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.
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.
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.
