A Full Lab Report is required (<2000 words) based on the Lab 3: low pass filter design. It should cover both practical exercise using breadboard and simulation exercise using Multisim.
The report should demonstrate a professional effort to document your work. Full Reports will have a more thorough description of the work completed and analysis of results obtained.
Some guideline for writing full reports.
