Stuart's Internship on Energy Harvesting30th September 2011
This summer, one of our undergraduate electronic engineering students, Stuart Barrow, worked with me for three months on the pioneering EPSRC-funded project on "Next Generation Energy-Harvesting Electronics - A Holistic Approach". Stuart developed an ultra low-power system that analyses vibrations and transmits them wirelessly. The photo shows Stuart testing his system on a car engine - the hardware on the engine is detecting vibrations, processing them, and transmitting them wirelessly to a lap... [more]
D4 2010 (POLARIS): Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes14th April 2010
This year's D4 System Design Exercise presented a particularly testing challenge to second-year Electronics students, who worked in teams to design and build a portable Mixed Signal Oscilloscope in 11 days. Teams were given precise specifications, for example, the device had to feature 8 digital channels and 1 analogue, have a graphical display, be portable and robust, and able to operate in the field. Pressure on the students was intense as they worked round the clock to design their oscillosco... [more]
