ECE118: Introduction to Mechatronics


Technologies involved in mechatronics (intelligent electro-mechanical systems) and techniques necessary to integrate these technologies into mechatronic systems. Topics include electronics (A/D, D/A converters, opamps, filters, power devices), software program design (event-driven programming, state machine-based design), DC and stepper motors, basic sensing, and basic mechanical design (machine elements and mechanical CAD). Combines lab component of structured assignments with a large and open-ended team project. Students who enrolled in this class will learn how to solve engineering problems using the C Programming Language. Cannot receive credit for this course and course 218. (Formerly CMPE 118.) PR-E Practice: collaborative endeavor
Prerequisite(s): ECE 101 and ECE 101L and CSE 100 and CSE 100L; and CSE 13E or ECE 13. ECE 121 and ECE 167 are highly recommended (but not required).

10 Credits
