A A 320
Hands-on laboratory experience for understanding the design and function of electronic circuits and instrumentation utilized in aerospace engineering. Topics include Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws, DC and AC circuits, passive and active components, op-amps and comparators, sensors, signal conditioning, electromechanical systems and actuators, digital systems, and data acquistion. Offered: A.
This course is intended to give Aeronautics and Astronautics majors both analytical and practice-oriented tools for understanding electronic circuits for aerospace engineering. Topics covered include Ohm's law, Kirchoff's Laws, DC and AC circuits, op-amps, digital circuits, and data acquisition. Specific systems for structure and flow measurements, e.g., strain gages, pressure and temperature sensors, and A-D and D-A converters, will be used to demonstrate the applications of the electronics tools.
