ECE 210/211 – Analog Signal Processing

Summer 2022


This lab is designed to give the student the opportunity to verify theoretical concepts introduced in lecture (such as frequency response, filtering, modulation, etc.) and to understand how these concepts relate to real-world systems. It does so by leading the student through the design of a simple AM radio receiver. In this lab, you will be using ADALM2000 learning module (M2K) as the primary equipment, which you should already receive from the department. Lab0 is  is designed for you to get familiar with the module. From lab1 to lab4, you will construct an analog circuit on the breadboard and M2K will be used as common laboratory equipments such as function generator, oscilloscope and power supply. Lab5 is a digital lab, in which you will investigate the digital signal processing of the circuit you built. Labs are mandatory. In case of absence for lab, -25 points will be given for the demo score (the lowest demo score will be dropped). Pre-labs and lab reports are due on the next day of the lab at 9:00am Champaign time on Canvas. The total lab score is determined by the summation of pre-lab (25 total), lab report (50 total) and demo score (25 total).

Lab Pre-lab and lab report deadline
Lab 1 Thursday. 7/7
Lab 2 Thursday. 7/14
Lab 3 Thursday. 7/21
Lab 4 Thursday. 7/28
Lab 5 Thursday. 8/4

Lab Policies

No instruction is given in the lab, the zoom lab is designed to help students debugging circuit, clarifying lab manual and checking demo. During the lab, you may ask questions regarding to the lab report, verify your measurements or start an individual demo with TA or UA. Note that, the last 30 minutes of the lab is reserved for checking the demo.

During the demo lab, you will be asked some questions about that lab and to show certain measurement results from your computer. (You may find the mark as Demo required in the manual indicating which part of the lab should be shown to the TA) The demo is designed to check your independent work and you may expect little difficulty if you finish your lab independently and understand the concept.

No late submissions are accepted unless 12 hours prior notice and approval.

The lowest demo score will be dropped to account for situations including but not limited to sickness, travel and etc.

Please use the lab manual as the template to deliver your work. DO NOT put your work in a blank paper. Failing to do so will deduct 5 points.

Lab Regrades

If you want to request a regrade of your lab assignment, you must do so within five days of it being graded on the Canvas. To request a regrade, explain why you think you should get more credit.
