    Battery and resistance

    Hi every one, I placed a multimeter probe across the terminals of a 1.5 v alkaline battery and saw 2 M Ohms, I did the same across a mV power supply at 1.5 volts and got little below 1.5 K ohms. I dont understand what makes them have diffrent resistance, and exactly why? I did this because I...

    Voltage meter load

    Yes two leads, when both are connected i see a rise in sensor reading from the analyzer, and when i take both leads off the reading drops. i can recreate this with only the ground lead. i have selected between 10M and >10G ohms input resistance on the meter, both with same results. it feels as...

    Voltage meter load

    Hi every one, I have a HP 34401a meter that is causing some issues with a high impedance sensor input. when I place only the ground wire ( black ) to the input circuit ground, the sensor reading jumps quiet dramatically, this does not happen if i place only the Red wire. I have tried...

    16 bit sigma delta ADC question

    I just did some tests on the device and recorded the ADC values and PPM outputs, it really shows the averaging effects talked about previously.

    16 bit sigma delta ADC question

    I am not the designer, so i cant change any thing. it was designed initially for larger input, but specs changed and it was hurried for the uA sensors, so I have to make sure it works. so far it is very unstable and i want to pin the cause of it, from my knowledge so far it seems the 16 bit just...

    16 bit sigma delta ADC question

    Thanks for the reply, is the 16 bit in the title not indicating the steps of the quantizer? i saw no mentioning of these calculations in the data sheets. can you elaborate why the / 32 and /Sqrt(4) ?

    16 bit sigma delta ADC question

    Hi every one, I am examining a prototype device that is designed to analyse current from an electrochemical O2 sensor (current source), The sensor will output 1.124 uV per PPM (cross 47 ohms @0.023 uA), and has acuracy of +- 2 PPM, with max 1000 PPM. it ueses 16 bit Sigma Delta ADC with...

    RC circuit, discharge with digital signal from FPGA

    Thank you for reply, There are no limitations on external circuits, however if i don't have to then i wont, i will explore those options and post an update soon. thanks

    RC circuit, discharge with digital signal from FPGA

    Hi all, my task is to measure the charge time of an RC circuit with a counter using FPGA, once the cap is charged, i must discharge it again for next input. Idea is to discharge it with a signal from FPGA, but what sort of circuit would allow this without discharging the cap prematurely...

    Loving a subject I knew the least.

    happened to me last semester, my favourite subject is the one I know and have practiced over and over in, which means towards the end of the semester when exam prep starts, I get pretty tired of looking at the same problem and neglect studying it, because I felt confident with them at some...

    Laplace transform,partial fraction problem

    we spent last semester doing just that, I am only studying ahead so I have yet to find out why myself. i have heard it is important for EE students, which is what I am.

    Laplace transform,partial fraction problem

    I dont see how this came about. can you elaborate?

    Laplace transform,partial fraction problem

    This is more of a pre calc question but it dose however come from diff eqs, just in case I have made fundamental mistakes, i have posted it here. I have been studying this topic for few days by myself, never had any problems with algebra until here. really appreciate all of your help...

    Mechatronic engineering

    I am just about to complete first year mechatronics, love every thing so far. but i am starting to have some doubts about this course as I talk to more people about it, some lectures suggest that this course is very broad and dose not really go to things in depth, at the same time being one of...

    How does alternating current produce a sine wave over time?

    start revising complex numbers ;P thats how you will understand this the best.

    BJT voltage on the emitter question

    i got this example from our lecture notes, there is one thing i dont understand, When calculating Ve, he takes Vb and minus the Voltage drop across transistor, so 2V - 0.7V and gets 1.3 V for Ve, my confusion is why did he ignore Vc? should it not be (Vc + Vb)-0.7V ,so...
