  4. Design and implement anlogue and digital filters

After this course you should have knowledge about:

  1. Standards and directives
  2. Environmental sustainability for electronics
  3. When in the development process it is necessary to take the robustness into account
  4. Structured fault diagnosis.
  5. Printed circuit board design and soldering
  6. Signal conditioning inside the microcontroller

Course main content

The overall aim of the course is to provide deeper understanding of mechatronic design with respect to hardware


The course is built upon lectures, exercises. For some experiments you are building your own equipment. Models of modules is brought out which later could be simulated and designed.

The experiments are ended with short questionings in front of a laboratory assistant. The course is ended with a written examination.


A Bachelor of Science, mechanical engineering, or the equivalent.

Have passed the course MF1016 or gained equivalent experience in electrical engineering.

Have passed the course DD1320/DD1321 or gained equivalent experience in programming techniques.
