CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Construct circuits that satisfy design briefs, using solderless circuit boards/breadboards.

Definition

Construction should include
  • determining source and paths
  • using a conductor, a load, and a voltage source
  • connecting components
  • testing output for desired results.

Process/Skill Questions

  • How does the circuit design satisfy the design brief?
  • What changes may be made to optimize the design?
  • What troubleshooting methods should be used when the circuit does not behave as expected?
  • What is the benefit of using solderless breadboards?
  • What is the advantage in using a breadboard before creating a printed circuit board (PCB)?
