The experiments in this Locktronics solution are designed for the more advanced students of electronics who need to understand the theory and practice of a wide range of electronic components and circuits, from basic diode circuits through to feedback and oscillator design.
Learning objectives include:
- Semiconductor devices: diodes, zener diodes, transistors, photodiodes, thyristor, voltage regulator, operational amplifiers. Semiconductor circuits: Full and half wave rectifiers, transistors as switches and amplifiers
- Amplifiers: characteristics, power amplifiers (A, B, AB), inverting, non-inverting, tuned, integrator, differentiator, comparator, Schmitt, filters (high pass, low pass, band pass, notch)
- Amplifiers with feedback
- Oscillators: Wien bridge, twin T, RC ladder, LC copuled, crystal
