Project EASE Technology and Livelihood Education IV Radio Mechanics Module 7 : The Building Blocks Stages of AM Radio Receiver
  |  Educational level: Year IV

Description: 
Undoubtedly, the superheterodyne principle reigns supreme in current receiver design. Superheterodyne radio receiver or “superhets” were mass produced with great success every fifty years. The superheat design offers the prime advantages of high selectivity and high sensitivity which remain fairly constant through- out the tuning range of a receiver. It was natural that, from the very beginning, transistor radios used the superheterodyne principle.

Project EASE Technology and Livelihood Education IV Radio Mechanics Module 6 : Powerful Energizers (Low Voltage Power Supplies)
  |  Educational level: Year IV

Description: 
Projects and activities make the difference in technical training. There is no easier, taster and more practical way of learning electronics than through kits or projects. Today, there are many interesting kits or projects you can assemble while learning the technical skills you need to start a chosen career. Through simple circuits and projects in this lesson, you can develop your skills by yourself. Theory alone, may be all that an engineer needs, but it is enough for a technician. What is important is how theory is put into practice, and how electronics really works. Moreover, the usual troubles in low voltage supply are explained, including the practical methods in troubleshooting or repairing work.

Project EASE Technology and Livelihood Education IV Radio Mechanics Module 4 : Small But Terrible Electronic Components
  |  Educational level: Year IV

Description: 
This module is about small electronic parts which are the building blocks of electronic equipment and appliances. These electronic equipment and appliances are made up of circuits. Circuits are made up of electronic components. Components and their interconnections are represented in diagrams by their schematic symbols. Technician always refer to schematic diagrams when troubleshooting and repairing equipment.We cannot read and interpret diagrams without knowing component symbols. As electronic students and would-be technicians, it is a must for you to learn the symbols and functions of the basic electronic components.

Project EASE Technology and Livelihood Education IV Radio Mechanics Module 2 : Strike While the Iron is Still Hot (Soldering Techniques)
  |  Educational level: Year IV

Description: 
Every electronic technician should know the rules on how to solder properly. The importance of doing a good soldering job that can contribute to the normal operation and service of the radio receiver, TV receiver or other electronic equipment, and project or kit. About 90% of all kit assembly and service problems relate to poorly soldered connections, particularly on printed circuit board. This module guides readers in the proper way of soldering wire or component lead to the PCB. Moreover, it provides soldering rules, recommends the correct wattage of soldering iron for PCB, selection of solder and soldering precautions.
