Content and learning outcomes
The overall aim of the course is to provide deeper understanding of mechatronic design with respect to hardware
Intended learning outcomes
After this course you should be able to:
- Design a mechatronic system that is robust and takes into account EMC.
- Design power supply modules and analogue/digital signal conditioning for microcontrollers
- Take into account the interference between mechanical and electrical design
- Design and implement anlogue and digital filters
After this course you should have knowledge about:
- Standards and directives
- Environmental sustainability for electronics
- When in the development process it is necessary to take the robustness into account
- Structured fault diagnosis.
- Printed circuit board design and soldering
- Signal conditioning inside the microcontroller
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.
Literature and preparations
A Bachelor of Science, mechanical engineering, or the equivalent.
Have passed the course MF1016 Basic Electrical Engineering or gained equivalent experience in electrical engineering.
Have passed the course DD1320 Applied Computer Science/DD1321 Applied Programming and Computer Scienceor gained equivalent experience in programming techniques.

Handed out material
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Written Examination, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
