ELE-120 - Printed Circuit Design

3 credits

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.
