With its hands-on approach and careful focus on key topics, this innovative book gives thorough coverage of the fundamentals of electronic design, fabrication, and documentation, PLUS a complete experience in creating electronic prototype devices. Readers can work their way through projects covering all skill levels and will learn how to present a thorough Project Report—with written and graphic documentation—delineating procedures, developments, and specifications of a project. This book asks the reader to both design and construct a project and document the procedure. Easy to read and informative, it covers safety; the design process; drawings; technical writing; experimenting; prototyping through printed circuit board design, fabrication, and final assembly and packaging; testing, troubleshooting, and final documentation; computer-aided design (CAD); and surface mount technology. An excellent reference for industrial, mechanical, and electronic engineers, as well as technical writers in these fields.
