    "The course provided me with an awareness of component uses, actions, and outputs."
    ~Alton McGinty, Automation Tech

    This course introduces the theory and practical application of industrial electronic components. The emphasis is on safety, electrostatic discharge damage, and prevention. An understanding of basic electrical systems is assumed.

    You will be able to:

    • Inspect the operation of a solid state diode, both rectifier and zener types
    • Explain the properties of bipolar and unipolar solid state technologies
    • Relate the operation of the switching diodes: SCR, TRIAC, and SCS
    • Test the function of an operational amplifier
    • Recognize the properties of digital logic families
    • Determine the operation of analog, digital, and conversion electronic circuits
    • Apply safety considerations when working around electronic equipment
    • Apply electrostatic discharge considerations when working with electronic equipment and components
    • Identify schematic symbols used for electronic devices
    • Assemble electronic circuits and electronic devices (power supplies, amplifiers, and other applications)

    You will cover:

    • Diode Operation: Diode as an Electrical Switch and How It Can Be Used | Forward and Reverse Biasing | Rectifier Applications | How a Zener Diode Differs | How the Zener Diode is Used 
    • Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR)/Triac: Uses | Advantages and Disadvantages | Gate Triggering and Biasing | DIAC Use
    • Bipolar Triodes: Usage and Why
    • Operational Amplifiers: What They Do and How | Wide Variety of Uses | Two Basic Assumptions
    • Safety: Test Equipment to Protect Personnel and Electronic Devices | Need for Electrostatic Discharge Protection

    Classroom/Laboratory Exercises:

    • Use test equipment correctly, including digital multimeters, scopemeters, and function generators
    • Construct different DC power supplies (half and full wave rectifiers using center tapped transformer) using different capacitance/resistance filtering
    • Build an open instrument loop using a power supply, an Op Amp, and a bridge circuit
    • Demonstrate how electrical noise can affect the mV signal

    A hand-held/scientific calculator should be brought to class.
