Electronic DIY educational solder kits

DIY solder kits

Educational electronic DIY kits have always been a popular method to get acquainted with electronics. When you buy a electronic DIY kit from us you will receive a kit of electronic components, printed circuit board and assembly guidelines.

Your challenge will be to identify the parts, put them in the right location and solder them in place. Then you will test, and if needed, troubleshoot your assembly.

To assemble an electronic kit you will need some basic hand tools; a 25-50W soldering pen, a small wire cutter and perhaps some other common tools.

Most of our educational electronic kits uses through-hole components, but we do also offer a few kits based on surface mount components (SMD).

  FM oscillator 3V
A FM-oscillator that can be used for receiver testing and cable transmissons to an FM-receiver. Must be built-in into a shileded box, and connected via coax-cable to the receiver. Has on-board microphone, but can also be modulated with other audio sources. Outside EU it may also - depending of local legislation - be used as an open air transmitter. 3V power supply.

  Frequency Generator Kit 200kHz FG085
Function generators are useful in a ton of applications from RF to embedded logic. They're not usually super cheap though. Good news: we found a kit. The FG085 MiniDDS Function Generator is a 'some assembly required' kit that becomes a flexible, functional and easy to use frequency generator. Just solder the through-hole parts in place, attach the face/base plates and before you know it you'll be generating sinewaves at frequencies up to 200KHz! But that's only one of the tricks this thing can do. Three different operating modes allow the FG085 to generate 7 different types of continuous waveform as well as servo test and control signals in micro-second resolution. The LCD screen and menu system make this an easy instrument to operate. Frequency, amplitude and offsets can all be set with the number pad and incrementally adjusted with the rotary encoder. The incremental step size can even be adjusted to make sweeps over a wide range easier to handle. The FG805 can generate a peak to peak amplitude up to 10V with an offset range from -5 to +5VDC. It can even be used as an adjustable DC voltage source by setting the amplitude to 0. Please note! This kit does not include power supply. Suitable power supplies are listed under "related products". Includes: FG085 miniDDS Function Generator PCB with SMT parts installed Acrylic Faceplate and Baseplate Alphanumeric LCD and Headers Through-hole Parts Bag Quickstart Assembly Guide Output cable (BNC + clips) Features: Generates continuous waveforms of Sine, Square, Triangle, Ramp (up and down), and Staircase (up and down) Generates servo test/control signals in micro-second resolution with user programmable pulse width, amplitude, and cycle Set the frequency (or period), amplitude, and offset with number pad - quick and straight-forward Frequency (period), amplitude, and offset can be incrementally adjusted with rotary encoder Settings are memorized after power down Can be used as an adjustable DC voltage source by setting amplitude to 0 Frequency range: 0 - 200KHz (Sine) Frequency resolution: 1Hz Period resolution: 1ms Amplitude range: 0 - 10V peak-to-peak Offset range: -5V - +5V Memory depth: 256 bytes Sample rate: 2.5Msps Output impedance: 50 ohm Current consumption: Dimension: 155 X 55 X 30 mm Net weight: 100 gram
