Developing a Sensor-Based Electronics Course With Arduinos

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The traditional electronics course administered to undergraduate physics majors is typically broken into three major topics: basic DC and AC circuits, non-linear devices (diodes, transistors, op-amps), and basic digital (TTL, ECL) circuits. While each of these topics maintains some degree of applicability, many laboratories have recently turned to using small, modular processors (Arduinos and Raspberry-pi's) to monitor and control a wide variety of physical sensors. This presentation reports on an advanced laboratory immersion at the Miami University of Ohio in which Arduinos are used in a variety of undergraduate laboratory experiments. Strategies for modernizing the electronics course at St. Norbert College to incorporate sensor-based projects using Arduinos will also be presented.
