The following items, along with many others used in Lab exercises, are provided in your group kit:
|1 kΩ resistor|
|330Ω DIP resistor array|
|0.1 μF capacitor|
|2N2222 general purpose NPN transistor (1 A)|
|NO push-button switch|
|PIC16F88 18P-DIP microcontroller|
small "breadboard" (solderless protoboard)
These are useful to get started on the PIC-programming-related project deliverables due later in the semester.
Each Lab group is also provided an NI ELVIS board, a Vilros Ultimate Starter Kit + LCD, and a breadboard.
Additional general purpose components will also be available in the Lab on a limited basis, including:
Groups must research and purchase other components required in their designs. See useful local and mail-order vendors for for supplier information.
You are allowed to keep all components provided to you in your kits and in Lab (except for the NI ELVIS board, which you must return at the end of the semester).
Mountain States Electronics also offers the following additional discounted kits for purchase to help augment your course-supplied kit:
MECH307 KIT: $39.08 - The price of this kit is a 25% discount from regular pricing. The student(s) will be able to do any substitutions, additions, or subtractions to the kit that they wish and still receive the 25% discount. The only qualifier is that the price is no less than the base amount. For example student might want a bigger breadboard, or different values of resistors and capacitors, etc.
