Thesis
Full-text available
This paper gives an overview of Power Line Communications(PLC) and the different prevailing standards in PLC. The implementation of an OFDM transmitter - receiver system using MATLAB and Xilinx ZYNQ has been covered in detail in this paper. Additional links for tutorials on Hardware in loop testing and hardware software co-design can be found withi...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present a vision of how a sequence of three embedded systems design courses currently being taught for computer engineering technology students will be adapted from a quarter based delivery to a semester based delivery. The conversion brings the opportunity to revise the course contents, platforms used and make changes that will pr...
Conference Paper
The objective of this paper is to present the outcomes of an embedded systems senior design capstone course offered for Computer Engineering Technology students. This course has being taught five times using the presented format. At every offering, slight modifications have been done in an attempt to improve the student's experience and engagement....
Conference Paper
A digital bandgap reference that provides a programmable reference voltage output is presented. It uses the same idea as an analog bandgap circuit except that the three operations of differencing, scaling and addition are done in the digital domain after converting the operands, the analog junction-diode voltages, into numbers. Digital signal proce...
Conference Paper

In this paper we present a vision of the sequence of three embedded systems design courses being taught for computer engineering technology students. The focus of these courses is to prepare strong students in both digital hardware design as well as embedded software design. The courses have been evolving from traditional delivery of the content to...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we will discuss the utilization of a set of waveforms derived from chaotic dynamical systems for compression and feature recognition in digital images. We will also describe the design and testing of an embedded systems implementation of the algorithm. We will show that a limited set of combined chaotic oscillations are sufficient to...
Article
Full-text available
Channel estimation based on superimposed training (ST) has been an active research topic around the world in recent years, because it offers similar performance when compared to methods based on pilot assisted transmissions (PAT), with the advantage of a better bandwidth utilization. However, physical implementations of such estimators are still un...
Conference Paper
The objective of the presented work is to have a complete system level Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing development platform where students both undergraduate and graduate can use it to explore and identify the different processing blocks available on modern communications systems. The platform will allow monitoring the inputs and outputs...
Conference Paper

Millennials are a generation of young people currently in training at universities and colleges, and entering the workforce. They have several characteristics that could potentially make them one of the most productive generations ever. On the other hand the concepts of sustainability and energy awareness are part of their vocabulary and most of th...
Article
Full-text available
Embedded systems design has been characterized by the combination of two basic design methodologies: Hardware and Software. In this work in progress we incorporated Agile Project Management methodologies to a Computer Engineering Technology senior capstone course on product ideation, prototyping, demonstration and final presentation. As students we...
Conference Paper
While the research into MIMO communications algorithms have reached levels of development that show important wire less systems performance improvements, the development of DSP systems to implement them has limited implementations to the simplest and least performing algorithms. This paper addresses this technological gap by studying how to design...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes a work in progress on a digital baseband communications development and teaching platform based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation. The objective of this platform is to allow undergraduate and graduate students at different levels in their engineering technology programs to interact with a complete...

The soft-input soft-output algorithm is used to iteratively decode concatenated codes. To efficiently implement this algorithm, an additive form in the logarithmic domain is employed. A novel analog implementation using CMOS translinear circuits is proposed. A multiple-input floating-gate CMOS transistor working in the subthreshold region is used a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We present the structure of an analog integrated circuit design laboratory to instruct at both, senior undergraduate and entry graduate levels. The teaching material includes: a laboratory manual with analog circuit design theory, pre-laboratory exercises and circuit design specifications; a reference web page with step by step instructions and exa...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We propose a structured methodology to extract the electrical parameters of floating gate devices. The characterization of a FG structure requires only two parameters in addition to the conventional MOSFET parameters. This additional set of parameters represents the charge on the FG and the total capacitive coupling of the FG with the control gate....

A new layout structure for floating gate MOS devices on top of an isolating n-well is proposed. The well provides the floating device with noise isolation from the substrate and can also be used as an additional input for threshold voltage control or signal modulation

Conference Paper
Full-text available
A frequency-domain scheme to share a communications channel among the cells of a CNN is proposed. The scheme is based on a modification of the wave-parallel-computing technique and addresses the problem of reducing the number of communication links. Reduction in the communication paths is achieved by frequency multiplexing. This makes it possible t...
