ECEN 4730 - Practical Printed Circuit Board Design and Manufacture Course uri icon



  • This course prepares students with all skills needed to convert a back-of-the-napkin circuit sketch into a working widget with first time success. Students will master the seven steps in every board project: planning, selecting components, schematic entry, layout, assembly, bring up and debug, and documentation. This process will be exercised with three different board design projects with increasing challenge. A commercial EDA tool widely used in the electronics industry will be used for all projects. Previously offered as a special topics course. Degree credit not granted for this course and ECEN 4720 or ECEN 5720. Same as ECEN 5730.
