Ps 141 : Electronics I Course Outline

Course Number: Elc 102 Lab
Title: Electronics I Laboratory
Department/Program: ECCE
School: SOSE
Semester: Second
School Year: 2006-2007 Instructor: Engr. Maria Leonora C. Guico
A. Course Description: This course is the laboratory component of Elc102: Electronics I course. It
provides hands-on activities covering electronic circuit devices and models as well as the principles of
semiconductor devices. It aims to develop a basic understanding of the characteristics of p-n diodes,
bipolar junction transistors and apply them to diode and transistor circuits.
B. Course Objectives:
1. Augment the Electronics I course lectures on electronic devices.
2. Observe the characteristics of diodes and transistors.
3. Be skilled at circuit assembly and in using different test equipment.
C. Outline: Laboratory Activities on Electronic Devices and Circuits
Laboratory Activity 1 : Diode Circuit
Laboratory Activity 2 : Diode Clippers
Laboratory Activity 3 : Half-Wave Rectifier
Laboratory Activity 4 : Full-Wave Rectifier
Laboratory Activity 5 : Transistor Junctions are Diodes/
Transistor Current Gain
Laboratory Activity 6 : Emitter Follower
Laboratory Activity 7 : Input Impedance and Output Impedance
Laboratory Activity 8 : Common Emitter Amplifier
Laboratory Activity 9 : Transistor Biasing with DC Feedback Laboratory Activity 10: Transistor Switch

J. Academic Integrity / Dishonesty
Consistent with Section 15 item 2 of the Education Act of 1982 on Students’ Responsibilities, students are
expected to uphold the academic integrity of the University, endeavor to achieve academic excellence and
abide by the rules and regulations governing their academic responsibilities and moral integrity.
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarizing, having unauthorized possession
of examinations, submitting work of another person or work previously used without informing the
instructor, or tampering with the academic work of other students. Those who are caught committing acts
of academic dishonesty automatically get a zero for that particular course work.
