These labs are not required, but most students should plan to do many of these, depending on previous background, general interest, and knowledge needed for projects.

soldering tutorial from EEVBlog.(Watch this, too, if you have enough time. )
Pre-quel to the above EEVBlog video. (You can put this one off until later, if time is short now.)
A step-by-step sequence of soldering a perfboard circuit. You can use this a guide, if you have never made a perf board prototype before. This is not the PWM circuit, but the procedure is similer. In particular, note how various connections are made by either bending leads or using hook-up wire. Also, note the use of the connector. (This circuit was a 555-based LED flasher, done as an Audio Club soldering project.)
Fritzing can be used to make a perf board plan.
