Its been another very busy week. This morning I took EEE 333’s second midterm. It went okay. Looking back, I think I made some silly mistakes. It was all stuff I knew or should have known, but I went through pretty quick and got answers to the problems. Had plenty of time, and then went back to change my answers and I think I was right before I changed them. Uhg, guess I’ll find out for sure in a couple of days when things get graded.
I spent the rest of the afternoon swearing at Lab 4 for EEE 333. I thought I’d get a chunk or two knocked out on it and I got the clock working in simulation, but hit a few other road blocks. For some reason really struggling with the hex displays right now. Not sure what is going on there, but hopefully I can get that working. There isn’t a lot of information on this Lab and what is there isn’t the most organized. Not much was mentioned at all regarding a frequency divider either which is frustrating. I think I have one sorted out, but without the hex displays working, I can’t tell if what I have is going to work with the onboard 50 MHz clock. I have a note into the professor so hopefully he can help sort me out.
EEE 335 has a lot going on now as well. A homework assignment was due today and I was able to get that done. We’re starting to dive much deeper into the frequency response of the various amplifiers we’re studying which adds a whole new layer of complexity. I hope I can keep things straight in there. Midterm 2 in there will land right after Easter. I am dreading it. I got started on Lab 4 earlier this week but still have much to do on that. I’m hoping that some of the work done in Lab 4 will help prepare for the midterm.
EEE 350 continues to get crazier and crazier. Only 5 homework problems due next Sunday and I think I have them all done. For weeks 9 and 10 the topics include:
- Bayes’ Rule for RVs
- Derived RVs
- Sum of RVs
- Moment Generating Functions
I’ve been going through reviewing past chapters for the second midterm that is coming up on 3/19. Initially I thinking that it was just material since the first midterm, but the professor note that went out today shows that its cumulative. He’s got a sample midterm posted and I plan to get through that early next week to hopefully highlight areas I need to do review.
