A weekly progressive electronics fundamentals class. Please see the calendar for exact dates and details.

Course Description: ​This progressive, hands-on course will cover the fundamentals of electronics, including direct current (DC), alternating current (AC), and semiconductors. As we progress though the course we’ll build and analyze a variable DC power supply, then build an audio amplifier.

Instructor: Corey Koval (

Required Materials



The first day will be an orientation day. We’ll be going over all the details of the course and what all the materials will be used for.

Topic #1

DC: ​definitions, voltage, current, electrons, how electrons flow, Ohm’s law, resistors, resistor color code, resistor dividers, series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, power, diodes, switches and circuit protection, capacitors, inductors

Topic #2

AC: ​frequency, waveforms, capacitors, capacitive reactance, inductors, inductive reactance, impedance, RLC circuits, transformers, rectifiers, voltage regulators

Topic #3

Semiconductors: ​transistors, amplifiers


Varies with the tools bought.
