Lots of irons in the fire this week, but was able to wrap up a lot of projects well in advance of their due dates. EEE 350 this week short of a midterm on Monday, has been completely neglected by me. I pulled off an 80/100 on the midterm. I completely blanked of a certain type of problem. I can’t remember seeing it in the book and lecture so will need to do better and figure out how I missed so much. I had some extra credit points so all is still well and if I can pull off 100% on the remaining homework and at least a 78% on the final, an A is still in my reach. I’ll be picking 350 up again next week.
EEE 335 took us into the last part of Unit 5’s journey into the Frequency Response for Single State IC Amplifiers with the High Frequency Response of Common Gate and Source Follower Amplifiers. Five homework problems to sort through as well. Lastly, I was able to wrap up my Common Source Amplifier design lab and was able to submit that this afternoon. If my simulations were correct I exceeded the requirements so hopefully that will be good.
Next week on Thursday I plan to take my 335 Midterm 2 which will cover a lot of the amplifier topics that I’ve been studying for the past few weeks. The practice test looks pretty nasty and I definitely have a lot to do between now and Thursday to prepare. I hope I can do well enough on it. Definitely not feeling very good about it right now.
EEE 333 just keep piling on the work. I submitted my alarm clock project Thursday. I’m glad that one is done. Hopefully got it all put together correctly. I learned a lot, but it took a lot of time to debug and troubleshoot. The lectures this week revolved around Lab 5 which looks like I’ll be building a pretty complex MCU. Next week’s homework assignment looks like we’ll be starting in on some of the basic parts of it so that will be good.
I have a quiz to take on System Verilog by Saturday at 6pm for EEE 333. Hopefully that will go okay. I need to keep practicing a bit more with System Verilog. It’s got a few interesting additions such as functions, structures, and classes that remind me a bit of C++. Hopefully I can keep things straight and do okay on the quiz.
