Catalog Description:
Untitled document
A basic electronic fabrication course designed to develop fundamental skills required of all electronic mechanic/technicians. The course includes general safety rules, basic concepts of the use and care of hand tools, soldering and de-soldering techniques to a variety of terminal posts and printed circuit boards, and coaxial and shielded pair cable assembly. The student will learn to identify graphic symbols of common electronic components used on electronic schematics, the technique of chassis assembly, and chassis wiring procedures.

Concurrent enrollment in or completion of ELEC 60, ELEC 51A or ELEC 50A with a "C" grade or better.
