Text books are not required for laboratory courses. Instead, students must provide hand tools, test leads, breadboards, and other items that are used to set-up and perform experiments. One set of tools is required for each lab working group - usually two students - and may be shared, although most students prefer to have their own kits. The same tools are required for all lab courses, so a one-time purchase covers most student-supplied materials needed for ECGR 2155, 2156, 3155, and 3156.
Lab kits may be purchased at the UNCC Bookstore or online from Electronix Express. Two pre-packaged kits are available: Standard, and Deluxe. The standard kit contains everything that you will need for in-class experiments. The deluxe kit is optional for students having a personal desire for the additional items that it contains. To view the contents of a kit, click "More Info" beside the line item on the Electronix Express web page. Individual kit items are described in the Electronix Express online catalog. A sample kit is available for examination in Mr. Hill's office at EPIC 2154.
