The advent of electronics has had a profound impact on our lives and impacted nearly every product that we use either directly or indirectly. Without electronics, present day computers, cell phones, stereos, televisions, and the internet would not be possible. And of course, without computers and modern communications tools, society could not have made the huge strides in fields such as medicine, aerospace technologies, meteorology, transportation, agriculture, education, and many others. It is for these reasons that the invention of the transistor is considered as one of the most important technological advancements in history.
This is the companion laboratory manual to the OER text Semiconductor Devices: Theory and Application. Coverage begins at basic semiconductor devices (signal diodes, LEDs, Zeners, etc.) and proceeds through bipolar and field effect devices. Applications include rectifiers, clippers, clampers, AC to DC power supplies, small and large signal class A amplifiers, followers, class B amplifiers, ohmic region FET applications, etc.

A collection of instructional modules complete with assignments, intended for an "inverted" classroom format, on the subject of electricity and industrial electronics.
A technician is only as accurate as the measurement equipment they are using. If the equipment is used incorrectly or is faulty, then the measurements will be inaccurate. If the measurements are inaccurate, then the technician will draw the wrong conclusions. To avoid getting inaccurate readings, you need to handle, use, and store meters properly. When you are done using a multimeter, it should always be turned off to extend battery life.
This text covers the theory and application of discrete semiconductor devices including diodes, bipolar junction transistors, JFETs, MOSEFETs and IGBTs. It is appropriate for Associate and Bachelors degrees programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering and similar areas of study. Applications include rectifying, clipping, clamping, switching, small signal amplifiers and followers, and class A, B and D power amplifiers. A companion laboratory manual is available. The text is also available in Open Document Text (.odt) format.
