Practically oriented subject in the theoretical part acquaints students with the problems of construction technologies and structures in electronics / electrotechnics. The practical part of the subject emphasizes the use of computers for the design and production of design prototypes. The student is practically acquainted and acquires skills in manipulation with technologies for PCB production, assembling and soldering, resuscitation and diagnostics and technologies of design and production of simple mechanical components by rapid prototyping methods. The graduate will be able to use CAD and CAM tools to prepare production documentation, manipulate production technologies within workplaces and implement knowledges and skills to the prototype of the electronic module and its technical documentation.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the course is to provide the students with basic theoretical knowledge but above all basic practical skills from technologies of production of electronic / electromechanic constructions with computer supported design and manufacturing. From design of single-layer PCBs, their production, preparation for assembly, assembly and in circuit test diagnostics up to realization of basic techical and production documentation.
