# ME3023 #2 Basic circuit design Name:

Objective:

## 1. To read and measure resistors and capacitors.

2. To understand the voltage divide rule and measure the voltage difference at a certain node point.
3. To design, build and test the passive filters (low pass/high pass/band pass…) with the passive devices
4. To know Op-amp’s pin configuration and understand the basic operation of Op-amps.
5. To understand the performance difference between the passive filters and active filters.

Overview: While analog devices have been supplanted by their digital equivalents in many applications, they are
still widely used and remain engrained in engineered devices. An analog output format is often ergonomically
superior in monitoring, as evidenced by modern car speedometer dials and dial wristwatches. Too often we qualify
a digital device by its digital readout, but internal analog circuits form the foundation for both analog and many
digital indicating systems. In fact, many of the systems that we interface with are analog and digital hybrids.
Within a signal chain, it is common to find digital and analog electrical devices being used together and so
requiring special signal conditioning. An understanding of analog device function provides insight, as well as a

## Experiments: Passive and active circuit design:

TAs will get you passive devices (resistors, capacitors) and Active devices (Operational amplifier (Op-amp))

Experiment 1. Build passive circuits and measure potential difference at each point.

Experiment 2. Build active circuits with Op-amp and measure voltage outputs.

Experiment 3. Build both passive and active filters (low pass/high pass) and compare two filters.
