Undergraduate Course: Electronics Project Laboratory 2C (ELEE08018)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The students will design and analyse the analogue and digital
sampling components for a speech digitiser circuit.
The fundamental characteristics of the digital signal abstraction
are investigated along with the properties of basic logic
function gates. Using a progressive modular approach, simple
arithmetic and control function hardware is constructed and its
performance measured and analysed.
The laboratory lays the foundation for measurement, analysis
and interpretation of the performance of digital systems
studied in later years. The content is directly linked to the
course Digital System Design 2.
