ELEC 101 Electronics I: Electronics Measurements and Passive Circuits (2.5)
Credit, Degree Applicable
This course covers the construction and analysis of basic electronic circuits including capacitors and inductors. The student will learn to use the multi-meter to measure DC and AC voltages and currents in resistive series/parallel circuits and the oscilloscope to measure AC and pulsed waveforms, and phase and time delay measurements. The student will also learn the use of computer simulation software to analyze circuits.
Students in Basic Electronic program need to enroll in technical math ET 50
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Assemble resistive series, parallel and series-parallel circuits with constant voltage source.
- Outcome 2: Set up and adjust a multi-meter to measure resistance, current and voltage.
- Outcome 3: Analyze a circuit to determine voltage, current and power using theoretical calculations.
- Outcome 4: Set up an Oscilloscope and adjust it to read voltages as a function of time for DC, AC and pulsed waveforms.
- Outcome 5: Judge whether a circuit element is a capacitor, an inductor or a resistor.
- Outcome 6: Measure resistance, capacitance and inductance values.
- Outcome 7: Assemble AC circuits with resistors, capacitors and/or inductors.
- Outcome 8: Measure phase angles in AC circuits using the oscilloscope.
- Outcome 9: Construct simple electronic devices and circuits using schematics.
- Outcome 10: Formulate a test procedure using voltage, current, phase or delay measurements to assess the operation of an electronic device.
