In this video, electrical engineer Barron Stone uses a function generator to produce common waveforms such as sine waves, triangle waves, and square waves. Learn about several common signal sources and why you should not use the audio output jack from a m
- [Narrator] Many of the signals we use…in electronic circuits…come from a transducer,…which is a device that converts…from one form of energy into another.…In the realm of electronics,…transducers are used to convert…some physical phenomena into an electrical signal…which is a voltage or current…that conveys some sort of information…and to convert that electrical signal…back into another useful form of energy.…For example, right now I'm speaking into a microphone…which is a transducer that converts the energy…from the sound waves of my voice…into an electrical signal.…
And as you're listening to this video,…that electrical signal representing my voice…is being converted back into sound energy…by another type of transducer,…a speaker.…There's a huge variety of transducers…that convert different forms of energy…to and from electrical signals…and most of the circuits we build…use some form of transducer…to interface between the electrical circuit…and the physical world around it.…When designing and testing new circuits,…
