What you’ll learn
- Students will be able to analyze and construct basic analog and digital circuits. As well as design printed circuit boards, assemble and get them running.
- Students will be able to leverage this knowledge to build and produce electronic products completely themselves.
- Students will be able to use numerous CAD and design tools such as schematic entry, PCB layout and routing, circuit simulators, MATLAB, and more.
- Students will learn how to use basic electronics lab equipment such as oscilloscopes, power supplies, signal generators, and more.
- Students will learn hands on techniques such as circuit construction with solderless breadboards, wire wrapping, and soldering.
- A modern Windows PC (or VM) capable of running various CAD and design tools used in this course such as Altium CircuitMaker, Labcenter Proteus, Matlab, and more.
- A High School or equivalent understanding of mathematics.
- Since the course is about electronics, to get the full benefit of the course, you will need to follow along and build the circuits. Thus, access to breadboards, power supplies, tools, parts, etc.
- A lot of patience! This is a university level course with many 1 hour lectures. There’s a lot of material to cover, and we are here to learn this cold, inside and out!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in learning electronics and/or printed circuit board design.
- Programmers interested in learning about how the machines they code with actually work and the electronics inside them.
- Electrical or Computer Engineering students that would like to see what the major is all about end to end as a head start in their degree.
- Someone that is a hacker/hobbyist that has some experience with electronics, but wants to take it to the next level and obtain a much deeper understanding of electronics and circuit analysis/design.
