NC State forms NSF-Funded Center for Advanced Electronics Through Machine Learning With UIUC and Georgia Tech
North Carolina State University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Georgia Tech are forming a center that aims to speed up design and verification of microelectronic circuits and systems, reducing development costs and time-to-market for manufacturers of microelectronic products, especially integrated circuits. The center is funded for five years through the National Science Foundation’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program, and by the industrial members of the center.
In a partnership melding neuroscience and electrical engineering, researchers from UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State University have developed a new technology that will allow neuroscientists to capture images of the brain almost 10 times larger than previously possible.
Researchers at NC State have developed an integrated, wearable system that monitors a user’s environment, heart rate and other physical attributes with the goal of predicting and preventing asthma attacks. The researchers plan to begin testing the system on a larger subject population this summer.
Victor Veliadis, a senior advisory engineer for Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems, has been named the chief technology officer for PowerAmerica, the public-private power electronics institute hosted on Centennial Campus.
Engineering researchers led by Dr. Paul Franzon, have developed a suite of techniques that allow them to create passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags that are 25 percent smaller and less expensive.
North Carolina State University researchers in ECE and Computer Science have developed and used a customized suite of technologies that allows a computer to train a dog autonomously, with the computer effectively responding to the dog based on the dog’s body language.
