I thought I'd create a post for everyone doing Higher engineering this year. How are we feeling about it? We started on Monday and have until the 26th to finish (due to the long weekend).

I personally find the first task quite hard especially the drawing of the MOSFET controlled motor - I tried it on Yenka and it wouldn't do anything.

Also task 3, on the pin table it says Pin 1 is the Set switch, and pin 2 is the release switch, but in both the circuit and the flowchart its the other way round. Is that intentional? The flowchart still works (with amendments but not to those components) perfectly fine.

And for the question where you pick the most suitable method for controlling the system in task 2 (microcontroller, NAND or logic) I put down microcontroller as it can be reprogrammable. Did anyone else do the same? Thanks

Any ideas on question 1a
I did >Error Detector (negative side to the feedback)>Control Unit>Output Driver > Motor>.
for the feedback, I put animal sensor but I may change it to motion.

One of the worksheets, 1a, has the input and output, and the arrows so you only have to fill in the rest. Ask your teacher maybe you weren't given it.

I can't quite remember. I remember switching Rf and Ri values in order for the output voltage being +2.5. I think I also switched the positions of the sensors which resulted in a positive output.

Hi everyone, just a reminder that the assignment should be completed independently, and working together on SQA coursework could result in you being penalised for collusion. It's totally fine to have a general discussion about the assignment, exam, topics you're struggling with, but I would advise against asking for help on (or sharing answers for) specific questions from the assignment.
