Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the availability of Version 8.0 of its Educator's Corner CD-ROM.
The CD contains information on more than 100 ready-made teaching topics, including modulation, phase shift, RF, filters, distortion, amplifier characterization, basic measurements, digital basics and physical measurements. Educators will appreciate the downloadable lab procedures and customizable experiments that can be tailored to fit specific class requirements.
The CD's pre-written lab exercises are appropriate for undergraduate engineering students. All of the experiments have been submitted by leading engineering educators from around the world. The experiments are organized by academic discipline, such as applied math, communications and signal processing, and products, such as function and arbitrary waveform generators, oscilloscopes and digital multimeters.
"Educators are squeezed for time and developing new lab exercises from scratch seldom makes it to the top of their priority list," said Vincent Loke, Education Program Manager for Agilent Technologies. "We've put together a time-saving solution of pre-written labs with java animations, which we believe will enrich the student's learning experience."
To ensure the development of new experiments and spark creativity, Agilent is announcing a new program called Give One, Get a Hundred. As part of the program, every person submitting a new experiment will receive the latest compilation CD and will have a chance to win an Agilent U1253A handheld multimeter or an Agilent DSO1012A oscilloscope.
Program details and country-specific restrictions are listed on the Give One, Get a Hundred web site. To obtain a copy of the Educator's Corner CD, posters, screen savers and other materials, go to www.agilent.com/find/EducatorsCorner, registration is required.
