Electronics 101

This class is intended to help you get started in electronics. We will focus on basic DC and switching circuits.

We will be using a book called "Getting Started in Electronics" which is sold by Radio Shack. Read the first 19 pages of the course textbook before the class.

More course info here. http://nova-labs.org/wiki/education/ele-101

    I don't know. There wasn't much interest after the first session. People said that I was much too theoretical in my lecture. =\ I'm trying to find a recipe that works for what people need and the setting.

    Hello, probably outside the frame of 101 but I was interested in seeing how to fabricate a custom circuit board from a schematic.

      You need a schematic capture program such as Eagle that can produce "gerber" files. These can be sent to any of a variety of fabrication shops who will produce them for you. I noticed some custom boards in the bins at the workshop so there's probably someone around who actually has some experience with it.

      Sang, I plan to host an instructional session to EAGLE CAD in January (going from schematic to PCB fabrication). Until then look for the Sparkfun tutorials on EAGLE and use OSHPark.com for low-quantity PCB fabrication

    I was hoping to get in more of advanced circuitry, i.e. practical and not fundamentals.

      Hi Sang, This class was meant for folks without experience with electronics (theory or hands-on). We've had other requests for workshops on advanced circuits - what topics are you interested in learning specifically? Thanks for the feedback
