The electronics laboratories take place at the end of the Michaelmas term and the beginning of the Epiphany term. The laboratories are supported by a lecture series that explains the necessary theory and components before you undertaken each lab session. This module is assessed in a practical setting as you must complete a set of tasks individually in the laboratory. Current students can access the lab scripts via Learn Ultra.
You will be given instructions on proper handling of equipment, and all the electronic signals you will be processing in these sessions will be low voltage. If needed, here are links to information on basic circuits and experimental skills:
Example circuits from this course are:
You will only attend one of two sessions, which will be your assessment for the Electronics module.
The assessment is open book, but you will be working alone. The aim is to use the skills you have acquired in the previous sessions to detect a mystery signal.
