EE-332 Devices and Circuits 2 Laboratory Handbook - Revision 3, Winter 2005

The Table of Contents for the EE-332 Devices and Circuits 2 Laboratory Handbook is shown below.  Each of the eight chapters can be downloaded as a pdf document from this website, if desired.  These links are at the bottom of this page. 

Only a subset of the listed procedures are typically assigned for each experiment.  It is a good idea to list the procedures that the students are to perform well in advance of the laboratory session.
