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. 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 and has evolved into several specialised areas and offer career opportunities such as in the assembly and wiring of electronic products; designing of prototype circuits to specifications and/or to solve specified technical problems; 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
      • Translate the design to printed circuit board for fabrication using commercial software
    • 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.
