Title of project: End-to-End Electronic Communication System
No. of Weeks (hours) for Internship: Equivalent of four weeks (a total of 160 hours) to submit the project. The hours
include the time you spend on the project in the lab, in the library, or at home to prepare, or write the project report. It also
includes the time to design build the required electronic circuits on the breadboard, test, solder if necessary, perform the
experiments, and write the report.
Mentor: Dr. Ali Kujoory, [email protected]
Proposed Project duration: Six weeks to submit the project (Monday, 6/3/2013 to Friday, 6/28/2013)
Main Lab: Salazar 2003
Lab hours: 9 AM-5 PM Monday-Friday. Main hours when I will be available: 10 AM-2 PM
Project Objectives:
●
Learn some basics in electric and electronic circuits, units, and components.
●
Familiarize with some lab equipment and measurement devices.
●
Familiarize with protoboard and soldering.
●
Learn communication system, the communication blocks including the transmitter, channel, and the receiver.
●
Design, test, perform experiments, and make measurements on wired and wireless communication systems.
●
Learn how write and a report.
Project Description: This project will provide the intern who is interested in electrical engineering to learn about
electronic communication systems. It involves an end-to-end electronic communication system, how a sender can transmit
a signal to a receiver over a communication channel, the major communication blocks, how these operate to manipulate the
signal, how to transfer the signal over the channel, the effect of noise, and how to increase the signal to noise ratio as much
as possible. Various channels based on wire, fiber, and wireless channels are examined. The project will allow the student
to get hands-on experience with major electronic power supply, measurement, and test equipment such as signal generators,
DC power supplies, multimeter, oscilloscope, and protoboard, as well as electronic components such as resistors,
capacitors, coils and antennas, diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits in the Electronics Lab at the Engineering Science
Department. The student can also learn how to trouble shoot an electronic circuit and how to solve the problem.
Log Book: Please bring a notebook with grid paper with you to the lab to be able to log your notes, measurements,
diagrams, observations, references, questions/answers. Make sure to jot down the dates for each day and names of the
contacts or person in the case of the meetings. Logbook can provide a good resource when you want to write your report as
it provides a sequential gathering of your notes and observations. For the circuit diagrams of your design work, I can check
the diagram and sign it for you.
Project Report: A short report (15-20 pages) is required at the end of the internship. The report in format includes:
abstract, outline, introduction, system design, results, your observations, conclusions, and appendixes. It explains the
project, the circuit diagrams, the experiments, the measurements and the test results, your observations, and the references.
Main Work Items & Tentative Schedule: To help you plan to do the project in a timely manner, I have listed the task
items and estimated the number of hours you need to do those tasks in the table below. Based on your availability and
considering the number of hours you need to spend on each task, please add the tentative due date for each task. With this
you can do the project and also plan for other things you want to do to enjoy your time this summer.
