Add Some SPICE to Distance and Blended Learning

Publish Date: May 24, 2012 | 2 Ratings | 5.00 out of 5 |  PDF

Overview

In this case study, we utilize the SPICE simulator NI Multisim and the graphical programming environment NI LabVIEW to build a remote lab. The student will be able to simulate a circuit, save the characteristic data as a reference and then test and measure against a real circuit to understand how real-world measurements compare to a simulation model. This real circuit is built upon a prototyping breadboard.

2. Introduction

EE students today, are being prepared for the laboratory experience by learning theory and then building on this knowledge, first through circuit simulation, and then by physically building and testing these circuits.

However, the true value of this experience is at that point of realization, when the student truly understands the difference between theory, and the real world behavior of circuits. Professors, instructors and professionals agree that the true meaning of engineering, is in that ability to design, predict and understand real world effects and apply this knowledge to innovative new projects.
