FACET Electronics Training System

From Our Partners at


Complete, modular training

The Fault-Assisted Circuit Electronics Training (FACET) Electronics Training System is based on a program consisting of courses carefully designed to foster recognition, understanding, experimentation, troubleshooting, application, design, and evaluation of analog and digital electronics circuitry.

The complete learning solution encompasses four areas of study:

  1. Basic Principles of Electricity and Electronics
  2. Digital and Micro-processor Electronics
  3. Industrial Electronics
  4. Communications Systems

Hands-on learning

FACET incorporates built-in circuit modification and fault- insertion training capabilities. Students perform experiments on a wide range of analog and digital electronics and electricity training modules that combine theory and application with prac- tical skills training techniques. Each module connects with a base unit that distributes power and controls the circuits on the board. A complete training sta- tion consists of training hard- ware (any one of the modules, plus a base unit and accessory kit), instruments, and student manual or MindSight Learning Content Management System with the eSeries courseware.

Several delivery modes

FACET is delivered in a standard, paper-based curriculum. It is also offered as an E-Learning courseware through the LCMS MindSight.

When combined with the LCMS MindSight® and eSeries courses, FACET becomes a totally connected learning system for electronics, with all the computer- based learning advantages.

FACET is suitable for a multi- tude of training purposes in educational, industrial, and military training laboratories.

Total program duration is approximately 400 hours.

FACET with Tec2Screen and CAN Bus

Learn how you can use the FACET microcontroller board 91030 to control a typical everyday life simulation running on Tec2Screen: the traffic light. See how two FACET workstations can be combined with each other using a CAN Bus network. The application synchronizes the FACET Microcontroller boards to control traffic lights on a major boulevard.
