratory aims to develop in the students the appropriate skill in the operation of electrical instrument like the multimeter, function generator, and oscilloscope through laboratory activities related to the methods of analysis of DC circuits, circuit theorems, first and second-order AC circuits, characteristics and functions of different analog electrical components and devices like resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors, and operational amplifiers.
