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 a highly(More)
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 as the(More)
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 examples;(More)
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 were going(More)
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 of every(More)
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 digital(More)
System on a Chip (SoC) is a concept that has been challenging the traditional design flow methodologies by: encouraging component reutilization; promote concurrent development; propose new design, verification and validation flows; encourage innovation; and enable multidisciplinary teams to work together. Rather than being a hard recommendation for an(More)
