Wyglinski, Huang Receive Generous Gift from The MathWorks to Support SDR, FPGA Activities
ECE Professors Receive Research Gift
ECE Professors Alex Wyglinski and Xinming Huang have received a gift from The MathWorks, Natick, MA totaling $480,000 over three years in support of their research efforts into advancing the state-of-the-art in software-defined radio and embedded systems. This award will support Professor Wyglinski’s research efforts with respect to the development of algorithms and architectures for exploiting “signals of opportunity” by wireless communication systems based on software-defined radio (SDR) in order to support applications such as navigation and geo-location. Furthermore, Professor Huang’s research activities into the application of specialized microprocessors, such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), in computationally-intensive operations, such as video and image processing, using the Simulink software package will also be supported.
The MathWorks (http://www.mathworks.com/) is a leading developer of mathematical computing software used by engineers and scientists worldwide. More than 5,000 colleges around the world use MATLAB and Simulink for teaching and research in a broad range of technical disciplines. Overall, over 1 million individuals use the MATLAB software package since its founding in 1984.
