Drilling, Benjamin Joseph Erickson, Blake Walter How close is the use of photovoltaics as being economically viable? Erickson, Joseph Phillip Ettl, Adam Elliot Fadyak, Nickolas Adam Describe the different technologies and structures of photovoltaic arrays. Provide comparisons. Fanning, Ben Scott Felton, Christopher Lee Fondevilla, Jaciel Ian Puertollan Discuss the key technical issues in the Microsoft Antitrust case. Garrett, Thomas D. Gierczic, Richard James Glass, Luke Morgan Describe the physics behind the use of III-V materials as opposed to Si. Goffinet, Shawn Steven Gores, Timothy Alan Gowreesunker, Baboo Vikrham Ge was originally used in transistors but then was superceded by Si. Ge is now emerging as an Hackbarth, Alan Lee interesting material for devices. Why? Discuss the devices and performance attributes. Halvorson, Joshua James Harp, Victoria Kathryn How does a DVD work? What are the differences between a CD and DVD? What similar technologies Haselbauer, Joseph David are in development? Haselman, Jonathan Thomas Haugen, Joel Arthur How does a color LCD display work? Haworth, Justin Christopher Hayes, Justin Bryant Huynh, Thai Thien How does the GPS satellite system provide position information? Jackson, Lucas Gerald Jenkins, Christopher Michael Johnson, John Clifford What is meant by spread spectrum technology? Where is it used? What are the advantages and Jones, Jason Chasse disadvantages? Judson, Nicholas Paul Kardelis, Daniel Leonard How does a CD audio player work? In doing so, provide an overview of sampling. Karls, Geoffrey Scott Karyah, Albert B. King, Jonathon Marshall What is your vision of the textbook in 10 years? Provide technical support for your predictions Knoepke, Benjamin Lee Kolz, Justin L. Kompelien, Jacob Brian Besides LCD displays, what other options exist or are being explored for flat panel displays? Krause, Andy Scott Provide pixel descriptions and compare. Kroeger, Michael Leonard Krosch Jr., Eldon J. (Donny) SPICE is now the circuit analysis program of choice. Why? What are the advantages and disadvantages Larsen, Stephen Michael of SPICE. What are some alternative simulation approaches? Litwinczuk, Stefan Alexander Long, Matthew John How good are speech recognition systems? Where are we now and where will we be likely in ten years? Louis, Kyle Joseph Maki, Kevin John Markie, Jerry Vernon Bioengineering is a developing field. What are some of the topic areas associated with this discipline? Martinson, Robert A. McGowan Sean Michael Meyers, Patrick Michael Fuzzy logic and digital logic each have strengths and weaknesses and areas of best application. Provide Michog, Andrew Douglas a comparison of some of these applications and explain why either fuzzy or digital logic would work best. Nelson, Erik Eugene Netzel, Timothy Brian Why is power system stability an issue in the utility industry? Define the terms and discuss what is being Neumann, Christopher Jason done to improve power system stability. Provide some classic examples of failures. Nguyen, Hai Tan Nordgren Eric Daniel Safety is in issue in attaching electronic systems to the human body. What are the standards and discuss Nordgren, Kirk David some technolgical approaches to minimizing hazards. Ogrodnik, Samuel Robert Paton, John Robert What are some of the circuit techniques used to monitor signals generated by physiological processes in Pavek, R.
