Introduction to principles of electronic design. Reliability, compatibility, testability, safety. General design rules for professional electronic design with superior ratings in terms of high frequency and high current, immunity to a disturbance, low-level electromagnetic emission, etc. Miniaturization and cost minimization. Education of electronic design methodology in favour of creativity instead of specialization on specific devices and systems. Hands-on approach with aid of modern computer design tools.
