EET 221 - Linear Electronics Laboratory Standard Course Outline (Updated Fall 2004)
Catalog Data: | 221: Linear Electronics Laboratory (1 credit). Laboratory study of diodes, BJT and JFET transistors, power supplies, small and large signal amplifiers, voltage regulators. Prerequisite EET205 and concurrent: EET216. | Goals of the Course: | Linear Electronics Laboratory is a required course for sophomore students in the Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) associate degree program. The purpose of the course is to teach students how to build circuits based primarily on diodes, BJTS and FETs and how to use digital multimeters, signal generators, frequency meters and oscilloscopes to test these circuits. In addition, students must learn to write well-organized reports using a word processor. Lastly, they must learn to apply PSPICE for Windows (or similar programs) to evaluate the potential performance of these circuits with the aid of a computer. | Relationship of EET Program Outcomes: | EET 221 contributes to the following EET program outcomes: Students should be able to conduct experiments and then analyze and interpret results. (Outcome 2) Students should be able to communicate effectively orally, visually and in writing. (Outcome 5) Students should be able to apply creativity through the use of project-based work to the design of circuits, systems or processes. (Outcome 10) | Course Outcomes: | The specific course outcomes supporting the program are: Outcome 2: Students will demonstrate that theoretical device operation can be achieved in properly constructed circuits. Students will be able to construct breadboard or prototype circuits. Students will be able to use standard electronic test equipment such as oscilloscopes, function generators, digital multimeters, power supplies, and frequency counters. Students will be able to analyze a circuit and compare theoretical performance to actual performance. Outcome 5: Students will be able to present an organized written engineering analysis on electronic testing of a circuit. Outcome 10:
Using both device theoretical performance knowledge and analytical skills, students will be able to design formal test procedures that exercise and test circuit performance capabilities to demonstrate relationship to required performance. | Suggested Texts: | The following are suitable texts and/or references for this course: Berlin, Experiments in Electronic Devices, Prentice-Hall. Goody, PSPICE for Windows, A Circuit Simulation Primer, Prentice-Hall. (Reference) Boylstad & Nashelsky, Linear Electronic Devices and Circuit Theory The instructor may need to supplement any of the above with notes and handouts. | Prerequisites by Topic: | Students are expected to have the following topical knowledge upon entering the course: Basic arithmetic, algebra and trigonometry skills. An understanding of the concepts and theories of linear amplifiers The capability of using standard electronic laboratory testing equipment. | Computer Use: | Students are expected to use PSPICE for Windows (or equivalent software) to analyze electronic circuits tested in the lab, especially when calculating and presenting frequency response of amplifiers, and to use word processing software to write all reports. | Laboratory Exercises: | Suggested lab exercises listed below are from the Berlin book. Exercise numbers are indicated. (This listing is provided as only a guide to lab exercises that might be covered in this course. All may be supplemented by locally developed exercises.) Introduction to lab and review of lab policies Diode rectifier circuit & capacitor input rectifier (2 & 3) Limiter & clampers (4 & 5) Zener diode & zener regulators (7) Transistor biasing & common-emitter amplifiers (13) Common-collector & common-base amplifiers (14 & 16) Class B amplifiers (18) JFET self-biasing (21) MOSFET w/ PSPICE (22 modified) Common-source amplifier (22) Common-drain amplifier (23) Amplifier low frequency response (24) IC voltage regulator (40) Silicon controlled rectifiers (25) Final project presentations | Required Equipment: | The following is the minimum equipment required to conduct this course: DMM Dual-trace oscilloscope Signal generator Frequency counter Dual-output, variable DC power supply Breadboard and miscellaneous components Windows-based PC The following equipment is also useful: Digital scope Data acquisition system | Course Grading: | Course grading policies are left to the discretion of the individual instructor. However, a mix of informal and formal lab reports is recommended. It is also useful to consider requiring students to complete a significant final lab project. Lab reports should be required one week following completion of a lab, and informal and formal reports should be about equally balanced. Oral presentations should be required as part of some reports. A suggested grading strategy is: Formal reports - 30% Informal reports - 20% Lab work and participation - 10% Lab project – 40% | Comments & Suggestions: | The same