Concise, clear experiments--designed with varying levels of difficulty and to be completed in a 2-3 hour lab period. Tied directly to Sedra/Smith's 6e "learn by doing" approach.

Description

Designed to accompany Microelectronic Circuits by Adel S. Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith, Laboratory Explorations invites students to explore the realm of real-world engineering through practical, hands-on experiments.

Taking a "learn-by-doing" approach, it presents labs that focus on the development of practical engineering skills and design practices. Experiments start from concepts and hand analysis, and include simulation, measurement, and post-measurement discussion components.

A complete solutions manual is available to adopting instructors.

FEATURES

* Includes clear and concise experiments of varying levels of difficulty

* Challenging "Extra Exploration" sections follow each experiment

* Each experiment is conveniently designed to fit into a 2- or 3-hour lab period and can be completed using minimal equipment

* Also compatible with National Instrument's myDAQ, giving students the opportunity to complete assignments outside of the traditional lab environment
