About

Overview

This brief paperbound supplement provides 16 hands-on laboratory experiments that students can perform using MATLAB® in lab sections that accompany lecture courses in Linear Systems or DSP. The 16 experiments are grouped in four main topic areas: sampling and digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion; the discrete-time Fourier transform; gain and phase-shift studies of digital filters; and analog-to-digital (A/D) quantization. (See TOC below for a listing of specific lab experiments.) The goal of these experiments is to enable students to understand the full physical significance of key concepts through a deeper understanding of the underlying mathematical formulas - not to teach MATLAB®. In each experiment, students enter problem parameter values, plot the results using MATLAB®'s powerful plotting functions, and then respond to questions in the manual that require them to analyze and interpret these results. The experiments challenge students to approach the study of these topics in the role of an experimental investigator; students are required to define the quantitative values and size properties of each design criterion in a problem. As a result, students develop an appreciation of the physical meaning of the derived results, their theoretical and physical implications, and the use of the scientific method.

Features and Benefits

  • The lab manual is unique in the marketplace: there is no competing product that meets the general ABET requirements for increased lab, design and technology components for undergraduates, for the Linear Systems course in EE.
  • Students learn basic concepts of linear systems through hands-on, experimental studies that teach how theoretical and experimental studies complement each other.
  • Printed manual contains 16 lab experiments, with MATLAB® screen illustrations explaining how to run each supporting MATLAB® lab program, and questions guiding student exploration.
  • Labs are designed to promote original thinking by enabling students to analyze physical situations simulated on the computer in the MATLAB® Version 5 computational and graphical environment. Students are encouraged to re-examine basic concepts (often taught without adequate background or deliberation).
  • Labs are easily adapted to allow changes in the requirements from one term to the next.
  • Compiled MATLAB® executable files (.P code) for all 16 experiments may be downloaded from the Brooks/Cole Bookware Companion Series� Resource Center Web site.
