EEC471-472 Basic Electricity and Electronics

The EEC471-2 components are used to construct circuits on the EEC470 deck, and introduce the student to basic principles of electrical & electronic theory and circuits.


A kit of Basic Electricity & Electronics components, housed in a convenient storage tray with identification information. Introduces the student to the basic principles of electrical theory and circuits and the physical and electrical characteristics of commonly used semiconductor devices and circuits. The course begins with an introduction to the general concepts of electricity and electronics, which is followed by practical assignments.
