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.

What you’ll learn

• Understand the concepts of voltage, resistance and current
• Understand the VOLT OHM Meter/ Digital Multi Meter and how to use safely
• Use Ohm's Law to calculate voltage, current and resistance
• Use resistors in various configurations
• Understand and use capacitors
• Understand and use diodes
• Understand and use a transistor

Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?

• A multimeter
• A breadboard, jumper wires and a battery
• Resistors, capacitors, LEDs, diodes, transistors, voltage regulators

Who this course is for:

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