In this induction, the member will be introduced to electronic-circuit prototyping, fabrication using stripboards / perfboards, and testing/troubleshooting of electronic circuits. They will also learn the standard placement of tools and components, and the basics of joining wires, crimping, and insulation using heatshrink tubing. The lesson plan also include the following:
Preparing work area and consumable before beginning to solder
Operating the extraction fan before soldering
Adjusting the heat of the soldering iron, and following sound practices in achieving a soldering time under 5 seconds
Using the hot air soldering gun
Applying sound practices in using the oscilloscope
Heatshrink application and terminal crimping to join wires together
Identifying the correct crimp terminal to use in different situations
Identifying the live, neutral and earth wires in AC electrical installations
Tools and Equipment Access
Upon the successful completion of this induction, the member will be granted access to the soldering irons, the hot-air soldering stations, the big soldering iron, the oscilloscope, the bench voltages, and the crimping/stripping/wire cutting tools in the workshop. They are also allowed to use electronic parts and component library.
This workshop is basic knowledge and skill development and is not project oriented.
This course is for complete beginners, no experience required
5 - 10 attendees
Attire: Not Applicable
Gear: None Required
During Workshop: Instructor and assistant supervision
After Workshop: No supervision is needed after induction. However, this induction doesn’t give the maker the right to experiment with high-voltages or dismantle devices containing high- voltage sections, including outlet voltages. This requires an additional level of training.
None. However general understanding of electronics and circuitry is a a plus and helps participants make the most out of this course. Suggested reading and video content will be sent to registered participants to prepare for workshop.
