    This paper describes a project in which undergraduates construct a small microcomputer system and a supporting terminal monitor program. The project provides an introduction to the operation of microcomputer hardware, the relationship between hardware and software, and the debugging of the hardware/software system. The paper also presents a sequence of experiments which guides the student through ... View full abstract»

    A general engineering laboratory course featuring microcomputer interfacing for data acquisition, control, and automation is described. This course, available to all junior engineering students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, was developed and run for 220 students in the Spring semester of 1984. The goals of the course were to: 1) provide experience in engineering problem solving and design; ... View full abstract»

  • A 16-Bit Microcomputer for Audio Bandwidth Digital Filtering

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):76 - 78

    Small microcomputers using 8-bit machines have been used in teaching digital filtering and discrete-time control. These systems have two major limitations: 1) bandwidth limited to approximately 125 Hz for fourth-order algorithms, and 2) limited precision for representing the coefficients in the algorithm. This paper describes the development and application of a high-speed 16-bit machine which lar... View full abstract»

  • A Spiral-Sequenced Guided Design Course in Electronic Communication Systems

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):79 - 84
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2070 KB)

    An introductory communications systems course was designed and implemented as a fivefold, iterated guided design learning experience with the introduction of new technical material in each module. The overall plan approximated the Land transformation theory model by having a gradual increase in both content and problem solving process learning during the 15-week semester. The modules featured a sa... View full abstract»

  • Design as a Central Component in Regular Lecture Courses-Incentives and Disincentives

    The engineering professions, through their professional societies and through ABET, have required for some years that a substantial fraction of the engineering curriculum be devoted to design. While we have no hesitation in supporting that objective, we believe that very real obstacles impede the greater use of design problems in engineering education. Unless these obstacles are recognized and dea... View full abstract»

    Miller's theorem is an important analysis tool. Its presentation in many introductory electronic circuits texts often leads to student misunderstandings with regard to its applicability. An alternative presentation that may improve students' understanding is suggested. View full abstract»

  • Oliver Heaviside, Fractional Operators, and the Age of the Earth

    Oliver Heaviside is today usually remembered by technologists as an eccentric electrical engineer who once had something to do with the ionosphere. Sometimes it is even recalled he had a curious method (called the "operational calculus") for doing his mathematics, and somehow applied it in a strange and mysterious manner to difficult problems. One of these problems was that of calculating the age ... View full abstract»

    Short courses, which are taught intensively by the American Vacuum Society (AVS) for one, two, or five days, represent the most important media for disseminating new educational material on the nature, maintenance, and utilization of the vacuum environment. The development of the AVS course offerings is traced from offering one course to 80 attendees in 1969 to an availability of 38 courses and ov... View full abstract»

    The role of cognitive development, as measured by Piaget-type questionnaire scores, in the prediction of freshman engineering academic achievement is discussed. It is pointed out that, since cognitive development is a relevant students' attribute in performance in the university, more attention should be paid by university teachers in selecting classroom activities and course content appropriate t...
