Student Reference Manual for Electronic Instrumentation Laboratories - 2nd edition

Student Reference Manual for Electronic Instrumentation Laboratories (ISBN10: 0130421820; ISBN13: 9780130421821)
ISBN13: 978-0130421821
ISBN10: 0130421820

Summary: For courses in Electrical Engineering Laboratory.

Designed to be used alone or in conjunction with a laboratory course, this text gives students a practical understanding of electronic laboratory practices and teaches them to become proficient users of electronic measuring instruments. It explains how to select instruments for various measurement applications, how to evaluate their capabilities, how to connect them, and how to operate them properly. To mee
t the growing demand on students to collect more data and perform sophisticated analysis, this revision omits discussions of outdated analog instruments in favor of the latest digital instruments.

Features
  • NEW--New and expanded examples--Presented to clarify theory.
  • NEW--Expanded problem sets.
    • Provide students with more challenging problems.
  • NEW--Equipment descriptions--Updated to reflect current usage in university laboratories.
  • NEW--Chapter 7--Dedicated to the introduction of virtual instrumentation (VI) using LabVIEW.
    • Exposes students to this valuable lab tool.
  • Accompanying student version of LabVIEW.
    • Introduces students to this important lab tool. Allows students to perform both real and simulated data acquisition and control.
  • Comprehensive coverage.
    • Allows students to purchase a single text that will serve as their reference for most engineering lab courses.
  • End-of-chapter references.
    • Encourages students to further research those topics that interest them.
  • Easy-to-understand writing style--Places considerable emphasis on basic concepts that most other texts take for granted.
    • Explains basic, but potentially challenging concepts to beginning students in a way they can understand. Allows students to explore the material in ample detail.
  • Several chapters dedicated to the most common components and quantities encountered in laboratory work--Presents practical information dealing with the construction, appearance, and uses of such items as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, relays, batteries, cables, switches, connectors, fuses, and more.
    • Gives students an appreciation of the many variations of components and their specifications.
  • Numerous exercises and examples--included on the CD.
    • Gives students opportunity to hone their skills.
