Objectives
Recently, as the feature size of semiconductor technology keeps on decreasing, the speed performance and the power consumption are being enhanced in the digital circuits. However, the performance of analog circuits suffer in the state-of-the a art semiconductor technology because of the reduced supply voltage. Digital circuits are widely to enhance the performance of analog circuits with a relatively simple circuit. In this regard, this class introduces an oversampling analog circuits using DELTA-SIGMA modulator to extract the high-performance from a simple analog circuit in the state-of-the art technology.

Prerequisite and Compulsory
EECE569 Analog Integrated Circuits

Grading
Homeworks & Presentation (95%), Attendance(5%)

Around one homework each chapter, student present HW.

Homework mostly consists of design and simulation works.

Objectives
-In the near future, each automotive vehicle will be a unique node in the global communications network. The networks, in turn, will support interactions with the surrounding environment, over conventional communications systems and directly with nearby vehicles. With the rapid penetration of wireless technologies changing the way we communicate with each other and receive information, people will come to expect the same ubiquitous access inside their vehicles in ways that improve their driving safety and comfort. Enabling vehicles to communicate for safety and information, i.e., telematics applications , represent new opportunities (and challenges) for revenues for the services operators and equipment manufacturers.

-Providing automotive users with safety and information services in diverse, high-speed, mobile environments poses some of the most daunting technological challenge This class will address key issues related to how such a vast service and network system can be scaled, supported, in a reliable and economical fashion. Important issues are the maturity of the technology, the value of the services performed, the business models and rationale for creating such networks in the first place, and the complex regulatory regime and standards that must be established. Using vehicular telematics applications as an example, this class will go through “technology transfer, evaluation, implementation and commercialization” step by step.

-At the end of this class, students will be not only equipped with necessary engineering knowledge & marketing insight, but also basic business skills to create a business plan for a high tech start-up in the area of vehicular telematics technologies & services. The students could be able to either prepare a technical paper which is ready for submission (to the IEEE conferences), if he (she) chooses to do technical project, or a sound business plan to look for necessary angel funding (to start a high-tech startup), if he (she) chooses to do business project.

Prerequisite and Compulsory
- A course on telecommunications or computer networks

Grading
This is a graduate-level course. All students will be expected to actively participate in the class discussions. Each student will be assigned to present one or two papers (suggested by the instructor) in each class during the entire semester. Students will need to present his (her) final term paper (for those students who choose the technical track) or business plan (for those students who choose the business track) in the class before the end of the semester.

The grade for each student will be based on:

40% - Students’ participation-level

60% - Final term paper or business plan



Class Materials
- Set of slides with related journal/conferences papers and technical reports will be used.

  1. -  - Two DVDs on “Pirates of Silicon Valley” (Bill Gates and Steve Jobs) and “The Social Network” will be shown separately in two of the classes first, followed by brain storming & discussion among all students
  2. -    - “Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive: Outsell, Outmanage, Outmotivate and Outnegotiate Your Competition (By Harvey Mackey)

    - A few business case studies  related to entrepreneurship business models, leadership, evaluations and IPRs Management will be discussed in this course
