electronics lab (cse department,2nd year):
one thing is for sure that cse people are definately not going to think of/or do ''AND gate implementation using NOR''???
but still the department wants to give a feel of how to be "jack of all trades and master of none"....well the moto is good but enthusiasm lacks,its true that the person should know how the things around him are working,about the gates,semiconductors which are the basic building block of any electronic device...but what we do in our labs is : (EINSTEIN COULD NOT PASS THIS IS 4 YEARS....FEYNMAN WOULD HAVE DONE SUICIDE AFTER KILLING ASSISTANT OVER THEIR...)
we are given (ic 7402,say) 'NAND gate' and few wires,and the homework given to us was about the connection of wires for NAND,now our job is to insert WIRES PROPERLY by looking at the chart (which a layman can do)...and then assistant will check if (1 1 is 0....0 1 is 1.....so on),and the exam will be to do this without having your notebook,so the learning process is merely "HOW GOOD YOUR MEMORY IS!!!!!!"i am not able to conceive the theme behind such labs??a complete rant!!
teach us the magic of how to impart that NAND gate property to IC 7402(say)...teach us about the connections inside the machine about how it answers 1 1 is 0 for NAND.......we will make the machine in a week and about inserting wires,for what the assistants are!….i wont say anything about what we did in 1st year coz this post would not be enough,I passed in all subject but I am not in a state to say a word about LATHE,FOUNDARY,DUMPY LEVEL,PHONETICS……..if I was a 9 pointer,then also I would have written this????
