Connexions - share educational material

A place to view and share educational material made of small knowledge chunks called modules that can be organized as courses, books, reports, etc. Anyone may view or contribute.

Connexions - share educational material

Connexions is a dynamic digital educational ecosystem consisting of an educational content repository and a content management system optimized for the delivery of educational content.

A First Course in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Provides readers with a comprehensive, introductory look at the world of electrical engineering. It was originally written by Louis Scharf and Richard Behrens at the University of Colorado. This collection includes MATLAB exercises and diagrams that step readers through a broad range of topics, including phasors, circuit analysis, binary coding, and more.

Freshman Engineering Problem Solving with MATLAB
This course, originating at Arizona State University at the Polytechnic Campus, is intended to introduce freshman engineering students to problem solving using an m-file environment, such as MATLAB, LabVIEW MathScript, Octave, etc. It is designed for the novice programmer, and covers the most commonly used features of the language.

 Digital Electronics Education

Digital Electronics Education

The objective of Advanced Digital Electronics courses is to bridge basic logic gates (combinational circuits) with technical topics related to binary counter topologies (Asynchronous & Synchronous), shift registers, memory, and DSP (Digital Signal Processors) which fall under the sequential devices umbrella

Hamburg Design System - Hades Java

This is a framework for interactive simulation on OO Java. Consists of a graphical editor, the discrete-event based simulation engine(s), libraries of simulation components, a design and library browser, and tools like waveform viewer and scripting shell..

Hamburg Design System - Hades Java

Hamburg Design System - Hades Java

It is a tool for teaching basic digital systems design, and for research on system-simulation and hardware/software-cosimulation. All simulation models, signal types, and the simulation kernels can be subclassed, so that Hades can be used for other applications as well, not limited to digital electronics.

Hades applet collection.

"The current version of the Hades editor also includes a runtime flag to switch to view-mode: while all of the simulation functions and the option to change component parameters remain active, the editor disables all commands that change the circuit structure. Therefore, view-mode is ideal to let the user play with pre-defined circuits."

Vernier Software and Technology

They produces hardware and software for data collection in high school, middle school, and college science courses.

Vernier Software and Technology Balancer Project - Vernier Software and Technology

"Vernier co-founder, David Vernier, had been a high school physics and physical sciences teacher for eight years when he began programming his first Precision Timer software application. David's creativity and his passion for science education, combined with his wife Christine's business acumen, were the driving forces behind the early years of Vernier Software & Technology….."

Texas Instruments and Vernier

Shown on right is a Balancer robot that uses a Vernier Low-g Accelerometer to measure the tilt of a long beam. At the start, there are 10 gram weights on each side of the horizontal beam. As weights are added or removed, the beam unbalances and tilts.

Principles of Semiconductor Devices

The purpose of this text is to explore the internal behavior of semiconductor devices, so that we can understand the relation between the device geometry and material parameters on one hand and the resulting electrical characteristics on the other hand.

Principles of Semiconductor Devices 

Principles of Semiconductor Devices  

"The Primary Focus: The MOSFET and CMOS Integrated Circuits The Metal-Oxide-Silicon Field-Effect-Transistor (MOSFET) is the main subject of this text, since it is already the prevailing device in microprocessors and memory circuits. In addition, the MOSFET is increasingly used in areas as diverse as mainframe computers and power electronics. The MOSFET’s advantages over other types of devices are its mature fabrication technology, its successful scaling characteristics and the combination of complementary MOSFETs yielding CMOS circuits."

Some of the Topics
  • Schottky diode current
  • Metal-Semiconductor contacts
  • Electrostatic analysis of a p-n diode
  • Reverse bias breakdown
  • Optoelectronic devices
  • Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
  • Ideal transistor model
  • Power MOSFETs
