Physics: Electronics II
This course picks up where Electronics I left off. Microcontrollers are the main focus. Emphasis is given to interfacing the microcontroller with the outside world, gathering data through sensors such as motion detectors, temperature sensors, infrared range finders, etc. The microcontroller and the data from the sensors is used to control actions through motors, stepper motors, relays, solenoids and other actuators. Learning occurs through building projects to achieve specific kinds of results.
Prerequisite: Electronics I or equivalent experience with approval of the instructor.
Trimester Elective, Winter Trimester
