This course introduces electrical product development and fabrication. Topics include schematic and circuit layout software and conventions, printed circuit board assembly, enclosures, connectors, scheduling, budgeting, and documentation. Each student works on a common product of reasonable complexity; develops and assembles a printed circuit board and documents; and presents the finished product. The lab develops practical skills in circuit board layout and fabrication, time management, and technical presentation.
