Title:Electronic Design Automation
Long Title:Electronic Design Automation
Module Code:ELTR6022
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Electronic Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2020/21 ( September 2020 )
Module Delivered in 4 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: MARTIN HILL
Module Author: DONAL O DONOVAN
Module Description: This module gives the learner practical experience of producing electronic projects. It uses an electronics design package to assist with developing a project from initial concept through to schematic capture, simulation, board layout, construction and test.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use an industry standard package for the design, simulation and realisation of electronic circuits.
LO2 Design, fabricate and populate a printed circuit board (PCB) using safe and ethical laboratory practice in compliance with environmental regulations.
LO3 Test the operation of the assembled PCB.
LO4 Produce a report on the completed projects to required academic and technical standards.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
