Academic Instrumentation Fundamentals Badge

How to access the badge study guide
Engage in hands-on experiments to better understand filter behavior and transfer functions for active and passive analog filters by simulating and then experimenting with Multisim Live and Analog Discovery 2. Develop a working knowledge of fundamental engineering concepts, like filter slope, passband, stopband, and cut-off frequency, through interactive simulation analysis and hands-on measurement verification. This is a learning module that is part of the NI Badge Program.
