A New Laboratory Curriculum Focused On Teaching Mixed Signal Testing Concepts Using Low Cost Test Equipment Conference Paper uri icon


  • As the density of integrated circuit technology continues to increase, many commercial devices are combining both analog and digital electronics onto a single chip. As the complexity of these chips increases, familiarity with testing mixed-signal devices is essential for the successful entry-level engineer. This paper discuss a laboratory curriculum being developed at Texas A&M University designed to introduce these concepts to students before they graduate. The curriculum emphasizes the use of standard electronics bench equipment combined with additional low-cost personal computer technology to ensure that all interested academic institutions can afford to offer these labs.
