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
So today I was reading up on signal energy and signal power for my Signal Processing class, and I came upon this conundrum that I occasionally have, I am aware of the terms Energy and Power, but what do they mean. Okay for starters, just to get this out of the way, signal energy and … Continue reading Difference between Energy and Power: Building a Simple Intuition
What comes next after you have come up with a plan of action for your big idea, how do you measure your progress?
