Final Report

Video Lecture

Video, Slides

Description:

The Final Report Guidelines are the primary reference document for this assignment.

Requirements and Grading:

The Final Report is held to professional standards of language and format and is evaluated by staff in the ECE Editorial Services, who also check theses and dissertations for the department. The report is also evaluated for technical content and organization by the course staff. The Grading Rubrics are available for both English/Formatting and Technical Content, but here are some pointers:

  1. If you didn't click the link above, the Final Report Guidelines should be your first stop.
  2. Use a template to help get the formatting right (Microsoft Word template or LaTeX template).
  3. Since your Final Report is similar in purpose to a thesis, you may find the Thesis Writing Guidelines helpful for style and formatting.
  4. For citations, you may also find the IEEE Citation Reference guide useful.
  5. Please note the maximum number of pages (20) allowed for the final report. You will be penalized for going over the maximum number of pages and/or not following the prescribed format.
  6. Submission and Deadlines:

    The Final Report document should be uploaded to My Project on PACE in PDF format by the deadline on the Calendar.

Logic Circuit Teaching Board

Featured Project

Partners: Younas Abdul Salam, Andrzej Borzecki, David Lee

The proposal our group has is of creating a board that will be able to teach students about logic circuits hands on. The project will consist of a board and different pieces that represent gates. The board will be used to plug in the pieces and provide power to the internal circuitry of the pieces. The pieces will have a gate and LEDs inside, which will be used to represent the logic at the different terminals.

By plugging in and combining gates, students will be able to see the actual effect on logic from the different combinations that they make. To add to it, we will add a truth table that can be used to represent inputs and outputs required, for example, for a class project or challenge. The board will be able to read the truth table and determine whether the logic the student has created is correct.

This board can act as a great learning source for students to understand the working of logic circuits. It can be helpful in teaching logic design to students in high schools who are interested in pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Please comment on whether the project is good enough to be approved, and if there are any suggestions.
