The second design-implement subject in the Telecom-BCN electrical engineering curricula is described. The students design and build a block of a complex ICT system from its specifications, but knowing the characteristics of the whole system. The different blocks should be representative of the four majors of our curricula (electronics, audiovisual systems, networks and communication systems). We developed a strategy to run simultaneously four different project parts with initially mixed students. The topic chosen for this year is a component of an in-home audio system, the students should design and build a D-class amplifier and characterize and improve the amplifier-loudspeaker response.
