The structured laboratory segment will count for 50% of the total grade, based on completion of, and oral examination over, the weeklyexercises with each student quizzed individually. Labs are worth 10 points, usually with 1 point for prelab completion, 4 points forworking code, and the remaining 5 points for quiz performance. We emphasize that grading in this class is based heavily on yourdemonstration of course material, rather than exams or submitted assembly code.

The project will count for 50% of the total grade, with 20% of the total grade dependent on technical work on and oral demonstration ofthe project, and 10% of the grade dependent on the completeness and quality of the design review, 10% for the final report and 5% each onproject labs.

It is expected that each student will attend and participate in scheduled class and laboratory meetings and report on progress, orwill make prior other arrangements with the instructor or teaching assistants. The final grade may be penalized if this doesnot occur.


All graded assignments, including prelab exercises, DSP code, and final project materials, must be submitted to receive agrade in the course. All assignments other than the final report and presentation are due at the start of your scheduledlaboratory meeting. You must have your code complete before the class begins on the day the lab will be quizzed. Wereserve the right to consider code late if it is not complete before the start of the lab session in which it is due. Alate penalty of 50% will be assessed for assignments less than a week late, and no credit will be given for assignments morethan one week late. In addition to these policies, the final project abstract and project proposal must be submitted andapproved before project labs or project work are accepted for grading. Similarly, the design review must be passed beforedemonstration, report submission, or grading of the final project is allowed.


All lab quizzes must be taken during the lab on the day the lab is due. You must take the quiz during your assignedlaboratory period even if your lab assignment is not complete. Any quiz not taken during its assigned laboratory period willbe assigned a zero grade unless other arrangements are made in advance with your section's teaching assistants or ProfessorBressler. Exceptions to this policy will be granted only for excuses recognized by the College of Engineering.

One handwritten study sheet is allowed per quiz. Feel free to include any information you feel wouldbe useful.

Lab use

We will meet in the lab for two hours during the week at the assigned times. Because completion of yourlab assignments will probably require additional lab time outside of thescheduled hours, you will be able to access the lab at any time during the semester using a keycard. Those students whocurrently have keycards should already have their cards activated for the DSP lab. If you are registered for theclass and do not have a keycard, please request one in room 153 EL.

Basic rules of courtesy must be followed when in the lab. Please do not remove any lab equipment, books or manuals fromthe lab at any time. Do not bring food or drink into the lab. If you would like to listen to music as you work, pleaseuse headphones.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
