Lab-in-a-Box Kit Requirements:

For most lab materials, we have arranged for one-stop shopping from Electronix Express, at competitive prices.
Fully compatible parts from other vendors may be used. If you already own a fully compatible item, it is not necessary
to purchase another one for a particular course.

ECE 2054, ECE 3074

  • Students are required to purchase or have the following Lab-in-a-Box items:
    • A and D Trainer with Power Supply (Also Known As A&D Board) - Part no 32VPTADBRD from Electronix Express or another vendor.
    • Velleman PCSGU250 Oscilloscope with Function Generator - Part no 32VPTPCSGU250 from Electronix Express or another vendor.
      Note: if you have a 1MHz scope with a function generator, you do not need to purchase the Velleman scope.
    • Digital multimeter - V79 Part no 32VPTV79 from Electronix Express is recommended.
      Note: Other meters with similar specs are acceptable.
    • Meter and scope probe kit - Part no 32VPTTPK132VPTTPK2 from Electronix Express are recommended (32VPTTPK2 contains the cables below).
      • need at least 1 - BNC to Test Hook, 3 ft. long (05SPAT1)
      • need at least 1 - BNC to Alligators 10x scope probe, 3 ft long (05SPAK220)
      • need at least 1 - Banana-to-IC Hook, , 1 black, 1 red, 3ft. long (05ALS5)
      • need at least 1 - Banana-to-Alligators, 1 black, 1 red, 3ft. long (05ALS3)
    • Screwdriver, 22 Gauge wire stripper, needle nose pliers - tool kit Part no 32VPTTK1 from Electronix Express is highly recommended.
      Similar tools are acceptable.
    • LTspice - free download from Linear Technology
       

ECE 2074

  • Students are required to purchase or have the following Lab-in-a-Box items:

ECE 2054, ECE 2074

  • ECE 2054 and 2074 Students will receive from the ECE Dept:
    • Electronics Parts Kit with all electronic circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors ICs, etc)
    • Distribution is in the OpEL Lab (219 Whittemore) during the first week of classes (Tentatively on Friday noon ~ 5PM).

ECE 3074

  • ECE 3074 Students should already have:
    • Electronics Parts Kit with all electronic circuit components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors ICs, etc)
    • Transfer students should contact your instructor to obtain a kit.

  • How to create -5V from an ANDY board?

  • The ANDY board provides +9V, -9V and +5V but not -5V. Click the link below to see how to create -5V.
          Create -5V on your ANDY board.
