|Equipment Items in Support Unit|
|The Department of Physics has started an Electronics Support Unit (ESU), and we warmly welcome all the various departments of the Science Faculty to the its services.
|Purpose and Scope of the Electronics Support Unit:
To provide support services in electronics for the Science Faculty:
a) Provide information on sourcing of electronic instruments and parts. The ESU will not supply the instruments and parts for the departments as there is no such funding.
b) Help design custom electronic circuits. Fabrication of circuits may be outsourced.
c) Provide guidance/training on various aspects of electronics, e.g. correct usage of measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes, signal generators, etc.
The focus will be on giving support to facilitate the use of custom electronics in research and teaching in the faculty.
The Unit is not for the servicing or repair of electronic equipment. Modern electronics are generally not designed for repair. Repairing involves replacement of whole circuit boards and is more effectively handled by the equipment agents with their special resources and access to parts.

A labour charge of $50/hour will apply for the use of the service.
Parts and components will have to be funded by the service users themselves, since ESU does not have the fund allocated for this purpose.
The ESU wants to encourage productive usage of its services.
