BIOE 313: Neuromorphics: Brains in Silicon (EE 207)
(Formerly
EE 304) Neuromorphic systems run perceptual, cognitive and motor tasks in realtime on a network of highly interconnected nonlinear units. To maximize density and minimize energy, these unitslike the brain's neuronsare heterogeneous and stochastic. The first half of the course covers learning algorithms that automatically synthesize network configurations to perform a desired computation on a given heterogeneous neural substrate. The second half of the course surveys systemonachip architectures that efficiently realize highly interconnected networks and mixed analogdigital circuit designs that implement area and energyefficient nonlinear units. Prerequisites: EE102A is required.

EE 155: Green Electronics (EE 255)
Many green technologies including hybrid cars, photovoltaic energy systems, efficient power supplies, and energyconserving control systems have at their heart intelligent, highpower electronics. This course examines this technology and uses greentech examples to teach the engineering principles of modeling, optimization, analysis, simulation, and design. Topics include power converter topologies, periodic steadystate analysis, control, motors and drives, photovoltaic systems, and design of magnetic components. The course involves a handson laboratory and a substantial final project. Formerly

EE 169: Introduction to Bioimaging
Bioimaging is important for both clinical medicine, and medical research. This course will provide a introduction to several of the major imaging modalities, using a signal processing perspective. The course will start with an introduction to multidimensional Fourier transforms, and image quality metrics. It will then study projection imaging systems (projection XRay), backprojection based systems (CT, PET, and SPECT), systems that use beam forming (ultrasound), and systems that use Fourier encoding (MRI).
