The primary objective of this project was to improve the laboratory manuals and associated ancillary learning resources for the junior-level course, Engineering Electronics (EE3401), which is a required course for students in three different degree programs at Kennesaw State University – Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, and Computer Engineering.
In this project, we have developed and transformed the previous lab manuals, as well as added new learning materials. We have included detailed technical instructions within the lab manuals, revised the contents for improved readability, implemented coherent formatting across all manuals, introduced interactive links as necessary, developed and integrated pre-lab exercises, created video tutorials, LTspice simulation files and handouts, and MATLAB scripts for data analysis.In addition, we have developed laboratory datasheets for easy and convenient measurement data recording in electronic format using word files and a template for writing lab reports.
A total of 10 lab exercises with various ancillary materials (as described above) have been developed under this project:
- Using LTSpice
- Operational Amplifiers
- Differentiator, Integrator, and PWM
- Diode Characteristics
- Rectifiers & Regulators
- MOSFET Behavior
- CMOS Inverter & Amplifier
- BJT Characteristics
- BJT Amplifiers
