Electronics are the basis of many control systems. This video series get you started with prototyping in a small amount of time. If you are new to electronics start with the basics like soldering tips and breadboard.
To start experimenting with electronics you often need to solder some components on a printed circuit board (PCB). The video shows how to solder a header on a prototype board. The technique shown can be used for any leaded component.
Designing electronics often starts with a prototype. The breadboard allows you to test electronics circuits before you make a final design. The video shows how to use a solderless prototype known as breadboard.
