Analog basics: A platforms Approach presents exact assurance of analog units and circuits with a platforms emphasis. Discrete linear units, operational amplifiers, and different linear built-in circuits, are all coated with much less emphasis at the person equipment, and extra dialogue on how those units are included into better circuits and systems.

A collection of spare parts (resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes, switches, ICs). In this category, you will also need extra clip leads, cables with various connectors, banana to alligator converters, heat shrink, and the like. • A capacitor and a resistor substitution box. This is a useful tool for various tests such as changing the time constant in a circuit under test. • A hair dryer and freeze spray for testing thermal effects of a circuit. • A static safe wrist strap (and static-free work station, if possible) to prevent damaging static-sensitive circuits.
AC resistance is the change in voltage divided by the change in current. SECTION 1–2 1. An analog signal takes on a continuous range of values; a digital signal represents information that has a discrete number of codes. 2. The spectrum is a line spectrum with a single line at the fundamental and other lines at the odd harmonic frequencies. See Figure 1–8(a). A N SW ER S TO TR O U B LESH O O TER ’S Q UI Z 3. The spectrum for the repetitive waveform is a line spectrum; the spectrum for the nonrepetitive waveform is a continuous spectrum.
The signal from transducers is frequently very small, requiring ampliﬁcation before being suitable for further processing. Passive transducers, such as strain gages, require a separate source of electrical power (called excitation) to perform their job. Others, such as thermocouples, are active transducers; they are self-generating devices that convert a small portion of the quantity to be measured into an electrical signal. Both passive and active transducers are often simpliﬁed to a Thevenin or Norton equivalent circuit for analysis.
