Summary: I worked for two years in the department of electronics and electrical engineering University of Leeds, where my first role was to implement Digital Signal Processing algorithms – i.e. digital filters, notch filters, adaptive filters and adaptive line enhancer – on Texas Instrument DSP processor TMS320C6713. I designed and tested these algorithms in Matlab/Simulink using Matlab ‘fdatool’ tool and ‘Simulink level-2 M file S-functions’. Then I wrote C/C++ language code to implement the algorithms on TMS320C6713 in real-time. In some algorithms, I needed to interface C code with Matlab code which I did using Matlab ‘External Interface’ utility.
I have been working on a research project for last two years – for PACE Technologies Ltd. – titled: “Impulsive Noise Mitigation for Broadband Powerline Communication Systems”. During this work, I studied and simulated two multicarrier communication systems i.e. IEE 802.11a and ITU G.hn over powerline channel models using Matlab and Simulink programming language. The main challenge – in this project – is to limit the degradation effects of impulsive noise on high rate communications over powerlines. I have identified and simulated six different methods to reduce the effects of impulsive noise over powerline communications and working on two new methods.
I always enjoy working in new programming languages environment and tend to grasp the language quite fast. Nowadays, I have been learning 'Symbian C language' for mobile phone application development which I found quite interesting. I am also reviewing SQL and relational databases. I am very confident that I am able to work in these environments. I also taught a course titled “DSP Hardware Implementation” to MSc students of “Embedded Systems” and “Optical Communications” in the Fall 2008 at University of Leeds. The teaching went very well and 80% of the students gave their feedback as ‘satisfied’. Beside that I have also been conducting labs on “Matlab as Technical Computing Tool” for the undergraduate students from 1st, 3rd year and MSc.
