ENGR2712 has been successfully completed
An understanding of electronics, such as might be obtained in ENGR8703 Electronics
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), ladder programming, PLC instructions, timers, counters, flags and analog I/O in PLCs, testing and debugging a program on a PLC, generating timed and event-driven sequences such as traffic lights, automating and monitoring an industrial process with a PLC using on/off or PID (Proportional, Integration and Derivative) control, introduction to SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems, automation and control of a small-scale industrial assembly process, industrial automation in an assembly line including automatic warehouse, inspection, classification and delivery.
The topic introduces students to the principles of electronic design for manufacturing and how to design PCBs for developing prototypes of advanced microelectronic circuits. It also covers how to work with professional design tools available in industry. The students will also learn how to design, program, test, and monitor an automated control system using PLCs.
Expected learning outcomes
At the completion of the topic, students are expected to be able to:
Understand the principles of electronic design for manufacturing
Understand the use of electronic CAD (computer aided design) tools for designing printed circuit boards
Understand signal integrity and electromagnetic compatibility when designing PCBs
Understand appropriate design solutions for given requirements
Understand the designing, programming, testing, and monitoring of automated industry processes using PLCs
Understand generating timed sequences
Understand issues affecting the control of an industrial plant with different control strategies
Understand emerging research issues in electronic design
