This is a handful of sessions to learn various subjects in electronics, including component selection, mains safety, a little bit of embedded design and programming, prototyping, and CAD. It will be done by making a simple clock with easy-to-manipulate through-hole parts.
These sessions are to be run separately from Ryan's KiCad session because this has a different focus - electronics basics - and uses a different CAD program, Eagle, because it's what I'm familiar with. All software used is free.
Attendees are to bring their laptop, note-taking material, and a calculator if they have one. (Math will not exceed the elementary school level.) Grid paper is recommended but not necessary. Bring $20.00 in total (not per session) to cover the cost of parts. If the attendee elects to purchase fabrication, that cost will be separate.
In the lab we will be using oscilloscopes, power supplies, multimeters and prototyping parts brought in for this project.
