ENGR 072. Electronic Circuit Applications

The student will design electronic circuits that sense the surroundings (light, temperature, sound...), process the signal, and respond via an actuator (motor, light...) or communication to a computer.  Students will design and debug circuits, lay out printed circuit boards using CAD software, and solder the components onto the board.   Electronic designs include those with diodes, op-amps for amplification and filtering of electronic signals, and power MOSFET transistors used as switching devices for actuators. Students will program microcontrollers, including on-chip peripherals, and write code to process interrupts.  Mixed signal devices (A/D and D/A converters) are introduced and used throughout the course.  
Prerequisite: ENGR 012  or permission of the instructor.
