GTA orientation - expectations of GTAs, FAQ's, etc

Documentation:

  • A&D Board - Information, Manual, Test procedure, wiring tips, bug fixes
  • Velleman Scope care and use, scope software installation
  • MY64 Digital Multimeter (DMM) use, maintenance, battery and fuse changing:
     
  • LTspice IV - Linear Technologies download site with tutorials
     
  • Electronic Parts Kit Check List
    • ECE Electronic Lab parts kits are distributed at the beginning of each semester for ECE 2054 and ECE 2074
    • This kit contains the diodes, transistors, ICs, LEDs, capacitors, inductors, resistors, and wires needed to build the experiments.
  • Data Sheets - for components in the Electronis Parts Kit.
  • Transformer test - how to test your green or red audio transformer (not included in current kits)


Lab-in-a-Box Kit Requirements:

For most lab materials, we have arranged for one-stop shopping from Electronix Express, at competitive prices.
Fully compatible parts from other vendors may be used. If you already own a fully compatible item, it is not necessary
to purchase another one for a particular course.

ECE 2054, ECE 2074, ECE 3074

  • Students are required to purchase or have the following Lab-in-a-Box items:

      Similar tools are acceptable.
    • LTspice - free download from Linear Technology
       
    • You do NOT need Pspice software or books! Do not purchase these items even if they are listed in the bookstore for these classes!
  • ECE 2054 and 2074 Students will receive from the ECE Dept:
    • Electronics Parts Kit with all electronic circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors ICs, etc)
    • Distribution is in the OpEL Lab (219 Whittemore) during the second week of classes.
  • ECE 3074 Students should already have:
    • Electronics Parts Kit with all electronic circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors ICs, etc)
      • Replacement kits may* be issued if you sold or lost your kit. (*If we have spare kits)
