Class Overview Two main sections of the class 1) Electronics review 4 weeks to review analog and digital electronics Will reverse-engineer circuits and create some of our own 2) PCB design Schematic capture - how your circuit works, captured electronically PCB layout PCB l - act ayout - act ually “drawing” how the printed circuit board looks lik the printed circuit board looks like ually “drawing” how Week 1± Week 2± Week 3± Week 4± Week 5± Week 6± Week 7± Week 8± Week 9± Week 10± 11± 12± 13± 14 ± Electronics Review± Schematics± PCB’s± Assembly and debug± Documentation± Massachusetts Institute of Technology 6 16.682 - Prototyping Avionics
