Module Description:The aim of Electronic Workshop is to enable the student to acquire competency in the safe use of electronic laboratory test equipment and to acquire competency in constructing and testing electronic assemblies. The practical element of the Electronic Production subject is considered to be of great importance. Students gain valuable experience in physical component identification and the use of supplier catalogues in the component identification and ordering procedure. The skill of electronic soldering is developed in this subject which will play an important part in later project work. A major practical project is undertaken involving the assembly and test of a “trainer board” which is used in the Year 2 Digital Electronics subject and for later project work.
