Mechatronics 2 - MECH50004


This module will demystify electronics and control through hands-on experience of building electronic systems and of using the instrumentation needed to see how they behave. It will develop understanding of, and an ability to use, some of the analogue electronic stages used in instrumentation and control systems - in particular: 'front ends' which generate voltage signals from changes detected by sensors, stages for processing (e.g. adding, differentiating or filtering) these signals and circuits for amplifying signals to drive output devices (e.g. a meter, motor or switch).

ECTS units: 5
