Design of a Low Power, High Performance Track-and-Hold Circuit in a 0.18µm CMOS Technology (Electronics Project)

This study describes the design of a track-and-hold (T&H) circuit with 10bit resolution, 80MS/s and 30MHz bandwidth. It is designed in a 0.18µm CMOS process with a supply voltage of 1.8 Volt. The circuit is supposed to Continue reading

Evaluation of European SRAM-based FPGA Using the ESA VHDL IP-Core Library (Electronic Space Project)

Microelectronics have at all times been a complicated area in space technology, the radiation environment have always created heavy restriction. This is still true today, but development of new and better devices has steadily opened up this field for new applications.

FPGAs have been used in space for some time now, but that is mostly One-Time Programmable devices. Only a few reprogrammable FPGA have flown on real space missions, but in the near future this technology can Continue reading

PIC Based Automatic Solar Radiation Tracker for Maximum Solar Energy

The following document details the research and evelopment of an Automatic Solar radiation tracker. Fossil fuels are a relatively short-term energy source; consequently, the uses of alternative sources such as solar energy are becoming more wide spread. To make solar energy more viable, the efficiency of solar array systems must be maximized. A feasible approach to maximizing the efficiency of solar array systems is sun tracking. Proposed in this report is a system that Continue reading

Novel Application of Diffractive Optical Elements in Optical Systems

Dammann proposed the special type of diffraction grating which is periodic in nature together with binary phase for achieving a high splitting ratio. Later on, researchers proposed different kinds of methods for improving the performances. Dammann Gratings can be used in many areas, and in this project, we aim to Continue reading

Voice recorder using ADC and Microcontroller

Create a voice recorder using a PIC or a microcontroller and ADC. Use some conditioning circuits to condition the microphone output and feed it to the ADC. The converted values can be stored in some kind of memory. Samsung has some nice memory chips that can be easily interfaced. Most modern MP3 players use this kind of memory. Continue reading
