Assignment Week 10

  • group assignment:

    • Measure the analog levels and digital signals in an input device
  • individual assignment:

    • Measure something: add a sensor to a microcontroller board that you have designed and read it

Learning outcome

  • Demonstrate workflows used in circuit board design and fabrication
  • Implement and interpret programming protocols

Student should have

  • Described your design and fabrication process using words/images/screenshots.
  • Explained the programming process/es you used and how the microcontroller datasheet helped you.
  • Explained problems and how you fixed them
  • Included original design files and code


Is the satsha kit/fabduino I fabricated considered a valid board for this assignment?

Answer: Fabricating an unmodified board is considered as electronics production. It doesn’t count towards any design skill. You must make some significant changes to the original satsha kit/fabduino, for the board to be considered your own design.
