Prototyping circuits: intro to electronics
Friday, June 24, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Interested in learning to build electronic circuits, but don't know where to start? This is the course for you! In this introductory-level course you'll learn how to read a schematic and how to use it to build a working prototype. During the course you'll build the Atari Punk Console, a circuit that produces sounds reminiscent of retro video games. We'll also discuss some basic theory of how the circuit works, and we'll do some basic "circuit bending" by tinkering with the design and see how our changes affect the circuit's behaviour.
All materials are available to borrow during the course. If you decide you want to take the parts home, kits can be purchased in advance or on site. A parts list will also available if you decide to purchase components elsewhere.
