PHY 311 - Electronic Instrumentation, 3 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): PHY 131 , PHY 132  or PHY 145 , PHY 146 , or instructor’s permission
A lecture-laboratory course covering the basic principles of circuit design and analysis, use of standard modern instrumentation such as multi-meters, signal generators, and oscilloscopes. The analog part of the course moves from basic DC resistor circuits, to AC frequency filters, diodes, bipolar transistors, op-amps, and 555 oscillator circuits. The digital portion covers analog to digital conversion, boolean logic, and various digital gate and multiplexing circuits. If time permits, computer simulated analog and/or digital circuits may be studied. PHY 311 is required for all physics and pre-engineering majors, and some science teaching licensure.

Semesters Offered: PHY 311 is offered on an alternate year basis.
