Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After completing this course, the student will be able to:

1. Assess the need for a prototype of a device, connected conditions for implementation and timetable for the project.

2. Choose the implementation principles for the electronic prototype and suitable structural constituents on the component and module levels.

3. Use computer-based tools for prototype design.

4. Calculate the mechanical structures required by the electronics of the prototype.

5. Determine the measurement and testing principles for the prototype, required measurement instruments and detailed testing arrangements. 

6. Formulate detailed documentation of the prototype.

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The composition of prototype devices, conditions encountered in their design. Determining and selecting modules. Computer-assisted design methods. Critical components. Planning and implementation of measurement and testing arrangements. Themes of this course are a further continuation of a course on designing electronic devices (Design of Electronic Equipment, course in Finnish).

Närmare beskrivning av kursens innehåll (gäller denna kursomgång): 

Each week a progress report is given by participants. Typically groups of 2-3 people are formed during the first lecture. The verbal reports, supplemented by relevant slides, contain highlights of all technically relevant design topics of the selected project theme. These can be, but are not limited to, mechanical dimensioning and selection of materials, electronic design with components, schematics and block diagrams and even testing and evaluation tools.

Metoder, arbetssätt och bedömningsgrunder (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
