Multicore, Multithreaded, Phase-synchronous Fm Sound Synthesizer

ABSTRACT

This project implements a phase-synchronous FM synthesis algorithm in hardware. Envelope and low frequency oscillator modulation of oscillator parameters is implemented. The microcontroller the system is based on, the XMOS XS1-G4, allows for Continue reading

Scaled Synthetic Aperture Radar System Development

ABSTRACT

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems generate two dimensional images of a target area using RF energy as opposed to light waves used by cameras. When cloud cover or other optical obstructions prevent camera imaging over a target area, SAR Continue reading
