Students will be involved in designing, making and critiquing printed circuit boards. Circuit and product analysis is undertaken and a range of theory topics are taught including component recognition and function; soldering and circuit documentation. Students will learn to read schematic wiring diagrams and prototype circuits before they are manufactured. Integrated circuits and robotics are also covered. Circuit measurements are made using a multimeter.
- Two Specialised Skills Tasks
