Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing thismodule, students will be able to develop sensor evaluation circuits, signal interfaces and actuator control circuits until they are ready for series production.
They will be familiar with the process steps from a circuit diagram to a printed circuit board and will be able to carry them out independently.
They will be able to simulate electronic and sensor functional assemblies and build them independently.

Module content:
The procedure for circuit design will be explained based on selected examples of sensor evaluation circuits etc. Required special components will be discussed if necessary. A special focus will be put on the guidelines for the awarding of the CE mark and its specific application to circuit design and product design.
The manufacturability and the related costs of possible solutions will be analyzed in the form of case studies.
PCB development with the help of and based on the EDA program ARIADNE
Circuit diagram module, database module, layout module, CAM module (GC-Prevue)
Circuit simulation with the help of and based on the program WinSpice
Introduction, program operation, circuit description (structure of a Spice file, components, model instructions, subcircuits), control instructions, types of analysis, types of output, simulating application circuits
