3 channel high pass filter amplifier circuit: Spring 2018

-In this project our ECE 202 team designed 3 amplifier circuits that would pass high frequencies when an AC signal fluxuates in the circuit.

-The circuit consisted of resistors, capacitors, NPN transistors, and PNP transistors.

- The function of these 3 identical amplifier circuits was to filter out low frequency noises, so the 3 speakers would be for treble. The other function of this circuit is to create a voltage gain from the input to the output terminal. RF Car Radar on a Board: Spring 2020

-This project will involve a car radar that will be a sensor for autonomous vehicles. The test board will be able to map objects using a phased array and will inform the user if there is an obstacle in the road.

-The radar will be able to map the distance and the angle from the normal of the board using a 2D array mapping and electromagnetic reflection. Topics in steering angle, beam width, null locations, beam tapering, grating lobes, and beam squint will be researched in order to optimize and learn functionality of a RF radar. Mode Division Multiplexer Wavelength Division Multiplexer Hybrid: December 2019

-This project will act as a filter that is capable of filtering out light from a laser source based on how many modes are in the waveguide in addition to using microring resonators which act as optical filter.

-The final chip design will include 1 mode division multiplexer, 6 microring resonators, 3 inputs, 3 outputs, and 6 through ports. This is achieved by gradually varying the width of the waveguide for the mode division multiplexer. This enables the modes to be filtered out. Microring resonators can filter out certain wavelengths by varying the waveguide width, gap, and ring radius.


Nelowet Business Machines, Denver, CO— Warehouse Associate 05/2017 to 08/2017
