Setting up an electronics lab is the dream of many electronics engineers and hobbyists, but getting it done is usually a very big task to achieve. From knowing the amount of space you’d need, to know the right kind of tools to buy, and then to the right kind of devices with the right features and functionalities, you’d agree with me that one needs to be very strategic in the kind of decisions he makes, especially when it comes to choosing from millions of components that are in the market. While we are considering making this a series, providing a series of guides to help with home lab setups, this particular article will focus on some of the components you should have in a Home Lab.
