Welcome to the
SIUE's Physics
Department Electronics
web site. Our electronics laboratory has six (6) workstations
that can accommedate two (2) students each. Each workstation
has its own oscilloscope, function generator, several digital
multimeters, a 21.5" iMac computer and the Global Specialties
PB505 Analog / Digital Electronics Trainer circuit board (boards
were graciously donated by the Richard Blattner Family in May
2009).

Course
Syllabus 
Physics 318 is an introelectronics
course taught from a Physics prospective. The student will not
only learn how to properly use electronic measurement equipment,
they will also learn how the measuring equipment itself is designed.
The course starts with the basics of correctly inserting voltmeters
and ammeters into a working circuit. Next the student will construct
their own analog voltmeter using an analog ammeter! DC and AC
circuit analysis are investigated to include Complex Numerical
Analysis techniques. Midway through the course, the student gets
exposed to the single most important electronic element that
revolutionized modern electronics, the Transistor. From this
simple circuit element, the student will investigate digital
logic, data latches, binary and decimal counters, and operational
amplifiers. This in turn leads to Digital to Analog and Analog
to Digital Signal Conversions where ultimately the student has
the knowledge and technical experience to construct a Digital
Voltmeter using the most fundamental of circuit elements! A fantastic
course for Physics, engineering and science majors alike.
