This unit extends the level of complexity of electronic design by integrating and applying knowledge from a number of second year units. Students will use knowledge from linear and non-linear electronics, computer engineering and communications engineering, to tackle a group project, applying project management skills, and extending their experience of working in groups. The project will extend the design processes introduced in the earlier units to a larger, more complex, and less constrained situation. The project will be complemented by lectures in project management, including working with teams, project management tools and techniques, and written and verbal communication.


Integration and application of knowledge from different areas. Practical experience of the tools of circuit design of greater complexity. Experience in reading a wide range of component data and extracting the relevant information. Skills to work in teams. Skills to find optima in designs subject to constraints. Confidence to consider many possible solutions and choose on the data available. Experience of practical problems of more complex electronic constructions.


Project: 70%, Requirements Analysis Document: 10%, Design Specification Document: 10%, Presentation: 10%.
Students must achieve a mark of at least 45% in each assessment component and an overall mark of at least 50% in order to achieve a pass grade.
