Component Request Form

π       Download form

-   Get this form signed by a lab demonstrator (they will want to see a circuit diagram first!) and take it to the EE&T Electronics Workshop, located in room EE-G15.

-   Only small number of low-value components will be given out. Otherwise groups should buy components from the workshop or elsewhere.

Component Price List

π       For components sold at the EE&T Electronics Workshop, located in room EE-G15.


·      Electronics retailers: Jaycar Electronics, Altronics, Farnell, Oatley Electronics, Dick Smith Electronics

·      Information on low-cost, microprocessor platforms/kits that are easy to get started with: NerdKits, Arduino, PICkit, PICs in general (note: everything used in final design tested counts towards budget; development tools do not count towards the budget). A very detailed guide to using microprocessors for the complete beginner – coming soon.
