Power supplies are the backbone of the electronics world, but choosing and using them can be daunting. In this two-part class, Ray will discuss how to select and use power supplies for your projects. Students will get to use multimeters and oscilloscopes to perform basic measurements.

Part one of this class will explore AC-DC linear and switching supplies and the pros and cons of using these specific supplies. Each student will power up a switching module and a discrete linear design in the lab.

Part two of this class will focus on DC-DC linear and switching supplies. After discussing the trade-offs and key specs, each student will power up a switching module and breadboard and test a linear voltage regulator circuit.

All experience levels are welcome at this event, and the only requirement is a pen and pencil.

Please note, this is a two-part class. Your ticket purchase will fund entry into both classes. For more information about this class and to purchase your ticket, go here: https://knoxmakers.org/event/power-supplies-101-part-1-of-2/
