Welcome!

Welcome to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Resource Center! Here you'll find everything you need to know about departmental technical support.

The ECE Resource Center supplies all ECE students with the parts needed to build their class projects (no charge), in addition offers the following support to all ECE students and faculty:

Parts
Instrumentation
Specialized cables and probes
Technical support - consultation on designs, implementation, and troubleshooting


We will keep the information on this site current, check back often.



PARTS

We have over 7,500 unique items, and over 1 million items in stock!!!

The old Google Sheets inventory is no longer being maintained, we have moved to an online inventory and ordering system, you can access it at https://rowanengr.com/inventory/  The new system is in the very early stages of implementation and we are prioritizing the importing of components based upon frequency of usage – resistors are first up.  We are also implementing parametric search and are getting an exact count of all parts; with over 7500 SKUs, we estimate this will take in excess of a year to fully implement

The Resource Center is not self-service and is not open for walk-in service, we offer contact-less ordering and pick up.  Parts orders for in stock items are normally filled within 24 business hours (M-F, 0900-1700), and in most cases within a few hours, depending on staff availability; the Resource Center is staffed by students, who have classes that interfere with the center's operations, please be patient and respect your classmates' schedules. If you are remote during the pandemic we may be able to ship you the parts you need, email us for details (leonem@rowan.edu AND dyerk@rowan.edu). 

If the part you are searching for has not yet been added to the system, you can use the "Can't find what you need?" option to submit your request - you must provide us with a Mouser link or if it is not on Mouser, find it on another vendor site.  Note: we are limited on where we purchase due to state procurement guidelines, so some parts may be beyond our ability to acquire.

If you are looking for assistance with parts ordering you must have a proper documentation package (schematic, circuit analysis or simulation, Bill of Materials with detailed part numbers, all using the proper engineering software, no hand drawn documents).  This is to support and encourage proper engineering practices.  We do not support guessing engineering.

No formal documentation = no parts


For Research & Clinic

All research and clinic requests MUST include your funding source (FOPAL), requests received without this number will be discarded.   Please use the the "Can't find what you need?" option to submit your request until we complete the GUI for grant funded projects.

If you need parts not stocked your will need to acquire a quote from the vendor; email your quotes with FOPAL to leonem@rowan.edu AND dyerk@rowan.edu.

Only one research project per order to allow us to track research budgets.


Check our inventory BEFORE you place an order.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Announcements





We have a variety of technologies available to make PCBs: external fab house, mill in house, and print in house.

If you need a board milled (subtractive process using single or double sided FR-1 bare copper boards) or printed (using a blank FR-4 board, glass, or other non conductive heat tolerant substrates), please contact leonem@rowan.edu. If this is your first in house board, please contact us BEFORE you design your PCB for instructions on DFM.

For boards that are sent to an external fab house, we normally order from PCBWay. For research, each project shall aggregate their project board requests. Details to follow. In the interim contact leonem@rowan.edu for instructions.

If you are familiar with the current process (you have ordered boards and worked directly with Mario after September 2020) you may:

Send board requests to leonem@rowan.edu with the subject line being ECEBR


Ordering Guide




Starting Fall 2020 you must abide by the new procedures below for any 3D print requests.


The ECE Department has three 3D printers, an Ultimaker 2+, and an Ultimaker 3 and FormLabs SLA

All 3D prints are printed for you. To be placed in the print queue, upload your STL file to the print queue.

Click here to be redirected to the print queue.

For any questions, please contact:

ece3dprinting@rowanengr.com

with the subject ECE3D

Refer to the ECE 3D printing request guide (below) for details and instructions.

Once you receive notification that your part has been finished, you have one week to come and pick up the part.  If you do not pick up the part within the one week period it will not be easy for you to request a part in the future.  You can track the process of all prints from the print queue.

Starting Fall 2019 you must bring a Bill of Materials (BOM) along with schematics/PCB files if you want the Resource Center to help you with projects/assembly/fab/etc.

Please click the document links for more information.
