Learning Outcomes (valid 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.

Content (valid 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).
