  • Animated analytical and partially discretized solutions to the one-dimensional magnetic diffusion equation

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):310 - 315
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (440 KB)

    An educational computer program which takes advantage of the graphical and computational capabilities of personal computers in order to help students visualize the dynamic phenomenon of magnetic diffusion is discussed. The program is capable of animating analytical and numerical steady-state solutions to a one-dimensional magnetic diffusion equation. The analytical solution is straightforwardly fo...

    A laboratory project in which the students build a simple DC1 MHz spectrum analyzer using only an oscilloscope, function generator, and a custom built-mixer/IF section is described. After assembling the spectrum analyzer, the students use it to explore the spectra of a number of different waveforms including amplitude- and frequency-modulated sine waves. The laboratory helps the students develop a... View full abstract»

    Most electrical and computer engineering students understand digital circuits and microprocessors, but fail to appreciate that a microprocessor is just a complex finite state machine. The authors present a three experiment sequence which takes the students from the design of a simple EEPROM-based finite state machine through a two-chip microsequencer to a 4-bit central processing unit (CPU) View full abstract»

  • PAT: A protocol analysis tutor

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):316 - 326
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1024 KB)

    A computer-aided learning package, PAT (protocol analysis tutor), developed as a tool to help students and novice data communications engineers learn the basic concepts of data link protocols, is described. The tool enables users to construct the frames of the HDLC (high-level data link control) standard data-link level protocol. The frames can be combined in sequence to form a call, representing ...

    The two-capacitor problem involving connecting a charged capacitor to an uncharged capacitor and accounting for the difference in energy between the initial and equilibrium states, is discussed. Heat due to electrical resistance in the connecting wires is usually cited for the energy loss. In this study, the wires are assumed to be perfectly conducting and without electrical resistance. The circui... View full abstract»

    The traditional expression that relates the transconductance (g m) to collector current in a bipolar junction transistor is based upon germanium devices. When this expression is used to estimate performance of modern silicon bipolar-junction transistors (BJTs), significant errors may result. An alternative expression for gm which is supported by experimental measurements is ... View full abstract»
