Our Equipment

Our lab is equipped with oscilloscope, power supply, signal generator and all kinds of other devices that you will need. We also have a set of spare components that you can reuse.

Our Events

Every semester, we organized all kinds of events such as tutorials, meet and greet, movie nights. And of course, every year we end the winter semester with our epic annual United States Trip.

Soldering Workshop

Description

The IEEE Concordia Soldering Workshop will introduce participants to the use and care of soldering irons. The tutorial will cover different techniques for soldering both through-hole and surface mount PCB components, as well as proper care of the iron in shared labs or at home. Participants will have boards and components available to practice on before using these skills to put together their own project.

For the Fall semester, the standard project kit is a pocket-sized mobile USB charger, which allows the user to charge any device that would normally charge via USB with 2 AA batteries. If participants have their own project they would prefer to work on (for instance, as a result of attending the PCB Design workshop or from other personal projects), they will be able to build that instead.

Price and Location

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, March 29th from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM in the ground floor lounge of the B building at the SGW campus. Tickets will be available in advance for a fee of $10 per ticket, with the entry fee used to cover the costs of refreshments provided for attendees and other event logistics costs. Tickets can be purchased at the ECA office on the 8th floor of the Hall building.

What to Bring

Participants are free to bring their own soldering projects; otherwise, all practice materials, soldering irons, and other supplies will be provided by IEEE Concordia.

Knowledge Required

Participants should have a basic knowledge of electrical circuits and fundamental principles such as Ohm's Law. While knowledge of electronics and digital systems design may be useful when applying the knowledge gained from the tutorial, neither topic is critical for understanding the tutorial material itself.
