• Please wear Kulliyyah jacket and covered
shoes – NO SLIPPER. Otherwise, you will be
asked to leave the lab.
• Power must be switched off whenever an
experiment or project is being assembled,
disassembled, or modified.
• When the experiment has been satisfactory
completed and the results approved by the
instructor, the students may disconnect the
circuit and return the components and
instruments to the locker tidily.
• Chairs are to be slid in properly.
• DO NOT WRITE anything on the table
Pre-Lab Questions and Preparation
• Please complete the pre-lab questions before each lab
– It serves as guidance for you while doing your experiment
• Read the entire experiment and research any required
theory beforehand. Many times an experiment takes
longer that one class period simply because a student
is not well prepared.
• The experiment is performed in pairs (max=3 students
per group) but the final exam is performed individually
– One group = one lab report
Lab Reports
• Reports have to be handwritten for submission.
– Writing should appear on one side of each sheet only.
– The students’ name & matric number, section number,
lab session and the lecturer’s
– Please indicate the author of each section in your report.
• This must be followed in the middle of the sheet by:
The course code
The experiment number
The title of the experiment
The date on which the student carried out the experiment.
Report format and evaluation

• Please download the PSPICE software and its tutorial from the
website into your laptop.
• One group will need only need one laptop
Preparation for PSPICE Tutorial
• Download 16.6_OrCAD_Lite_Capture&
from the any computer in the lab
– It is a zipped file, you have to extract the files into a
designated folder
– Once you have extracted, go to Disk 1 and look for
SETUP (it is an application file) to install the
Introduction to Lab Equipment
• Bread board and its connections
• Function Generator
– To create AC signals such as Sine-Wave, Triangular
Waves etc
– The user can alter its frequency and amplitude
Example of
a function
• Oscilloscope
– An equipment to show the obtained result.
– Has 2 channels
• One for input signal
• One for output signal
• DC power supply
– To provide DC supply to your circuit which you can
measure using digital multimeter
