  • Transistor-Level Design of Analog-to-Digital Converter (VLSI Circuit Design)

    Architect/Designer of Register Memory Unit (Array of D Flip-Flops) Designed Consisted of 4 Subsystems • Sampling Subsystem (samples a fraction of the period of the max frequency) • Comparator Array Subsystem (discriminates among voltage levels) • Output Binary Number Generator (converts output to 2’s complement code) • Output Register Array (saves the last two sample values) The objective of this project was to generate a transistor level design for a flash A-D (analog-to-digital) converter. The design is to be simulated at the transistor level. Criteria is to have high maximum sampling rate, and a high number of bits of resolution. Individual unit testing of each of the 6 subsystems in final design. The A-D converter was applied to an input signal that varied between –1.5 and 1.5 volts. To simplify the design, transformations of the signal to other ranges of voltage values was performed without the need for electronics, i. e., the transformation accomplished by adding a DC offset to input signal values (in the simulations). The digitally encoded value of each voltage sample appeared on the output of our system in the form of a 2’s complement code. Assuming that the input signal is band-limited with some maximum frequency component. There was 2 voltage samples for each period of the maximum frequency component, in accordance with the Nyquist criterion for sampled systems. The output 2’s complement code appeared twice each period of the maximum signal frequency. The control signals for a sampling circuit was generating externally. The Output Register Array served as a memory unit to save the last two sample values outputted from the Encoder.

  • Thought-Controlled All-Terrain Vehicle

    Embedded Systems Programmer Implemented a thought-controlled vehicle which responds to brain activity and makes movement as a function of electrical activity in the brain. Using mind-wave bluetooth headset which reads brain activity (electrical signals in brain such as Alpha, Beta and Gamma, etc. waves) and manipulated that data to navigate vehicle using just our thoughts. Literally Star Trek type technology! Tools/Technologies Used: • GitHub • C Language • Xcode IDE • AVR Microcontroller For our complete project source-code please visit our github:
