Traditional spacecraft have been very expensive for a number of reasons, including their requirement for highly customized, niche radios. However, the field of inexpensive yet sophisticated commercial space missions is growing rapidly: smallsats and nanosats are no longer just university projects.

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the culmination of advances on several fronts, and is probably the most significant area of development in radio systems today. This talkwill introduce the concepts of (1) oversampling and undersampling as it applies to SDR, (2) correctly driving and implementing an A/D converter, and (3) the firmware and software portions of SDR. A comparison with state-of-the art conventional analog circuitry will be presented, along with a live demonstration of SDR.

This talk will describe the challenges engineers face in deploying Computer Vision on embedded platforms, and how every Computer Vision solution seems to require its own computationally demanding algorithm. It will also explore the opportunities ahead as low-cost embedded devices such as wearables promise a world full of vision-enabled devices.


Tuesday, Nov 4, 2014 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm          

Cell analysis is a bit like the air we breathe: nobody thinks about it much, but try taking it away and people take rapid notice. Without cell analysis, it would be impossible to perform blood counting - a routine diagnostic test performed about 300 million times a year worldwide. This talk will show how cell analysis is done today, and what exciting innovations are coming out that will revolutionize how it will be done tomorrow.
