Undergraduate Course: Design and Manufacturability; Digital Systems Lab 3 (ELEE09031)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 9 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The lecture based part of the course introduces a structured and quantitative approach to electronic product design for manufacture (DFM); the link between design & manufacture; statistical process control (SPC); and design & analysis of experiments (DOE).
The purpose of this lab course is to produce students who are capable of developing synchronous digital circuits from high level functional specifications and prototyping them on FPGA hardware using a standard hardware description language (HDL).
Why design for manufacture?
Models of the manufacturing process
Defects and Yield
Reliability and cost
Space Tower group exercise
Solar Tower group exercise
DAM Lectures - SPC/DOE
History, context and background
Permutations & combinations
Probability (including Bayes)
Design of experiments
Regression and correlation
