Learning activities and methodology
The objective of this course is to integrate the knowledge of electronics acquired during the degree through the development of a small industrial electronics project in the laboratory. This project will include the use of a microprocessor, some instrumentation element and will implement a real-time embedded application with a control function. The subject has a first block of master classes during which some basic concepts are reviewed and the different projects to be carried out are exposed (2 ECTS). Subsequently, practical work in the laboratory (4 ECTS) will be developed, supported by group and individual tutorials by teachers. At least one collective tutorial is carried out halfway through the development of the course project.
