Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to give the students the basic knowledge on design and manufacturing of electronics. The most important objectives of the course are to provide knowledge about printed circuit board (PCB) design, manufacturing and the component assembly process. The complete design flow from circuit schematic to assembled PCB is addressed. When encountered with, electronics associated environmental issues (Mainly chemical questions related to PCB processing.) are also discussed. Furthermore, the course contains tutorial in planning, conducting, finishing and evaluating technical projects. The students should learn how to design and manufacture there own PCBs. Such knowledge is used in courses such as Mobile Autonomous Robots. After this course the student should be able to

  • Describe manufacturing process of printed circuit boards (PCB).
  • Explain different IC-packages.
  • Evaluate and select suitable components.
  • Design and CAD and manufacture a functioning double sided PCB.
  • Evaluate the functionality of the own mounted PCB.
  • Predict failure risk for different PCB.

Course content

The course is focused on the manufacturing of printed circuit boards (PCB, also known as printed wiring board (PWB).) and board assembly. The issues such as substrates, substrates packaging, components, components reliability, soldering, wire bonding, chip attach, test and environmental impact of electronics manufacturing are discussed. Since the project task is solved in groups, method and organization of technical projects is a part of the project task. To start, run and finish projects (project flow), Project planning, documentation and managing of projects.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures and laboratory work. The manufacturing laboratory work is conducted at the ITN - printed circuit board laboratory. Furthermore the projects are based on the manufacturing of a printed circuit board. The design and manufacturing of the printed circuit board is done in groups. The group is planning, running and finishing a project on designing, CAD and manufacturing a PCB.
