Tools and parts list for Applied Electronics W2017 and S2017

This parts list for BME 51A and 51B (Applied Electronics for Bioengineers) Winter and Spring 2017, is based on the Spring 2016 list.  Prices are based on ordering enough parts for 66 kits, but do not always include tax and shipping, so final prices may be 15% higher. The list is almost the same as last year, so most leftover parts can be reused. Expected capacity for BME 51A is 66 students, though we could pack in up to 72.

Main updates from 2016 (with to-do items):

  • Different resistor assortment (more expensive but more different values, and contains many values in crucial 10kΩ–1MΩ range)
  • Added air-line tubing, which was forgotten last year (larger diameter also).
  • Changed to lower-threshold pFET
  • Added diode
  • 2016 Oct 25: added Lego bricks
  • 2016 Oct 31: changed DT9205A DMM supplier (original offer no longer available)
  • 2016 Nov 28: changed DT9205A DMM supplier back (offer available again), UCSC couldn’t order from AliExpress, so I had to order on my personal account
