In order to get the basics on electronics and know how to use each component and devices to realize your various projects, we have made available resources in this course, which will help you in apprehending the various components you will need and how to use basic measuring devices like multimeters in detecting faults in your circuits.
We will begin by discussing the three components that makeup electricity. Then extensive time will be spent on how to measure the three components of electricity. During this section, two of the three components (voltage and current) will be explored. This section will cover VOM basics and allow you to become familiar with the most important and most basic piece of test equipment.
The next section on circuit diagrams will present how electronic components are symbolized on an electronic road map called a schematic or circuit diagram. Many of the symbols presented will represent new concepts for many of you and these concepts will not be fully developed before the section is covered and many will not be developed at all during the course. The intention here is to develop the fundamentals of interpreting circuit diagrams so that these illustrations of the arrangement of electronic components can be used to help with the remainder of the course. The final of the three components, resistors will be covered next.
How the three-component are related mathematically is Ohm’s Law and this fundamental law will be covered in detail. These sections make up the basic, basic material of electronics.
The topics discussed during this course are listed below.
- - Fundamental components in electronics
- - We will view how to design basic electric circuits
- - Illustration on how to use a standardized volt-ohm-meter (VOM).
- - Measuring the voltage and current for a given circuit
- - Getting to know resistors, capacitors and what they are used for in circuits
