The most difficult part of prototyping is not the building process, but the process of deciding how to build. If we choose the proper technology for prototypes, we can improve their robustness and simplicity.

This course will cover available and affordable technologies for ITP students to build prototypes. The course will start with soldering, wiring and LED basics. Then it extends to multitasking, signal processing, communication and advanced skills beyond PCom class.

Each session will have lectures followed by in-class practices with guidance.

Grading

The course is pass/fail for ITP students. The formula for determining the grade is:

  • 20% showing up
  • 40% participating and doing the in-class practice
  • 40% assignments

Feedback

Feel free to leave your feedback here or email Deqing at deqing.sun@nyu.edu.

It could be some topics you are interested in and wish to discuss in the class, for example, how to drive 100 motors with one Arduino? How the integrated chips (IC) are made? We’ll count how many students are also interested in the topic. If more than half, let’s make it as a special topic in the class. If not, we can talk about it in office hours.

Or it could be how you feel about the class. Want more in-class practice, more challenging?

Or anything you want to let us and/or the class know.
