THIS PAPER WILL NOT BE OFFERED IN 2021
This laboratory course consists of a number of experimental tasks, or 'labs'. Students engage in applied projects that explore important circuit topologies, and techniques in modern electronics for collecting, transmitting, and processing information represented as electrical signals. Two final labs explore high-level systems production using the Arduino platform.
There are 7 labs available, some of which are designated 1-week labs, the rest are 2-week labs. We run a Keller-type plan, in which students progress at their own pace; there is no fixed time start or finish time for a given lab.
