EDGE™ What are the key considerations? Bandwidth, frequency response, rf to dcBandwidth, frequency response, rf to dc Impedance matchingImpedance matching Low Voltage to High CurrentLow Voltage to High Current Low Voltage to High VoltageLow Voltage to High Voltage Low Current to High CurrentLow Current to High Current Low to Current to High VoltageLow to Current to High Voltage Circuit protection electronicsCircuit protection electronics –Surge protection techniques –Debugging can become somewhat frantic with a potential for shorting or over powering. Though electronic devices may be inexpensive, the re-ordering time and re-soldering takes time.
EDGE™ When is this needed? Senior Design I – –Phase 3 Detail Design wks 5-11 – –Phase 1 Concept Development wks 3-7 "Fail Often, Fail Fast, Fail Cheap"Lab feasibility "Fail Often, Fail Fast, Fail Cheap" – –(i.e. evaluation, characterization, shortfalls) Senior Design II – –Pre-integration testing with lab equipment DUT (device under test). Wks 3- 6
EDGE™ 1. 1.Review various manufactures specification sheets when considering output devices. 2. 2.Timing of data, enables, select lines, etc. 3. 3.Current (i.e. CMOS versus TTL ) needs, sink, source or both Vdd/Vcc 4. 4.Control Voltage (Vdd vary from 1.5 VDC to 12 VDC typically) 5. 5.Frequency Response 6. 6.Heat and EMI Noise 7. 7.Apply to Thevenin Equivalent Circuits – –Source electronics – –Device being driven – –RLC loads (& potential for dangerous current and voltage spikes) Engineering Specifications

EDGE™ Too often the interfaces are not considered until Senior Design II once integration begins. – –DO IT NOW and order your “debug” supplies along with your other components. Passive Devices: Harnesses (& cables) connectors Test points Discrete LEDs Active Devices: Interface Devices Power On/Off, Reset and Safety Switches Power Reset Switch, Sample Select Switch USB, RS232, Ethernet (may not need the form factor) Accessory power connectors Removable AC power cord Practical Design Considerations
EDGE™ Practical Harness Considerations 1. 1.Current, Voltage Needs Gauge of wire, insulation 2. 2.Use and Abuse Connect/ disconnect needs Routing, protecting Mounting, vibration and stability Gold versus Tin; environment, corrosion, current rating Instrumentation quality for long life 3. 3.Color Coding for ease in Debug and future use. As an example; 1. 1.Red Vcc/Vdd 2. 2.Black Grd/ Vss 3. 3.Org for signal 4. 4.Fabricating: Harness board and nails
EDGE™ Example of Driver Circuit Driver Circuit – Opto 22 ODC5Driver Circuit – Opto 22 ODC5 –See diagram below for application. –Output Device – 2.5a, 50 vdc Inductive Load
EDGE™ BOM misc: Connectors/ Pins Add all needed I/O connectors to your schematic(s). 1. 1.Connect/ disconnect needs – screw terminators, push type 2. 2.Major Manufactures: Amp, Molex 3. 3.Location – –between assemblies – –interface to other projects (collaborate with other teams) – –instrumentation 4. 4.Get crimp compatibility to pin manufacturers (style and gauge). 5. 5.Pins: crimp versus solder 6. 6.Current rating rule of thumb is 10x. i.e. 100 ma purchase 1 amp pins 7. 7.Types; ribbon, D shell, PCB mount
