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 meet 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growing demand on students to collect more data and perform sophisticated analysis, this revision omits discussions of outdated analog instruments in favor of the latest digital instruments.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.
