Elective for: D4, E4-is
Language of instruction: The course will be given in English on demand


To work in a project group is probably the most common situation for an engineer, either as project leader or as a specialist in some area. This course gives the student skills in using knowledge of analogue and digital building blocks, and illustrates industrial developing work.

The main part of the course consists of design and create of a PCB with appropriate design tools, and to equip and test the construction. At the beginning of the course some lectures are given in order to support the project activities. Each group of two gets their own lab desk with all the necessary instruments and tools that they can use throughout the course. During office hours supervisors are available for advice and troubleshooting.

Examination details
