Prof
. Khaled Mayyas:


1.
Software Radio

(Gone)
: Students will implement a software radio system that
supports AM and FM signals reception, and
possibly also demodulates a digitally modulated signal. (2 students)


Prerequisite: Digital Signal Processing knowledge.


2.
Subband Coding of Speech Signals
: Subband coding of speech or audio signals is as a we
ll
-
known method that is used in
many audio or speech algorithms to reduce bit rate transmission of signals. Students will implement this system and test it a
gainst
the ordinary PCM coding for speech signals. (2 students).


Prerequisite: Digital Signal Pro
cessing knowledge.


3.
Speech Recognition
: Students will build a speech recognition system for a couple of well
-
known words based on a speech
modeling technique. (2 students).

1.


Radiation hazards of cellular telephones

(Gone
)

The student will study and understand the nature and effects of the waves radiated by the cellular telephones on the human be
ing
as well as on other electronic equipment. The student will make a design to reduce the adverse effects of this harmful
radiation.


2.


Electromagnetic pulse

The student will study and understand the concept, generation, and effects, and protection against the electromagnetic pulse.

Then,
he should design structures for protection against the pulse.


3. Noise Filter
Design and Implementation
: Design and implement of a filter to suppress harmonics on home and office wirings.

Design of a submarine optical fiber cable
(Gone)

Submarine optical fiber cables make the backbone of the international
telephone and internet networ
ks. Hundreds of such cables
are

laid in all the oceans of the earth in the last twenty years. In this project, the students are required to study the types a
nd
specifications of these ca
b
les and then design a specific cable giv
en certain
requirements
. The performance of the cable is to be
tested using available softwares such as optiwave
.

.

Design of a clock recovery circuit for optical receivers

(Gone)

Optical receivers operating at Gb
/s rates need very precise clock recovery circuits. The students have to study the different types
of clock recovery circuits and then required to design a clock recovery circuit for 10 Gb/s data stream.


3
.

Gaussian random number generator using central
limit theorem

Gaussian random number generators are used in a very wide range of a
pplications and particularly in

the simulation of
communication systems. The students have to study the different methods used to generate such
Gaussian

random generator and
then w
rite a program
for the proposed generator based on central limit theorem.


Dr. Majid Khodier

1. Ultra wide band radar system

Project will involve designing, prototyping and constructing of subdevices such as antennas, UWB low noise RF amplifiers,
UWB
power amplifiers, pulse forming networks, switches, broadband couplers, ultra fast digitizers etc.

2. Multilayer dielectric filter design and optimization

3. A wideband FM microwave transceiver

4.

Prof. Nihad Dib

Title: Design and analysis of a specific antenna type for wireless communications
.


Description: The students (2 students as one group) will pick a specific type of antenna (e.g., Yagi
-
Uda,
Log
-
period
ic, microstrip,
helical, spiral

...)

and study it. They will need to learn how to design, analyze, build, and measure

the antenna. The project
involves using EM softwares, like HFSS and/or IE3D.

It is preferable that the students have studied (or

are studying this

semester)
EE 407, and EE 528

1.

Code Excited Linear Predictive Coding

(CELPC),
(two students)


The code division multiple access (CDMA) cellular system uses a voice coder
called Code Excited Linear Predictive
Coding (CELPC). By using this type of voice coder, the coding rate is significantly reduced (in comparison with standard
pulse code modulation coder) which results in lower bandwidth in order to increase the system cap
acity. In this project,
this type of voice coder (transmitter and receiver) is to be implemented on

the TMS320C6713 digital signal processing
kit (DSK).

Prerequisite: DSP Lab. (EE 462)


2.

Regular Pulse Excited Linear Predictive Coding

(RPELPC),
(two
students)


The "Global System for Mobile communications" (GSM) cellular system uses a voice coder called Regular Pulse Excited
Linear Predictive Coding (RPELPC). By using this type of voice coder, the coding rate is significantly reduced (in
comparison wit
h standard pulse code modulation coder) which results in lower bandwidth in order to increase the system
capacity. In this project, this type of voice coder (transmitter and receiver) is to be implemented on

the TMS320C6713
digital signal processing kit (D
SK).
