Week 10

This past week was the final week of our REU program. On Monday I submitted the rough draft of my final project report. On Tuesday we had a practice poster session with a few other REU groups and then Wednesday afternoon it was time for the real thing. Overall, I thought the poster session went […]

Week 10

In the final week of the workshop, I put the finishing touches on my research poster and began to practice for my spoken presentation. The UNL College of Engineering hosted a practice research symposium on Tuesday, which was good practice for the following day. Wednesday’s official SRP symposium was great – I was able to […]

REU SRP Week 10

Week 10, 8/5-8/7. This was my last week at the Nimbus Lab, UNL, and Nebraska. I had a wonderful experience and my prototype actually worked! Jacob programmed it Monday and we finished building it Tuesday and tested it that night and got some sweet video footage. Tuesday morning, I participated in a practice poster session […]

REU SRP Week 9

Week 9, 7/29-8/2. This week was spent building the prototype! It is all starting to come together, but…… I had a huge misfortune this week when the last 3D printed part I needed failed overnight. It was in the middle of a 23 hr print when I went to lab at midnight to check in […]

Week 10

This was the final week of the REU summer experience. Over the weekend and on Monday, I was preparing and practicing my poster presentation. On Tuesday, we all got to practice our poster presentation. The symposium and banquet wrapped up the program on Wednesday. As I am traveling back, I realize that I am excited […]

Week Ten

Becoming a pilot may be one of the coolest things someone can do. I recently learned that some of our lab directors are also pilots and fly aircraft locally in Lincoln fairly often. While I already thought they were cool, the overall cool-factor certainly spike a bit. While I can’t fly planes (yet), this week […]


Departure day. I am so sad, yesterday I said goodbye to all my friends and Nimbus staff. All of us shared incredible moments and I strongly believe that our group “Unnmaned System” was the best ever. Especially, the Nimbus lab is AMAZING and I recommend all of you guys to apply for this program the […]

Week 9

During this week I continue with my investigation, this time on redundancy. I found a publication on the basic understanding on triple modular redundancy for FPGA -based computer systems. The basic idea is that TMR is when you have three processors working simultaneously, and their outputs have voters. The voters select the most popular output. […]

Week 8

During this week I clarified the topics of my investigation that were unclear. I investigated about the effects of single event burnout (SEB) and single event gate ruptures (SEGR). These effects mostly affect power MOSFETS. The main idea is when a high energy particle strikes a power MOSFET it alters the electric field at the […]
