663-103. Electronics for Industry. (4 Credits)
Explore the principles, concepts, and basic applications of semiconductors including: diodes, Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJTs), Field Effect Transistors (FETs), and Operational Amplifiers in a practical circuit-oriented context. Become familiar with troubleshooting practices and utilize computer simulation software.
663-104. Programming for Electronics. (1 Credit)
This course provides fundamentals to the ANSI C language, emphasizing portability and processor design. Students are introduced to major language elements including fundamental data types, flow control, and standard function libraries. Focus is given to the topics of standard I/O, keywords, variable arguments functions, pointers and the C runtime library. This will allow students to program and embed microcontrollers. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency in the language.
663-105. Electronics Troubleshooting. (2 Credits)
This course is designed to provide students with the procedural knowledge needed to troubleshoot and diagnose faults in electronic circuits and systems. This includes the development and implementation of diagnostic procedures along with the troubleshooting concepts used in circuit fault analysis. De-soldering and soldering techniques will be reviewed and reinforced.
663-106. Electronic Fabrication I. (1 Credit)
This course develops skills and knowledge within electronic fabrication and repair. Instruction will be provided in the areas of wire preparation and termination; soldering/desoldering; wire routing; and the inspection, cleaning, and repair of printed circuit boards. Both through-hole and surface-mount technologies will be explored. Use of basic hand tools and measuring equipment will be addressed. Safety is emphasized throughout the course.
663-107. Electronic Fabrication II. (1 Credit)
This course is a continuation of Electronic Fabrication I and is designed to enhance fabrication and repair knowledge and skills through the completion of projects. Both through-hole and SMT technology will be incorporated. Troubleshooting techniques will be introduced.
