Course Schedule

Projects will consist of analytical problems, design problems, as well as our final design project. Lectures will closely correspond to the projects that we are working on that week. The projects center on experiments to be compiled and measured on custom Field Programmable Analog Arrays (FPAA) that have been invented at Georgia Tech after many years of research into analog circuit and signal processing.

Reference Materials on FPAA devices

Additional reference materials of Ph.D. theses that might have useful information related to this course. Partially, I want to be transparent of what I have been working on (and you can see an ancient document what I might have done in the far past), as well as some chapters are potentialy useful reading on certain subjects and I'll point that out where useful.
