Automatic Load-Pull Tuner
This student team worked to build an automated load-pull tuner, a tool used for the RF engineers to characterize new transistors and test the performance of newly designed radio frequency (RF) Power-Amplifiers. The team designed a circuit (delivering the PCBA) with a control firmware and a graphical user interface (GUI) to acquire the required data and save them in the computer. The combination of PCBA, firmware, and GUI enables RF Engineers to deliver pulses, change the load to the amplifier, and acquire test data from an oscilloscope for their design analysis.
Developing a synthetic railbelt power system model
A team of electrical and chemical engineering graduate students on a capstone project focused on developing a synthetic power system model of Alaska’s Railbelt transmission system.
Third annual Boeing capstone
Students earned their wings during a spring quarter capstone project undertaken in partnership with Boeing. Fittingly, they worked on a novel design for a wingtip end cap that was produced using 3D printing.
Students design a rover to help fish
As part of an industry capstone project, engineering students created a rover to inspect sewer pipes and culverts for damage that may prevent fish migration.
