CSEE 2220. Fundamentals of Logic Design.
This course serves as a cornerstone for the learning of logic design by covering both digital and computer design, featuring a strong emphasis on fundamentals underlying contemporary design. Topics will include digital system and information, combinational logic circuits and design, arithmetic functions, sequential circuits, selected design topics, register and register transfers and memory basics.
CSEE 4270. Design of Digital Systems.
In this course students will learn the building blocks of digital systems and design methods to construct combinatorial and sequential circuits through the use of hardware description language (HDL) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA).
CSEE 4280. Advanced Logic Design.
Introduction to a basic understanding of how microprocessors work. Students will learn the tools and techniques necessary to construct a toy processor on a FPGA board.
Miniature pressure sensors, accelerometer chips, rate gyroscopes, tiny fluidic systems for medical applications and drug delivery, stamp-sized opto-mechanical assemblies and displays, and tiny portable power generators are all examples of microelectromechanical devices (MEMS). Designing and building this class of sensors and actuators require an interdisciplinary knowledge ranging from microfabrication to mechanics to electromagnetism. This class presents an introduction to the broad field of MEMS, using examples and design projects drawn from real-world MEMS applications. Lectures during the first 2/3 of the term will cover material properties, microfabrication technologies, structural behavior, sensing techniques, actuation schemes, fluid behavior, simple electronic circuits and feedback systems. Student teams will design a complete microsystem along their interests to meet a set of specifications based on realistic microfabrication processes. Modeling and simulation in the design process is emphasized.
FRES 1020. Confession of a Technoholic: The Sci&Tech Behind Next-Generation Electronics.
This is a course for students who would like to gain more insight into how scientific principles are applied to develop the technologies that affect their everyday lives. By developing the underlying physics at an elementary level, the principles of operation of a variety of technologies will be explained, including: computer displays, information transmission via electromagnetic waves, global positioning system (GPS), CDs and DVDs, computed tomography (CAT scanning), ultrasonic pulse-echo and Doppler blood flow imaging, photolithography, Ipods and Flash Media, Flat Screen TVs, solar cells, Flexible Displays/Printable Electronics, and Smart Textiles. Examining the basic principles involved in such applications gives insight into the promises and limitations of these technologies for the future.
UGA STEM office – Nanotechnology Lab Manual Development. (2009-2010)
Nanotechnology is expected to be one of the major driving forces for US economy. It is imperative to educate a new generation of students and provide them with the skills necessary to actively participate in this technological revolution. Currently, formal nanotechnology training takes place mainly at the graduate student level. There is clearly a national need to provide nanotechnology-related training at the undergraduate level across STEM disciplines. In order to prepare UGA’s undergraduate students for future careers in nanotechnology, new, effective and innovative approaches have to be
developed and employed. We developed a nanotechnology lab manual for undergraduates thanks for the support from UGA’s STEM office. [Manual Download]
