Module Coordinator
  • Prof. Dr. Ing. Diethelm Bienhaus
  • Florian von Zabiensky
Short Description

The module covers the basic elements of digital and analog electronics. The students are also able to create prototypes of electronic circuits. In this particular value is placed on typical circuits for the connection of sensors / actuators to microcontroller.

Learning Objectives

The students

  • know basic elements of electrical engineering and their behavior
  • are able to read and interpret data sheets
  • can develop schematics for prototypes
  • master the development and assembly of printed circuit boards
  • are able to justify and document their design decisions
  • are able to convey the concept and operation of the circuit vividly
  • Circuits in stationary applications
  • Time-varying voltages and currents
  • Circuit design and board design
  • Create PCBs and populate them with components
  • Fundamental circuits (aplifier, D/A converter, frequency filter)
