Electronic Lab Instrumentation and Techniques
This is the first course in electronic lab instrumentation and techniques. It is intended to introduce the student to a variety of electronic components including a method of producing a working electronic assembly using reasonably priced commercial kits. Electrical tests on the assembly are carried out using laboratory instruments such as a DMM, oscilloscope and a power supply. The course includes a survey of electrical safety and a practical course on soldering. Workplace safety and WHMIS are also covered.
One subject credit in first semester of all ECET (Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology) programs.
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
1. Understand and apply general workplace safety practices and procedures.
2. Recognize and understand the elements of electrical safety in the workplace.
3. Take necessary precautions when using hazardous materials, applying an understanding of WHMIS practices and procedures.
4. Demonstrate knowledge of proper soldering techniques using discrete components and a printed circuit board.
5. Demonstrate knowledge of and the proper use of electrical hand tools.
6. Identify electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, light emitting diodes (LEDs), switches, etc., their related schematic symbols, identifying marks and pin-outs.
7. Explain in simple brief terms the function of electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, light emitting diodes (LEDs), switches etc.
8. Use a digital multimeter (DMM) to measure resistance, voltage and current.
9. Use the oscilloscope for basic measurements, i.e., amplitude and period (frequency).
10. Effectively set-up and use a D.C. power supply.
