AC, DC Coupling on the Oscilloscope: When to Use Which

From my experience, if you were to step into a college electronics lab session and ask a student "When would you set an oscilloscope channel to either AC or DC coupling" chances are you'll get something along the line, "AC coupling is for AC signals and DC coupling is for DC signals". While there is … Continue reading AC, DC Coupling on the Oscilloscope: When to Use Which

A Practical Implementation of A Two Quadrant Transconductance Analogue Multiplier

One of the circuits that I've spent an inordinate amount of time investigating this year is the Analogue Multiplier. An analogue multiplier is a circuit block which takes two analogue signals and produces an output which is proportional to their product. Analogue multipliers can be integrated as part of a larger circuit blocks to perform … Continue reading A Practical Implementation of A Two Quadrant Transconductance Analogue Multiplier

Coming up with Engineering Solutions that Matter

I had a conversation with my brother a while back where I was trying to pick his brain on how someone could figure out a problem(s) to solve using engineering techniques. My brother was a pretty solid candidate to pick since he's an engineer, (yes this is a family of engineering kids, parents sought their … Continue reading Coming up with Engineering Solutions that Matter
