Bradley Department of Electrical And Computer Engineering


ECE 3254 Industrial Electronics Laboratory

Spring 2010 schedule, handouts, and notes.


NOTE: Due to budget constraints and TA availability, most 3254 Labs will run with 3 students per bench.
This will require some compromises in the "hands on" experience in the lab. The Labs are being revised;
there will now be three tasks for the lab; one person will concentrate on the circuit wiring, one person will
concentrate on operating the computer instrument controls, and one person will concentrate on recording
the data in the lab handout. These tasks will be rotated.
