Nov 13, Lab 10 Complete Task 4 in the Robot Design Project. This Lab report is cancelled. Put it into the final project just show what you got. Please focus on the PCB design and have a great job on that.


Nov 16 - Dec 7, Project - Convert your Line Follower circuit into a PCB board. Read the following:
(We will officially start the project on Friday, Nov 16. The lecture on Friday will be an introduction of PCBs. The electronics lab will not be opened on Nov 16. We are meeting in the classroom).
THE PCB DESIGN PART IS NOT A TEAM WORK. EVERY PERSON MUST HAVE HIS/HER OWN PCB DESIGN FOR THE CREDIT. YOU WILL GET A 'ZERO' IF YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR OWN PCB DESIGN FOR THE PROJECT.

1. Follow the Tutorials in the link of 'PCB Design' to learn how to use Eagle PCB.
2. You can use the computers in the Miller lab or your personal PC to work on this. The electronics lab will be opened on the Tuesday, Nov 27th, from 8 am to 3 pm. I'll be there to help you on your PCB design. However, keep in mind that we don't have enough computers in that lab so bring your personal PC if possible. If it turns out that you come over late and no computers available in the electronics lab, you can go to the Miller lab to do this and come to this electronics lab to ask questions.
3. Create an account at PCBway.com, put your design into the cart to make it ready to order.
4. The final report is due Dec 7, 10 pm. Put ALL your work 
(videos, circuit analysis, and PCB) on the Robot design so far into one report. I'll grade that report as part of the final grade for this course project. The report should be uploaded to the same place as your regular labs.

Again, the electronics lab will be available on
Tuesday, Nov 27th, ONLY!!. I'll be there to help you on your design from 8 am to 3 pm. You may spend 90% of your time on this project either in Miller or use your personal PC.

Office hours works until Dec 7.

Here is the calendar of the remaining weeks for ENGR 201.
