Description of the Course

Danijela Cabric

Lecture, four hours; outside study, eight hours. Special topics
in one or more aspects of circuits and embedded systems, such as
digital, analog, mixed-signal, and radio frequency integrated circuits
(RF ICs); electronic design automation; wireless communication circuits
and systems; embedded processor architectures; embedded software;
distributed sensor and actuator networks; robotics; and embedded
security. May be repeated for credit with topic change. S/U or letter
grading.

About the Instructor
Danijela Cabric: Danijela Cabric received the Dipl. Ing. degree from the University of
Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1998, and the M.S. degree in electrical
engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2001. She
received her Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University
of California, Berkeley, in 2006, where she was a member of the
Berkeley Wireless Research Center. In 2001, she was with Innovics
Wireless, Los Angeles, where she worked as a Senior System Design
Engineer on the algorithm development for a dual-antenna WCDMA mobile
receiver. In 2004, she held an internship position with Intel
Corporation, Santa Clara, where she worked on the system design of a
cognitive radio in the UHF TV band. Her current research interests
include cognitive radio physical layer design and multiple-antenna
system implementation.
