Description

Welcome to this course.

Topics that we will be discussed during the Introduction to Electronic Components Course are listed here in a brief outline.  

  • The Components of Electricity

  • Volt-Ohm-Meter Basics (Measuring Electricity)

  • Circuit Diagrams Basics (Electronic Roadmaps)

  • The Resistor

  • Ohm’s Law

  • The Capacitor

  • The Inductor

  • The Diode

  • The Transistor (Electronic Valves)

Things You Should Know before we start

  • The topics up to and including Ohm’s Law are what we will start with.  

  • The remaining topics cover additional fundamental components of basic electronics.  

  • The course will be in platform discussion, guide practices, and open question format as the material dictates.  

  • The course uses a standardized volt-ohm-meter (VOM) for illustration.

Quick Summary of things that we will discuss through this course

  • In this Introduction to Electronic Components Course, We will begin by discussing the three components that make up electricity. 

  • Next will spend more extensive time on how to measure the three components of electricity.  During this section, we will explore two of the three components (voltage and current).

  • This section will cover VOM basics and allow you to become familiar with the most important and most basic piece of test equipment.  

  • At the next section, Circuit diagrams section, you will learn how to use electronic components symbols on an electronic road map called a schematic or circuit diagram.

  • Many of the symbols will represent new concepts for many of you and these concepts will be fully developed once we finish the section.

  • As a result, you will develop the fundamentals of interpreting circuit diagrams so that these illustrations of the arrangement of electronic components can help you with the remainder of the course.

  • The final of the three components, resistors will be covered next.

  • How the three component are related mathematically is Ohm’s Law and this fundamental law will be covered in detail.  These sections make up the basic, basic material of electronics.

  • Four additional components common to virtually all electronic circuits are the capacitor, inductor, diode, and transistor. I will cover these topics with a level of detail that will familiarize the audience with the function of these components and the basics of how they work and react in different situations.  

  • There are text reading assignments for each section of the course.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone with a need to brush up their knowledge of basic electronics
