Assignments & Goal#

Group assignment#

use the test equipment in your lab to observe the operation of a microcontroller circuit board

Individual Assignments#

redraw the echo hello-world board, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor) check the design rules, make it, and test it

extra credit: simulate its operation extra credit: render it

Learning outcomes#

  • Select and use software for circuit board design
  • Demonstrate workflows used in circuit board design

Have you?#

  • Shown your process using words/images/screenshots
  • Explained problems and how you fixed them, including how you worked with design rules for milling (DRC in EagleCad and KiCad)
  • Included original design files (Eagle, KiCad, Inkscape, .cad - whatever)

NB. Also, if you make a board and it doesn’t work; franken-hack that board (with jumper wires etc) until it does work, then make a new one with the knowledge you have gained.

Refer to Assessment page



  • 個人課題:

    • Neilのサンプルをそのままトレースするのではなく、自分でデザインすること
    • できればKicadやkokoperiなど色々なツールを試してみる
    • テストプログラムの書き込みにElectric productionで作成したISPを使い、動作確認をし、ヒーローショットを撮っておくこと


Group assignment (3h)#


Individual Assignments (4h)#

  • echo hello boardに(少なくとも)スイッチ、LEDを付けたボードを作成する redraw the echo hello-world board, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor)
  • 空きポートPB2, PA7が利用できる
  • スイッチにはプルアップ、LEDには抵抗をつける
  • Attiny44 datasheet
  • Design Ruleの確認(EAGLEの場合はDRC機能:design rule checkをやればOK)
