Electronic Circuits Lab

The Electronic Circuits Lab is a series of breadboard stations where students build various electronic circuits to study the theory behind the fundamental building blocks of electronic systems, such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, etc. This lab is introduced early in the programs that utilize it and is meant to help cement certain materials covered in the electric fundamental courses. Other labs, such as the Digital & Analog Electronics Lab build from the skills learned in this lab so that students can build more complex digital and analog electronic circuits.

Lab Objective

The labs objective is to familiarize students with the basic components of electronic circuits. Components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, op-amps and others can be arranged in a series of parallel and serial configurations to produce specific electrical outputs. Something as basic as a light switch in your room to something a bit more complex like a radio are all different forms of electronic circuits. Therefore, the study of electronic circuits extends to virtually any field that involves designing, installing and/or troubleshooting electrical devices.