person should teach EET 221 and EET 216. The instructor should blend calculator use and electronic simulation evaluations of circuits into laboratory reports. Students should work in teams, preferably two to a team. If used, lab projects can be assigned by the instructor, or students may select them from technical magazines. In either case, projects should begin early in the semester. Preliminary presentations of project plans should occur no later than the 6th week of classes, and all projects should conclude with a formal report and presentation. | Course Assessment: | The following may be useful methods for assessing the success of this course in achieving the intended outcomes listed above: Student completion and instructor grading of experiments from laboratory manuals. Student design and preparation of a laboratory testing procedure. | Course Coordinator: | Gerry Cano, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer, New Kensington Campus (gxc15@psu.edu) |

EG T 201 – Advanced C.A.D. Standard Course Outline (Updated: Spring 2005) Catalog Description: | EG T 201: Advanced C.A.D. (2 credits). Application of the principles of engineering graphics; preparation of working drawings; details, examples, and bill of material using CAD. Course prerequisites: EG T 101, 102, & 114 | Preface: | With respect to the four course Engineering Graphics sequence there is a broad diversity in needs and thinking from Campus to Campus. This Course Outline presumes one particular thought process and sequence but many others are perfectly acceptable: EG T 101: Sketching and Graphical Theory, i.e., Geometric Constructions, Orthographic Projection, and Dimensioning, which are required to create Working Drawings with 2D C.A.D. EG T 102: 2D Computer-Aided Drafting EG T 114: 3D Parametric Solid Modeling of Part Mode files with an emphasis at the end of the course on features which are skewed in space ( or otherwise geometrically complex ) and/or cannot be created without the use of construction points, lines and planes | Goals of the Course: | Professional parametric solid modeling software will be applied to produce complete, industry-typical and -standard working drawings, including part detail drawings and various types of assembly drawings; to implement the appropriately toleranced design of interfacing components; and to explore advanced productivity-enhancing add-in modules. Additionally, students will be introduced to the variety and relative precedence of specifications for feature tolerances and to the basic differences between form and size tolerancing. | Relationship to 2MET Program Outcomes: | Pursuant to the corresponding 2MET program outcomes, satisfactory completion of the EG T 201 course requires that students should be able to: Apply concepts of applied mathematics and science in solving technical problems (Outcome W). Demonstrate proficiencies in computer applications (Outcome X). Produce two-dimensional (2.D.) drawings and three-dimensional (3.D.) parametric solid models as a part of the applied engineering design process (Outcome Y). To matriculate and successfully complete a baccalaureate Mechanical Engineering Technology (4M.E.T.) degree program (Outcome Z). | Course Outcomes: | Using the provided computer hardware, CAD software, lectures, software demonstrations, and reference materials the student will produce acceptable calculations and CAD drawings. For example, acceptable CAD drawings will contain seven (or fewer) incorrect dimensions, seven (or fewer) incorrect line weights, one (or fewer) incorrect or misplaced drawing views, seven (or fewer) incorrectly cross-hatched parts in an assembly drawing, three (or fewer) detail omissions for purchased standard parts in an assembly drawings, or specific combinations of these types of errors. For example, tolerance stackup and other calculations will be completed to within 70% correctness and accuracy. As course outcomes students will be able to: Outcome 3: Produce drawings which include manufacturable feature tolerancing. Perform Tolerance stack-up calculations. Understand basic principles of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (G.D. & T.) Outcome 4: Produce part, drawing, and assembly mode files using 3D parametric solid modeling software. Demonstrate proficiency with the abstract concept and software functionality which is known as bi-directional associativity. Employ advanced, accurate and careful file managment, as required by 3D parametric solid modeling software. Outcome 5: Produce part detail and assembly drawings using fully associative drawing and dimensioning, assembly functionality, or both, and dimensioning to national standard ANSI Y14.5. Precisely tolerance individual part features which interact between parts and sub-assemblies. Outcome 6: .Master the complexities of 3D parametric solid modeling software. | Suggested Texts: | The following are suitable texts and/or references for this course: Graphics Concepts with SolidWorks, 2nd ed., Lueptow and Minbiole; Prentice Hall, 2004.
