ELEC 320, Fall 2006
Prof. Rich Kozick

Homework 1

Date Assigned: Wednesday, August 23, 2006
Date Due: Friday, August 25, 2006 and week of August 28

  1. Bookmark the course web page at

  2. Please review your texts and notes from ELEC 120 and ELEC 225-226. In particular, review the concepts of phasors and impedance for circuits that contain capacitors, inductors, and resistors. Also review operational amplifiers and "frequency response" of filters.

  3. Please review Sections B.1-B.3 in the Lathi text on complex numbers and sketching signals.

    In case you did not purchase the textbook yet, you can find pages 1-22 of the textbook on the course web page under Class Notes.

  4. In order to guide your review, you may want to look ahead to the Laboratory 1 assignment (see the course web site) that we will work on next week. Begin thinking about how you will design the low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass filters specified on the Laboratory 1 assignment. Note that there are many different circuits that can satisfy the design specifications. Take your time, ask plenty of questions, and strive to improve your understanding of the fundamental concepts.
Thank you.
