Course Description

This course contains some of the underpinning knowledge of a program, which designed for a person to be able to undertake design, select, install, commission, maintain and carry out repairs on advanced electronic equipment and systems.
The Knowledge and skills addressed in this course include hardware interfacing - interfacing microprocessors/micro-controllers to input & output devices and implementation hardware interfacing; use of different types of hardware and software tools/resources; and project management


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UTENES304CA Undertake commissioning of advanced systems & apparatus (Electronics)

Element:

Inspect and notify completion of work

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Final inspections and performance checks are undertaken to
ensure that the commissioning procedures of advanced system
and associated apparatus conforms to requirements
3.2 Commissioning results and work completion are notified in accordance with established
procedures

Element:

Plan and prepare to undertake commissioning procedures

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Commissioning procedures are planned and prepared to ensure
OH&S policies and procedures are followed, the work is
appropriately sequenced in accordance with requirements
1.2 Appropriate personnel are consulted to ensure the work is
coordinated effectively with others involved on the work site
1.3 Systems' commissioning procedures are checked against
requirements
1.4 Materials necessary to complete the work are obtained in
accordance with established procedures and checked against
requirements
1.5 Tools, equipment and testing devices needed to carry out the
commissioning work are obtained in accordance with established
procedures and checked for correct operation and safety
1.6 Preparatory work is checked to ensure no unnecessary damage
has occurred and complies with requirements

Element:

Undertake commissioning procedures of advanced systems and associated apparatus

Performance Criteria:

with established procedures


Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Participate in individual and team problem solving scenarios/ case studies dealing with a range of practical exercises related to:

· Analysis and design of combinational logic circuits

· Analysis and design of sequential logic circuits

· Programming CPLDs using WINCUPL

· Programming of Microcontroller peripherals

· Interface microcontroller to external hardware devices

· Plan, manage and evaluate projects2.

Participate in individual small research projects in designated areas of underpinning knowledge including:

· Microcontroller Architecture· Programming microcontrollers using C and assembly language

· Configuration of microcontroller subsystems

· Interfacing techniques3

Participate in supervised workshop practice in simulated workplace environment, including:

· Design and construction and testing of a microcontroller based hardware system that uses various microcontroller peripherals/systems i.e. SPI, SCI, Timers, etc. Specifications will be provided with work simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace based application.

· Development of testing procedure to verify the performance specification, diagnosis of faults in the systems and rectify the fault. Specifications will be provided

Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until further courses related to the competency are completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Progressive Written Assessment
• Written Assignments
• Scheduled Practical Exercises
• Work Simulation Projects
• Case Studies


Assessment Tasks

1. A practical assignment on combinational and sequential logic design

2. A project on design, construction and testing of a microprocessor based system

3. A final examination

4. Project report (compulsory)To pass this course, student must complete the project work to specifications, pass the written examination and submit a well documented project report.
