NI myDAQ and NI Multisim Problems for Circuits Textbook

This supplement to Circuits by Ulaby, Maharbiz, and Furse contains 40 additional homework problems designed for three-way solutions: analytical, simulation, and measurement. After solving each problem analytically, the student continues by solving the same problem through simulation with NI Multisim (included with the textbook), and then once again through physical measurement with NI myDAQ, computer-based instrumentation and circuit components. By iterating on each dimension of the problem until all three agree students “triangulate on the truth” and develop confidence in their analytical and laboratory skills.
