Lab work

The course will have a total of four labs. Three of them are practical lab assignments, where you get to practice the whole chain in a measurement system, from setting up simple electonics to analysing the performance of the system. One of the labs is a MATLAB programming exercise, with the purpose of implementing and evaluating a couple of tools for empirical model building.

All lab reports are to be submitted in Fronter. There's a subfolder in the Submission folder for each of the labs. Name your uploads as follows:

MATLAB files needed in labs 1, 2 and 3 can be found here.

If you need to refresh your MATLAB skills, have a look at the notes and text book from this course.

Old exams

This is a fairly new course, so there are not so many old exams available. Below are some exams from last year's course and from an old course with similar content.

The two text books are allowed at the exam, along with Beta, calculator, and language dictionary.
