Teaching Electronics in Technical and Vocational Colleges

Labs take advantage of myDAQ and Multisim to help build and simulate rectifiers and transistor biasing circuits.
This set of labs is aimed at teaching introductory and advanced electronics concepts for engineering technology and technician programs. These materials provide you with 8 laboratories that use NI Multisim and NI myDAQ that can be easily integrated into your two-year or vocational program. Students are guided through labs focused on teaching the fundamentals of rectifiers, LED biasing, and LED IV characterization.
