This supplement is intended for an introductory electrical circuits course offered in a two or four year electrical engineering technology program. It features approximately 500 problems in DC electrical circuits ranging from introductory concepts and units through resistor color code, series, parallel, series-parallel and multi-source source circuits using voltage and current sources. Coverage includes Thévenin's and Norton's Theorems, maximum power transfer, source conversions, mesh & nodal analysis and superposition. Introductory material on capacitors and inductors with RL and RC transients rounds out the collection. Problems in each section are divided into four categories: Analysis, Design, Challenge and Simulation. Answers to the odd-numbered Design and Analysis problems are given in the appendix.
This text introduces embedded controller systems using the inexpensive and widely available Arduino hardware platform and the C programming language. It is intended for students in Electrical Engineering and Electrical Engineering Technology programs at the Associate and Baccalaureate levels. Unlike many Arduino texts, this text does not rely solely on the Arduino libraries. Rather, it “gets under the hood” and directly accesses I/O ports, pins and DDR, as would be expected in a traditional college level microprocessor/microcontroller course.
The companion laboratory manual introduces embedded controller systems using the Arduino hardware platform and the C programming language. Exercises include usage of seven-segment displays, switches and analog input devices; a reaction timer; PWM; an event counter and an arbitrary waveform generator.
