AE-237 Basic Electronics
Instructor: Eddie Ciletti

Week-4 thru Week-7 homework and test schedule

Happy Weekend, y'all. 

I just created an FB Group for our class. Most of the stuff below will be there as well as here...

BELOW the AfrotechMods links is the schedule, VERY Accurate for week-4 and week-5, with a weather cast that reaches out to week-7.

NOTE:  It includes uber-importante homework LINKS and exam DATES (below the afrotechmods links)


PLEASE NOTE: The additional REGULATION homework: draw each version!!

Here are the AfrotechMods links that pertain to Power Supplies (and what we've learned so far)





LM-317 Adjustable Regulator

WEEK-4: can you believe it???

Monday 22 August

  • EXAM: Series / parallel, Resistance mid-term exam
  • hand in all related home-works EXCEPT the rectifier extravaganza
  • HOMEWORK: If you haven't yet done them three times each (for your own personal benefit) ,THREE homework assignments are due on Wednesday 24th august: Name That Rectifier, Full Wave Bridge and Regulators.
  • Rectifier review 
  • start LED disco-meter soldering kit.
  • write eddie about the class

PS: The Key is as follows

    SE = Single ended, only one power supply voltage is generated.
    BP = Bipolar (not the disorder), it means two voltages of opposite polarities are generated.
    HW = half wave, only one camel hump
    FW = Full Wave, two camel humps
    WTF = you know this one
    BR = bridge rectifier
    VD = not what you think, but would you believe Voltage Doubler?

Wednesday 24 August

WEEK-5:  Lots of pretty pix are due and one simple test...

Monday 29th August
