BE/EE/MedE 189 a: Design and Construction of Biodevices

Novel measurements often require novel instruments. In this course, you will learn how to build your own instruments using an Arduino platform. You will first learn basic principles of prototyping electronic instruments and will ultimately build, construct, test, and use a pulse oximeter and a cyclic voltameter. While these are not “new” instruments, the skills developed here will transfer to design and construction of your own biodevices in the future.

Students are responsible for reading the course policies.
