In this course, students learn the principles of operation for digital and semiconductor devices. Students apply theoretical knowledge to the testing of components, soldering and desoldering procedures, troubleshooting and common applications for digital and semiconductor components. Hands on projects will demonstrate device operation and correct circuit configurations for logic gates, resistors, semiconductors and transistors. Schematic symbols and printed circuit boards will also be discussed.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
