ObjectiveUltra Low Power Microcontroller (MCU) – Firmware Programming and Sensors Interfacing using an Arm Cortex-M (STM32) Microcontroller

Microprocessors are used to execute big and generic applications, while microcontrollers are low cost and low power embedded chips with program memory and data memory built onto the system which are used to execute simple tasks within one specific application (i.e. sensor devices, wearable systems, and IoT devices). Microcontrollers demand very precise and resource-saving programming, therefore it is necessary to know the processor core, and particular importance has the investigation of the microcontroller's hardware components (ADC, clocks, serial communication, timers, interrupts, etc.).

The STM32 from STMicroelectronics has gained in popularity in recent years due to its low power and ease of use. The goal of this course is the development of understanding the internal processes in the microcontroller chip from TI. This will enable you to conduct high-level-firmware-programming of microcontrollers, to learn about the STM32 MCU features, benefits, and programming and how they can be connected with sensors, acquire the data, processing them and send the information to other devices. The course will also include an introductive lecture on machine learning and artificial intelligence on the embedded system and in particular microcontrollers. The C language will be used to program the microcontroller.

The course will be taught in English.

ObjectiveAs everyday electronic circuits have transitioned into integrated circuits, they have become increasingly difficult to examine and tinker with. As a result, students become less exposed to basic analog electronic circuits and their fundamental operating principles. At university level, bachelor classes in analog circuits and electronics provide rigorous theoretical insights but are typically focused on linearised operating behaviour.

The goal of this lab course is for the students to enhance their understanding on how basic analog electronic circuits work, or perhaps don't work, and provide enough practical experience for the students to feel at ease using transistors, resistors, capacitances, diodes etc., to create working circuits.

For example, students create circuits that make physical quantities audible. Students are encourage to realise their own circuit ideas.

ObjectiveInvented in the 1980s in Zurich and awarded with a Nobel price, the atomic force microscope (AFM) has enabled us to visualize surfaces at the single atom level, and to measure single molecule and cell-cell interactions, deepening our understanding of material science and biology. This is enabled by controlling micromechanical piezo actuators with nanometer precision and processing noisy signals in order to achieve meaningful data.

In order to introduce you to the capabilities of modern AFMs in biomedical sensing, you will build your own setups in groups of two. You will be introduced to an AFM’s functionality, control, and signal read-out using LabView. A tuning fork signal will be used as the feedback for the self-built AFM. In order to better understand the working principle of a tuning fork, you will also build your own frequency sweeper and analyze it with self-built low-pass filters.
After you have implemented your own setup, you will have the chance to characterize different biomedical samples on state-of-the-art setups. This data will then be analyzed using Matlab.
The focus of this P&S seminar is to enable you to transfer your theoretical knowledge into practice and at the same time get to know how electrical engineering can be used in biomedical research.

The course requires active participation during the practical sessions, a 10-15 min presentation and a short written report on the acquired results. The course will be given in English.

ObjectiveA brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a communication and control channel based on the recognition of subject’s intention from spatiotemporal activity of the brain. A typical method to acquire neural activity signals is electroencephalograhy (EEG), which is often used in BCI. In order to make these data usable and get useful information out of them, signal processing techniques play a crucial role. Moreover, feature extraction and machine learning methods are applied to obtain a highly accurate BCI.
The aim of the Project and Seminars course is to give insights of signal processing and machine learning applied to brain-computer interfaces to undergraduate students, by having hands-on experience in brain signal acquisition, data processing, feature extraction, and machine learning.

ObjectiveTäglich sind wir mit digitaler Nachrichtenübertragung konfrontiert, sei es beim Fernsehen, beim Mobiltelefon oder bei der Internet-Nutzung. Um die Funktionsweise dieser Systeme kennenzulernen, sollen in diesem P&S-Kurs die Grundzüge der Digitalkommunikation vermittelt werden. Auf herkömmlichen PCs werden dazu selber geschriebene Software-Modems implementiert. Diese Modems bestehen genau wie die in der Wirklichkeit verwendeten digitalen Kommunikationssysteme aus einem Modulator, einem Demodulator und einem Algorithmus zur Synchronisation des Trägers der eintreffenden Nachricht. Einmal implementiert, können mit Hilfe dieser Modems akustisch beliebige Daten (z.B. kleine Textdateien) zwischen verschiedenen PCs übertragen werden.

Zum Programmieren wird MATLAB verwendet. MATLAB-Kenntnisse werden nicht vorausgesetzt. Vielmehr ist das Ziel dieses P&S-Kurses, neben dem Kennenlernen der Grundlagen der Digitalkommunikation auch das Programmieren mit MATLAB zu üben.

Die Daten der Nachmittage können der Bits on Air-Homepage entnommen werden.

ObjectiveDrahtlose Übermittlung von Informationen über Funk ist heute allgegenwärtig. Je nach Anwendung und Frequenzbereich werden dabei verschiedene Modulationsarten benutzt, wobei digitale Verfahren weitgehend die alten analogen Verfahren abgelöst haben.
Tools für Software Defined Radio (SDR) ermöglichen es, mit relativ kleinem Aufwand in diese Welt einzutauchen und “auf den Wellen zu surfen”. Durch schnellere Computer wird es möglich, dass immer komplexere Signalverarbeitung in Sendern und Empfängern auf einem Rechner erfolgen können. Dabei können die Algorithmen sehr flexibel und schnell angepasst und verändert werden.

In diesem P&S werden wir uns näher anschauen, wie dies funktioniert und was dahintersteckt. Dazu erarbeiten wir uns in einem ersten Teil Grundlagen zu Frequenzen, Spektren, Modulationsarten, Signalverarbeitung, u.s.w.

Im zweiten Teil werden wir in Gruppen verschiedene Projekte mit SDR-Tools erarbeiten. Dabei können auch eigene Ideen eingebracht werden. Am Schluss werden die Projekte in einer Präsentation den anderen Teilnehmern vorgestellt.
