Course detail

Microelectronic Practice

FEKT-BMEPAcad. year: 2018/2019

The lecture which essential acquaints students with specializate laboratories in Department of Microelectronics which will be used during study in higher years. The lectures includes,

1) Methodology of printed board design (classic and SMT) with respect on assembly techiques, system EAGLE presentation and practice work with it. Simply electronic circuit design.
2) Electronic circuit realization. Realization with handle soldering by industry technical documentation. Surface mount technology is used with lead free soldering.
3) Presentation and realization of simply tasks about insert and assembly techniques in electronic ( wave soldering, reflow soldering, solder paste application with stencil, dispenser and the others), presentation of printed board production.
4) Presentation and realization of simply tasks which concern assembly techniques in microelectronic (thin and thick layer technology, chip bonding technology, packaging technology), demonstration of laser techniques.
