Electrical Engineering Essential Training
In this Electrical Engineering Essential Training module, I will walk you through 9 labs that would get you familiarize with the tools we use in electrical engineering and design techniques in building and testing circuits. You do need to know some basic concepts about circuits such as Ohm's Law and KCL; if you want to learn about the basics or want to review what you learned, please check out the contents in ECE 2024 Circuits and Devices page where I introduced basic concepts in electrical engineering. I will first introduce some basics in working on circuit labs and the tools and software we use in the first 3 labs.
There is no better way to get some hands-on electrical engineering experience than using operational amplifiers to build some practical and useful circuits. From lab 4 to lab 8, we are going to use operational amplifiers to build some cool circuits. In lab 9, I will introduce another popular device 555 Timer, and we will conclude this essential training by using 555 Timer to build oscillators.
I hope you will enjoy this Electrical Engineering Essential Training, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
