Request for Proposal #1:
Pulse-Width Modulator (PWM)

Date Assigned: Monday, September 3, 2001
Date Due: Monday, September 10, 2001

This request for proposal (RFP) is for a pulse-width modulator (PWM) for student use in control systems experiments. The specifications for the PWM are as follows. Team Management Roles: Assign the roles of Coordinator, Recorder, and Skeptic to team members in order from oldest to youngest for this project. You will rotate these roles in future projects.

Your team may want to refer to the steps in the engineering design process as you work on this problem.

Schedule: On Monday, September 10, each team should come to class with a written draft of a proposal that describes one or more potential solutions. We will discuss your proposals, and then each team will begin developing a prototype that demonstrates the feasibility of your design. After evaluating prototypes, teams will design "production models" that are suitable for use in the control systems lab.

September 21: Second DRAFT of proposal due.

Thank you and have fun!
