To foster design innovation and creative thinking, a major part ofthe class grade is based on a design project. The idea of the project is to study one of the current "hot items" in DSP design and to propose, analyze and design a novel solution to one of those problems.The project is performed in person or groups of two and will span the complete semester. The course is graded on the basis of a final project. Given the link to present research activities we expect a number of projects will eventually be published in Conference Proceedings.
· WEEK 1-5: Literature Study (> 4 papers) - Formulation of Design Project

· WEEK 7-10: Design Execution.
· WEEK 11 (April 26): Posting of interim result report (Style and Guide)
· WEEK 12-15: Design Execution.
· WEEK 16(June 14): Presentation of Design Results (Style and Guide)
As the recurring themes of the class are low power and timing, it is encouraged to select the design projectin one of those topics. Especially recommended are projects that are relatedto Lower Power Design, as this is the special team of this semesters class. Other interesting topics are welcome as well. To give some initial guidance, a list of potential topic areas is given below.
