INDUSTRY PROJECTS

1. “MIL-STD 1553 FPGA based Remote Terminal/Bus Control/Bus Monitor” funded by HEC under its UITSP

The project won an HEC – UITSP funded Rs. 4.3 Million project recently. That is 1st of its nature that will strengthen University – Industry Linkages. The objectives of the project are to relieve the nascent local avionics development industry of the dependence on foreign sources, to relieve the developers and users of avionics developers and users of avionics of the expensive interface modules and to earn foreign exchange by selling the IP core developed under the project to avionics developers abroad. The project has been completed and a prototype developed for field testing.

Industry Partner: NexTek Service, Islamabad, Pakistan
Funding Organization: Higher Education Commission
Funding Amount: Rs. 4.3M
Status: Completed
Completion Date: June 2008
Team: Dr. N.D. Gohar, Mr. Mahboob Ali (CEO NexTek Service), Mr. Bilal Saqib, Mr. Haroon Ghafoor (NexTek Service), Ms. Saba Zia, Mr. Idrees Shahzad (Nextek Service)

2. FPGA Based Portable Spectrum Analyzer

The aim of the project is to develop an FPGA Based Spectrum Analyzer that addresses the mobility and portability needs and is expected to provide a real time performance in terms of computational complexity. It is in collaboration with NexTek, Islamabad and it will ultimately be marketed as a cheap signal analysis gadget. For the start, the maximum bandwidth of 10 KHz is selected which will be later improved upon to 100 MHz and in the later stages till 200 MHz.

The offshoots of the project include having the first completely ‘made in Pakistan’ Oscilloscope in addition to a Spectrum Analyzer.
The utilities of the spectrum analyzer include the following:

Vibration Spectrum analysis in mechanical Testing
Video Spectrum Analysis for various defense and commercial applications
Spectral analysis of defense communications by Intel agencies
Lab usage by various universities and developers

Dr. N.D. Gohar visited Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden from 1st July - 3rd September 2008. This visit was carried out in relation with the project titled "Software Defined Radio (SDR) Development Using Network-on-Chip (NOC) Based Rapid Prototyping Platform (REXAPP)". The project is a joint venture of Group for Research in ASIC and FPGA (GRAF) at NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) and KTH, Sweden. The visit was carried out on invitation of Dr. Ahmed Hemani from KTH, Sweden. The main purpose for the visit was to chalk out the detailed specifications for the project and problem statements and course work requirements for the PhD students. The visit also paved way for further collaboration between the two universities and couple of other project proposals have been developed. Another positive outcome of the visit is the agreement between the two universities to start a joint MS program in System-on-Chip from next year. A proposal has also been developed for that for formal approval. Overall, the visit has been very productive and successful.
