About the Project

In this project, you will using a DMM to perform the continuity test on a buggy circuit.

For this project, you will need to come to the IEEE lab some time starting this Friday November 2nd and find an officer. The officer will hand you a few buggy circuits with which you must walk them through the debugging process. Show them where the problems in the soldering are, and how you know that they are there.

Notes

  • ONLY USE A DMM TO DEBUG THE CIRCUIT
  • Do not plug in a battery to the circuit
  • Do not solder anything on the board you get for debugging, and do not alter the breadboard you get in any way
  • You will get checked off on the project once you first debug the perfboards, and then debug the breadboard after
  • Please come bug us to get two random perfoards out of the four, we will forget if you leave and expect us to come to you!
  • If you are having trouble debugging the breadboard, draw it out as a schematic and try to analyze it that way. The slides should help you with that.
