General Information Edit

A class all about design and ethics in ECE. Project was a heart rate monitor system before 2015, but completely re-designed for SP15. Most of semester is spent building a robot that travels through a maze and maps it, using Arduinos and FPGAs.

Prerequisites Edit

ECE 2100, 2200, and 2300

Topics Covered Edit

  • The Design Process
  • Development Methodologies
  • Useful circuitry for ECE projects
  • Ethics

  • Lab 2: Analog Circuits and FFTs for Whistle Frequency Sensing
  • Lab 3: FPGA Programming and Interface for VGA Monitor Display
  • Lab 4: Radio Communication between Arduinos with the Nordic
  • Final Project: A month to develop a maze-mapper robot, extra points given to the team with the robot that maps an accurate maze the most quickly
