ECET 29700 - Electronic Prototype Development
Credit Hours: 4.0.
This course introduces basic concepts in the development of an electronic product prototype. The student develops an electronic device by utilization of: electronic design automation (EDA), design for testing (DFT), surface mount technology (SMT), design for manufacturability (DFM), component characteristic selection techniques, and basic failure predictions. New construction and testing techniques are introduced. The final prototype is presented in a written and/or oral report.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
1. Plan and complete a prototype by the application of EDA techniques.
2. Perform appropriate component selection based on the functional definition of the prototype.
3. Respond appropriately to design criteria that emphasize DFM and DFT.
4. Apply problem-solving techniques to predict PCB and component failures.
5. Isolate and identify faults that will be applied to the completed prototype.
6. Document and present the final prototype.
