Brief

procedure

In this Lab, we analyze three circuits as the following:

Figure 1 shows a simple circuit of an arbitrary waveform generator driving a

resistive load. This circuit is used to illustrate and measure the internal

resistance of an arbitrary waveform generator.

Figure 2 shows

the first-

order RC

circuit or the

simple RC

circuit.

Figure 3 shows two sections of the first-order RC circuit connected in series to

illustrate a simple technique to model computer bus systems (PCI bus, SCSI

bus, etc.).

4. Analysis, calculation and results

1. Section 7.2 (Figure 1)

Firstly, we build the circuit in Figure 1 using a 50 resistor as load. Set the

function generator to provide a square wave with amplitude 400 mV, DC

offset 0V, and frequency 100 Hz.

The amplitude from waveform generator is 400 mV, but the value we get from

the oscilloscope is 200 mV.

=>Thus, the values are not the same since there exists a resistorRs in the

circuit and it somewhat decreases the value of Vout.

Then we vary the square wave amplitudes from 400 mV to 1 V, using 100 mV

step size. This is a screenshot of the case when amplitude is 500 mV.

As we can see, the value of Vout (200mV) is not equal 500 mV for the reason

that we mentioned above.

Vin Vout

400 mV 200 mV

500 mV 248 mV

600 mV 300 mV

700 mV 349 mV

800 mV 399 mV

900 mV 452 mV

1000 mV 500 mV

After dealing with the 50 resistor, we change to 27k resistor to see if there

are any differences.

Explain: In the case R1= 27 k ohm, value of Vout=Vin (just 1% difference).

This is because the value of R1 is extremely larger than the value of internal

resistor in the generator. When using the formula in the prelab 1, when R1

>>Rs, we can see that Rs is approximately zero. Therefore, the value of Vout =

Vin and the value of Vout cannot be affected by the value of the internal

resistor of the generator.

This screenshot shows the value of Vout when changing to 27k.

Vin Vout

400 mV 400 mV

500 mV 495 mV

600 mV 594 mV

700 mV 699 mV

800 mV 798 mV

900 mV 899 mV

1000 mV 998 mV

2. Section 7.3 (Figure 2)

In this case, we build the circuit in Figure 2 using R = 10 K and C = 0.01 F.

The arbitrary waveform generator provides a square wave input as follows:

a. Frequency = 300 HZ

b. Set the Amplitude from 0 V to 5.0 V.

We measure the period T of the input signal, the time value of the 10%-point

of Vout, the time value of the 90%-point of Vout, and the time value of the

50%-point of Vout.

Max of Vout=4.95V Min of Vout=0V

Case 1: V=2V

10%-point of Vout 50%-point of Vout

Time value=10us Time value=69us

90%-point of Vout

Time value=236us

We move on the case of Vin=2.5V

10%-point of Vout 50%-point of Vout

Time value=10us Time value=68us

90%-point of Vout

Time value=236us

The last case is V=5V.

10%-point of Vout 50%-point of Vout

Time value=10us Time value=68us

90%-point of Vout

Time value=226us

The table of time vsVout.

% of Vout 2V(1.94V) 2.5V(2.4V) 5V(4.84V)

10% 10us 10us 10us

50% 69us 68us 68us

90% 236us 236us 226us

Then, we use the measurement capability of the scope to measure the rise

time of Vout, the fall time of Vout, and the two delay times tPHL and tPLH

between the input and output signals.

We use this graph to measure the above values.

Case 1: V=2V

Fall time=216usRise time=218us

tPHL=64.8us tPLH=69us

Case 2 : V=2.5V

Fall time=216us Rise time=216us

tPHL=66us tPLH=68us

Case 3: V=5V

Fall time=218us Rise time=218us

tPHL=67us tPLH=68us

Table of those times:

2V 2.5V 5V

Rise time 218us 216us 218us

Fall time 216us 216us 218us

tPLH 69us 68us 66us

tPHL 64.8us 66us 67us

We finally reach the end of figure 2 experiment. This table shows the results

after we measure the voltage and time values at 10 points on the Vout

waveform during one interval when Voutrises or falls with time.

3. Section 7.4 (Figure 3)

In this experiment, we build the circuit in Figure 3, using 2 identical resistors

R = 10 K and 2 identical capacitors C = 0.01 F.

The orange line is the square wave with amplitude 5V.

The blue line is the values of Vout.

tPLH=190us tPHL=200us

We use the cursor-a function of the oscilloscope to measure values of tPLH

and tPHL.

5. Answer the questions

Manufacturing test time and test cost considerations

Q: Given the circuit in Figure 2, ten data points per waveform were collected

in section 7.3 item 7. Should you collect more or fewer than 10 points

to extract a good estimate of the rise or fall time of the circuit (as

defined above)?

Actually, it is necessary to collect as much values as possible to get more

accurate results. However, this will take time and money to handle a

bunch of measurements like that. Therefore, instead of taking lots of

measurements, we should have the best preparation such as tools in

good condition and suitable environment. This will lead to better and

more accurate results.

Q: What is the minimum number of data points do you need to collect

to get a good estimate? Compare your minimum number of points with

other teams answers. Do they collect more or fewer points? Are their

results better than yours?

The requirement is 10 points, so we only measure 10 times. Other teams

do the same with us and our results are not quite different from each

other.

900 mV 452 mV 49.4 899 mV 0

1000 mV 500 mV 49.6 998 mV 0

Thus,

Rs=37.44

3)

When R1 = 50, the value of Vout is half of Vin .

When R1 = 27k, the value of Vout is close to Vin.

Explain: there are differences between the values of Vout in computing and

measuring. Because the condition in prelab section is ideal.However, in

reality, conductors have small resistance, generators has an identified internal

resistance, and the values of resistors are not exactly equal to the value which

we want to have (resistors values are only approximately equal). Therefore,

there are some differences between computing values and measuring values.

Reason: due to the effect of the resistance of conductors, internal resistors of

Reason: due to the effect of the resistance of conductors, internal resistors of

generator. Therefore, measuring values cannot accurately be equal to the

computing values.

Step response of cascaded RC sections

Q: From the measurements in section 7.4 item 3, are the delay times for the

cascaded circuit in Figure 3 (of 2 identical RC sections) twice as large as the

delay times for the simple RC circuit? Do the delay times scale with the

number of sections? Explain.

From prelab, the formular of time delay in simple RC circuit is:

In figure 4, when Vs=0, we have:

C//(C+R) => t=(C+C)R=2CR

Thus

However, the time delay that we measured in reality is three times larger than

delay time in section 7.3 (for example 190us vs 67us) due to some mistakes in

measurement and quality of resistors and conductors.

Q: Estimate the number of cascaded RC sections so that the propagation

delay time is about T/2 (T is the period of the input square wave). Explain

how you arrive at this estimate. How would you verify that this is a

good estimate (i.e. within 10% of the correct number of sections)? This

estimate basically is related to the longest bus line that can be driven by the

signal before there is a timing error in the system.

From the above answer, we have:

Then we choose f=300Hz

According to those values of R and C, we can have a delay time=T/2. If

the values of C and R are approximately equal to the above calculation,

the error is within 10%.
