- Please review your notes from EE 102 and ELEC 220.
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.
- Please review complex numbers in Appendix A
of the Kamen/Heck text.
Appendix A provides a
*brief*summary of the important formulas for complex number arithmetic. You might want to consult your ELEC 220 circuits textbook (or any other book that you like) for a more thorough review of complex numbers. - Please review pages 667-670 in Appendix B of the Kamen/Heck text. These pages review vectors, matrices, and the operations of matrix addition and multiplication. Vectors and matrices are the key elements in the software package MATLAB, which is extremely useful and popular for linear systems, signal processing, and computation.
- Please work on
designing 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 try to understand the fundamental concepts.
