Computer Simulated Experiments for Digital Electronics Using Electronics Workbench Multisim
For courses in EWB Titles and Digital Lab. This unique and innovative laboratory manual helps students learn and understand circuit analysis concepts by using Electronic Workbench software to simulate actual laboratory experiments on a computer. Students work with circuits drawn on the computer screen and with simulated instruments that act like actual laboratory instruments. Circuits can be modified easily with on-screen editing, and analysis results provide fast, accurate feedback. "Hands-on" in approach throughout - in both interactive experiments and a series of questions about the results of each experiment - it is more cost effective, safer, and more thorough and efficient than using hardwired experiments. This lab manual can be sold for use with any DC/AC text. - 31 circuit analysis experiments provided - Involves a wide range of difficulty. - Electronics Workbench Uses - Similar to a workbench in a real laboratory environment, except that circuits are simulated on a computer and the results are obtained more quickly. - Electronics Workbench - Includes a central workspace, a parts bin, and Instruments stored on a shelf above the central workspace.
- Mouse - Used to build the circuit in the central workspace, attach simulated test instruments, and run the simulation to display the results on the instruments chosen. - Simulator - Automatically runs the proper simulation based on the particular instruments connected to the circuit. - Circuit component faults - Introduced without damaging or destroying actual lab components and allowing more extensive troubleshooting experiments to be performed. - Faulty components - Introduced in a computer simulated circuit, makes it easier for students to find the faulty components in an actual circuit. - Troubleshooting problems - Included at the end of many experiments, because the parts bin has been removed, students are forced to find the fault by making a series of circuit measurements using only the instruments provided. - Experiments (complete with a circuit diagram and parts list) - Can be used in a hardwired lab environment in addition to the computer simulations, students can compare simulated results with the hardwired circuit results in the lab. - Accompanying disk - Contains all of the circuits needed to perform the experiments on Electronics Workbench version 4.
