Course content

The course is organized around the first phase of a larger innovation project. The students will get acquainted with a collaborating partner with a real-world problem. They will gain basic experience with relevant technology in order to design a system that meets the problem requirements. The project will be completed in the fourth semester in the course TTT4270 Electronic System Design, Project.

Learning outcome

- Practical knowledge of how physical quantities are converted to and from electrical signals in sensors and actuators, respectively.
- Practical knowledge of how electrical signals are digitized and how digital signals are converted to analogue ones.
- Beginning understanding of how electrical circuit elements from concurrent courses are used for practical problem solving with electronic systems.
- Other learning outcomes depend on the nature of the innovation project.

- Design of simple electronic systems using microcontrollers, sensors and actuators.
- Documentation of problem solution by developed electronic system.

General competence:
- Beginning identification with the role of technological problem solver and innovator.
- Team work skills.
