    This paper discusses the design and fabrication of MIME, a low-cost microprogrammable, general purpose computer specifically configured for use in an educational environment. In order to have utility as an instructional aid in the areas of computer control and microprogramming, such a machine must have the following high level attributes: educationally oriented human interface, educationally orien...

    A systematic procedure for curriculum design is briefly summarized, and the crucial step of content selection is then discussed in detail. The content is described in terms of the domain, principles, and problems of the discipline, and some suggestions regarding the teaching of each are made. The various reasons for curriculum revision are listed, with particular emphasis on the ways of solving th... View full abstract»

    A method of incorporating self and peer marking in an undergraduate electronics subject is described and discussed. Similar methods could probably be used in other technical subjects. Its educational benefits are: greatly improved feedback to the students, additional reinforcement, and practice at self assessment. The method described has a high degree of student acceptance, and appears to produce... View full abstract»

    At the Ecole Supérieure d'Ingénieurs en Electrotechnique et Electronique (ESIEE), students devote their entire fifth year to a real engineering project which is financially supported by an industrial firm. This experience provides an excellent simulation of an industrial environment, and thus prepares the student for his professional life. View full abstract»

    The nature of the electromagnetic fields of a helically wound coil carrying a time-varying current is examined. It is shown how simple applications of Faraday's and Ampere's laws yield the dominant field components. It is pointed out that within the coil, both magnetic and electric fields are predominantly axial and uniform. The axial electric fi'eld is many times greater than the radially depende...

    The calculation of mechanical stresses at the rotor surface is shown to be a simple procedure for the common types of electrical machine in which armature current can be represented as a rotor surface current sheet. Use of this technique can lead to a better appreciation of the mechanics of torque production in electromagnetic machines than alternative energy methods. View full abstract»

  • Introductory UART Experiments for a Microcomputer Course

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):287 - 288
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (553 KB)

    A course is briefly described which deals with microprocessor interfacing. One portion of the course covers programmable LSI interface chips. Introductory experiments are described for one of these chips, the Motorola 6850 asynchronous communications interface adapter (ACIA). The experiments allow the student to, in effect, "single-step" through the operation of the ACIA by inputting clock pulses ... View full abstract»

  • A Statistical Analysis of the Grades of B.S.E.E. Recipients

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):288 - 291
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (826 KB)

    A statistical analysis is performed on 11 course grades for over 200 B.S.E.E. students. These students graduated from the California State University, Long Beach (C.S.U.L.B.) over a four-year period. The resulting means and correlations along with certain other data provide an interesting insight into academic tendencies. Some conclusions are drawn from these tendencies as to future industrial suc... View full abstract»

    A general exact method is presented for treating feedback amplifiers. The procedure is topology independent, although it provides a simple technique for topological classification. In addition, it eliminates the necessity of calculating the loading effects of the feedback network. View full abstract»

    An outline of electromagnetic theory is presented in which extraneous concepts (principally the permittivity and permeability of free space) are eliminated and all analogies between electrostatics and magnetostatics are heightened. The result is a simplified representation in which the introduction of D and H is logically deferred until materials are introduced, with the need for their introductio... View full abstract»
