CIM in Electronics Manufacturing

ECET 36000 / 4 Cr. (3 Class, 2 Lab)

This course covers the manufacture and assembly of electronic printed circuit boards from component selection and board layout to soldering and test. Special emphasis is placed on high volume manufacturing techniques and state-of-the-art processes, such as surface mount technology (SMT). Laboratory projects include CAD circuit board layout, using automatic placement and soldering equipment, investigating thermal characteristics of circuit boards, process design and evaluation using SPC techniques. Effects of manufacturing processes on electrical characteristics are considered.
