Introduction to the tools, skills, and principles of electrical and computer engineering. Emphasis is placed on developing an intuitive understanding while learning quantitative methods to design, test, and analyze electronics. Test and measurement tools include oscilloscopes, multimeters, and function generators. Circuit construction techniques include breadboarding and soldering as well as computer software to simulate circuits. Principles such as power, frequency, and modulation are taught through analog and digital electronics projects. Hands-on projects include an audio amplifier, crystal radio receiver, digital clock, and a microcontroller-operated robotic arm.
