Updated for 2020 evaluation standards!
- Use the test equipment in your lab to observe the operation of a microcontroller circuit board (in minimum, check operating voltage on the board with multimeter or voltmeter and use oscilloscope to check noise of operating voltage and interpret a data signal)
- Document your work (in a group or individually)
- Redraw one of the echo hello-world boards or something equivalent, add (at least) a button and LED (with current-limiting resistor) or equivalent input and output, check the design rules, make it, test it.
- Select and use software for circuit board design
- Demonstrate workflows used in circuit board design
- Linked to the group assignment page
- Documented what you have learned in electronics design
- Explained problems and how you fixed them, if you make a board and it doesn't work; fix the board (with jumper wires etc) until it does work.
- Included original design files (Eagle, KiCad, - whatever)
- Included a ‘hero shot’ of your board
- Loaded a program and tested if your board works
Can I modify an existing design board?
Answer: No, you have to create your board from scratch.
Do I need to create a schematic file?
Answer: Yes, at least for this week.
Can I draw my design by hand?
Answer: Yes, but you have to use EDA software for this week.
