Electrical Engineering Design II

Welcome to ECGR3157!

Course Announcements


EE Design II, ECGR3157, is a hands-on course intended to teach you how to design electronic systems. You will be introduced to many important, real-world concepts including

  • How to interface with common transducers
  • How to design frequency-selective circuits
  • How to design power-electronic circuits
  • How to layout a circuit
  • How to control many common actuators like DC and AC motors

You will learn all of these in the context of fun and challenging problems, including

              • The design of power amplifiers for audio and RF circuits
              • The design of signal-processing circuits for a small stereo
              • The design of a simple speed-controller for a DC motor
              • The design of a microcontroller-based power-electronic AC motor drive
              • The design of interface and control circuitry for a real-world programmable logic controller.
