EEE100: Electronics Instruments and Measurement

Understand and test your electronics with state of the art measurement equipment available at TechShop.

In this class, you will learn how to competently use a digital oscilloscope to probe and troubleshoot circuits. You will learn how to use high resolution digital multimeters to measure things like AC and DC voltages and currents, resistance, capacitance and other critical circuit parameters. You will also learn how to set up and use DC power supplies with current limiting capability. Finally, you will use an advanced function generator and learn how to generate sine waves, square waves at varying frequencies and voltages.

Master these tools and make all of your electronics projects work!

EEE101: Soldering and Basic Electronics

Learn how to use solder and a soldering iron to make small stick figures, as well as how to solder electronic "through-hole" components for electronic printed circuit board assembly (PCBs).

In this class, you will learn basic solder and flux types, safe soldering practices, and soldering iron maintenance. You will learn to de-solder using various techniques, including a "solder sucker" tool or solder braid. In addition, you will build an LED Blinkatron 2000 - it's a simple soldering project that works!

All parts are included. Add the potentiometer to change the blink speed.

This is a fun first class for kids and adults!

EEE206: Circuit Design with EAGLE

Firmly situated in the Information Age, you are surrounded by technology. Whether it be your cell phone in your pocket or the thermostat in your house, electronic devices will almost universally contain a printed circuit board (PCB) of some kind, which allows for the interconnection of individual components.

Enter into the world of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) with this course, and learn how to harness the tools necessary to design your own custom PCB.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of EEE101: Basic Electronics

EEE321: PCB Milling with the Othermill SBU

You designed a PCB in Circuit Design with EAGLE. Now learn the process of fabricating that same design on the Othermill, a miniature desktop CNC router. Built with PCBs in mind, the Othermill will allow you to create a custom PCB incredibly rapidly, dropping your turnaround time from weeks to hours.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of EEE206: Circuit Design with EAGLE

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!
