Project information

Course grading:

25 % of course grade comes from exercise points, which are 1 point or ½ point per task. Participation in demonstrations is worth 4 points. 75 % of the grade comes from the course project. The course has no exam.

Duration: 3. and 4. period

Timing in studies: Advanced studies.

Prerequisites: Electronics I, Measurement methods in Physics I, Basic studies in Physics

Course description: The aim of the course is to learn to use digital components and microprocessors as well as to learn the basics of the latest microelectronics opportunities offered for information technology and signal processing. Course project is simulated project work in a company.

Scope: 10 credits
