Presentation Transcript

  1. Fall 2013 Welcome to Circuits Lab Take a syllabus! (On the TA desk in S385) Dr. Len Trombetta

  2. Relation to ECE 2300 • Theory vs. Practice • Reinforcing Circuit Theory Ideas • Learning Basic Skills • Prototyping • Basic Lab Equipment • Troubleshooting • Preparation for Design!!!

  3. Components of ECE 2100… • Informal Reports (6) 35% • Complete analytical work at home: Pre-Lab • Perform lab work in class • Use open lab hours to complete lab if needed • Project (formal report) 30% • Project: Methods Section 10% • Final Exam 25%

  4. ECE 2100… • The Lab • S383/S385 • LabTas • On duty when the lab is open • Assigned to a particular course (e.g., ECE 2100) • The Electronics Shop: S388 (Robert Dial; Ralph Brown) • The Equipment • Lab Kits: prototype board and components • Basic bench-top equipment • Multimeter • Oscilloscope • Function Generator

  5. Course Web Sites • Server: www.egr.uh.edu/courses/ece/ece2100 • Calendar and syllabus • Lab assignments • Formal report and Ethics assignment (not posted yet) • Class PowerPoint presentations • Blackboard: (http://elearning.uh.edu) • Grade Posting • Email

  6. Safety Considerations • Be neat; be careful; be courteous. • There are no foods or drinks allowed in the lab at any time, even if you are not consuming them.

  7. Safety: The TAs • No one is allowed to work in the lab without TA or Instructor supervision. • The TAs are in charge. Do what they say.

  8. Safety: Equipment • Do not attempt to disassemble, repair, or calibrate the instrumentation (unless instructed to do so). • Do not touch live, high-voltage circuits with both hands: put one hand behind your back.

  9. Safety: Emergencies • In case of emergency, call 911 or campus police at x 3-3333.

  10. If You Use the Open-Hours Lab • When you arrive: • Sign in with name and the lab bench. • Give your ID to the TA • While you are working: • DO NOT take equipment from another bench. • DO NOT take cables from another bench. • Broken or Missing Equipment? Fill out a form; change benches • When you are finished: • Clean up. • Sign out. • Get your ID.

  11. Lab Kits • You will get: • A breadboard (prototyping board). • A bunch of parts • Wires • Resistors • Capacitors • Op Amps • Transistors • Voltage Regulator • These will be good for: • 2100, 3155, 3456, design projects…
