About Electronics

Variety is the key to a successful career in electronics. Technicians and engineers are needed to operate specialist equipment in workplaces that will range from aerospace and the armed forces to the entertainment industry, robotics, education, health, and telecommunications, and even to design new products for consumers and industries. Technicians and engineers will need to understand detailed specifications and international quality standards and keep abreast of the latest developments in technology and the use of specialised tools. The electronics industry is very diverse; it has evolved into several specialisations and offers career opportunities such as in the assembly and wiring of electronic products; designing of circuits to specifications and/or customised requirements; programming the tiny computers (aka microcontrollers) that go into electronic products; installation and commissioning of equipment including the provision of customer support; among others.

The Challenge

Competitors are required to:
  • Design and assemble an electronic project:
    • Design:
      • Design an electronics circuit to a given specification
      • Use commercial software to design a printed circuit board (pcb) layout so the circuit can be fabricated
    • Assembly:
      • Assemble and test the fabricated printed circuit board (PCB) for the specified functionality
      • Integrate the assembled PCB into a mechanical assembly where necessary.
  • Design and complete an embedded software project using C programming language and STM32L0 series of microcontrollers:
    • Integrate the microcontroller with other electronic devices for a specified functionality
  • Test, locate and rectify faults in a given circuit.
