In this course students will form teams to learn and perform electronics
industry practice regarding the design fabrication, assembly, and
testing of printed circuit boards (PCBS). Student teams will capture,
read, and edit schematics, design PCB physical layout, order and receive
PCBs, and assemble (including soldering) and test the finished design.
Throughout the course student teams will participate in design reviews
and regularly report progress and problems to a project manager
(instructor). Some aspects of the course will parallel ELE 130 . This
course is recommended for students interested in creating their own
circuit boards to implement electronic maker projects. No prior
experience with electronics is required but general experience with
personal computers is helpful.
