At the Course pages you can see subjects like Signal Processing, Digital Signal Processing, Analog Microelectronics Design and Electro-Optics.
The Altera DE2 board comes with a Control Panel facility that allows a user to access various components on the board through a USB connection from a host computer.
The DE2 Control Panel can be used to change the values displayed on 7-segment displays, light up LEDs, talk to the PS/2 keyboard, read/write the SRAM, Flash Memory and SDRAM, load an image pattern to display as VGA output, load music to the memory and play music via the audio DAC.
Altera DE2 Board and Projects with Nios II CPU
"The Altera Development and Education (DE2 ) board from Terasic Technologies Inc. is a wonderful vehicle for learning about digital logic, computer organization, and FPGAs. Featuring an Altera Cyclone II FPGA, the DE2 board offers varied technology suitable for university and college laboratory use, a wide range of design projects, as well as sophisticated digital system development tools."

Electronic Educational Applets - Paul Falstad
- Math and Physics Applets - MyPhysicsLab - Physics Simulation with Java.
- Index of Circuit Examples - Demonstrates various electronic circuits.
- Digital Filters - Filters digital signals and plays the output on your speakers.
- Acoustic Interference Applet - Audio interference between your speakers.
- Waveguide Modes Applet - Electromagnetic waves in a waveguide.
- Antenna Applet - Generates antenna radiation patterns.
"This java applet is an electronic circuit simulator. When the applet starts up you will see an animated schematic of a simple LRC circuit. The green color indicates positive voltage. The gray color indicates ground. A red color indicates negative voltage. The moving yellow dots indicate current."
Its advanced simulation engine can handle both analog and digital circuits and features realtime always-on analysis. It is the perfect companion to students, hobbyists, and engineers.
Learn + Make + Teach Electronics at EveryCircuit
Build any circuit, tap play button, and watch dynamic voltage, current, and charge animations. This gives you insight into circuit operation like no equation does. While simulation is running, adjust circuit parameters with analog knob, and the circuit responds to your actions in real time.

Transistor-Based Variable Current Drive for LED Calculator
"The idea is to expand on a simple LED tester by allowing the user to plug in an LED, dial in the LED brightness, and then read information on an LCD showing the LED voltage drop, the current current, and the value of current-limiting resistor to use in a target circuit. "

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
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

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..
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.
"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."

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

Interactive Examples and Exercises - Jim Svoboda
The Interactive Exercise shown here considers a similar, but different, circuit. Like the Interactive Example, the Interactive Exercise poses a problem, then accepts and checks the user's answer. Student learning is further supported by extensive help, in the form of worked example problems, available from within the Interactive Exercise using the “Worked Example” button.
Circuit Design Lab
The Circuit Design Lab consists of several Java applets, each providing an opportunity to experiment with the design of a particular circuit:
Variations of this problem are obtained using the “New Problem” button. We can peek at the answer using the “Show Answer” button. The Interactive Example and Exercises provide hundreds of addition practice problems with countless variations, all with answers that are checked immediately by the computer.

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
