Undergraduate Academic Catalog 2012-2013
ECET 4330 Audio Technology
The fundamentals of specifications, standards, devices, circuits and systems used in audio are studied. Acoustics, power amplifiers, preamplifiers, frequency contouring circuits, signal processors, microphones, loudspeakers and sound reinforcement systems are covered. During the first half of the term, approximately six laboratory exercises are utilized to reinforce associated lecture topics. During the second half of the term, an audio design project is completed. Students are required to research, design, analyze, and implement the audio project. Computer based simulation software (such as PSpice) and a computer-aided-testing system are used to analyze several of the lab exercises and the audio project.
