Laboratory Design Project

Orientation Laboratory Experiment, White Noise File, Pink Noise File - The white and pink noise files are ascii files which you will load into the lab function generator. The resulting noise that will be generated is called pseudo-random noise because it is a periodic waveform that is random within each period.

Final Exam - Your exam is to derive the equations in the paper by Steyaert, Chang, and Sansen. You are expected to work independently on the exam. If you are stuck or have any questions, you can come to me. A cover sheet will be posted to the class web page which you are to attach to the exam when you submit it. It is due at the end of the scheduled exam period for the class which is 2:20 p.m. on Friday, December 13. You will find several pencil notes that I made when I read the paper. These may or may not be correct. Please let me know if you think any of them are incorrect. When you write up your solutions, write them single sided, double spaced. You should show all steps in your derivations.
