Basic Breadboard Electronic Series (Transistors - Week 5 of 10)

The Basic Breadboard Electronics learning series is designed to train and empower anyone with an interest in electronics to be able to master the basics. We will cover component identification and properties, Ohm's Law, power, test equipment, common analog and digital circuits, sensors, motors, integrated circuits, microprocessors and modules. The theory will be limited to the scope of a weekend hobbyist and what is needed to enable you to confidently select the best component values and develop your own projects.

We are going to begin November 23rd and run every Saturday morning at the new MakerSpace until January 25th (10 consecutive weeks).
Jaycon is offering parts kits to correspond with the labs each week for $10; which are optional but highly encouraged for the 'hands-on' fun element of learning.

Please 'RSVP' by responding to this thread so we have enough materials available.
The site is complete, containing all of the material, handouts, etc

    Great class with excellent projects! I did the transistor switch during the class and the telephone circuit when I got home. I noticed that using the boost power supply I got feedback, but if I just used the two AA batteries, the amp's worked fine.

      Great info; feedback can be tricky to control!

    Got there late but picked up my parts and spent the afternoon duplicating the circuits. Thanks Jim.

    Is this series going to be run again when it completes?

      It might be a while (like a year!)... I'd recommend jumping in next Saturday; my helpers can catch you up on things as we go along. I am thinking about repeating the class in Orlando before I do it again here; I am also looking forward to seeing other classes on the Raspberry Pi, Linux, welding, lots of fun stuff.

    I assembled all of the course's components into one convenient organizer storage case
