Description Type Form Scope Grade Weighting
HW documentation in the first half of the semester report written   1 - 6 20%
Demo in order to verify the functionality of the HW demonstration oral about 10 minutes 1 - 6 10%
Demo in order to verify the functionality of the SW demonstration oral about 10 minutes 1 - 6 10%
SW documentation at the end of term electronic web ressource   1 - 6 20%
Presentation and demonstration of the prototype during the examination weeks presentation oral 2 * 10 minutes 1 - 6 40%


During the semester a prototype of an electronic device is built.
This module is held in English and accompanied by a communication lecturer. These skills contribute to the module grade with a weight of about 1/4.

Legal basis

The module description is part of the legal basis in addition to the general academic regulations. It is binding. During the first week of the semester a written and communicated supplement can specify the module description in more detail.
