Computer Science and Information Technology Grants Collections

This Grants Collection for Hardware and Software was created under a Round Eleven ALG Textbook Transformation Grant.

Affordable Learning Georgia Grants Collections are intended to provide faculty with the frameworks to quickly implement or revise the same materials as a Textbook Transformation Grants team, along with the aims and lessons learned from project teams during the implementation process.

Documents are in .pdf format, with a separate .docx (Word) version available for download. Each collection contains the following materials:

  • Linked Syllabus
  • Initial Proposal
  • Final Report


Exploration Of Audio Synthesizers, Timothy Lindquist Jan 2018

Exploration Of Audio Synthesizers, Timothy Lindquist

Creative Components

In this creative component, I explore how synthesizers originated as well as the various techniques available for complex signal generation. The primary synthesis techniques researched were Additive, Subtractive, Frequency Modulation, and Sample-Based Synthesis. After extensive background information was examined, a series of MATLAB scripts were created to verify the synthesis implementation and demonstrate understanding. Following this, I set out to design my own hybrid synthesizer using a combination of the various techniques learned. The synthesizer created is a polyphonic composition device capable of audio generation as well as audio manipulation. It demonstrates core principles from each of the researched techniques ...

Cloud Rtr: Cloud Infrastructure For Apps With Hardware, Ali Yasser Ismail Apr 2015

Cloud Rtr: Cloud Infrastructure For Apps With Hardware, Ali Yasser Ismail

Electrical, Computer & Energy Engineering Graduate Theses & Dissertations

There has been a great deal of innovation in the software space for smart phones, however, there has been virtually no room to innovate in the architecture space. By introducing a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) on mobile phone platforms, developers are able to produce hardware that their applications can use. We call re-programmable hardware on mobile phones mobware. In order to introduce mobware to mobile platforms, we leverage technology that contains a processor (ARM) coupled with FPGA so we can introduce reconfigurable logic to smart phones, expose the hardware to applications, and extend a mobile operating system to allow ...


Is Tech M&A Value-Additive?, Ani Deshmukh Nov 2012

Is Tech M&A Value-Additive?, Ani Deshmukh

Undergraduate Economic Review

Given rising M&A deal volume across all high-tech subsectors, the ability to measure post-acquisition performance becomes critical. Despite this growth, the relevant academic literature is severely lacking (Kohers and Kohers 2000). Using an event-study approach, I find that acquirers and targets both realize statistically significant day-0 abnormal returns (1.23% [p<0.1] and 8.1% [p<0.01], respectively). As positive stock returns signal positive growth prospects in a semi-strong efficient market, AR regressions found that firms' technological relatedness, deal financing, purchase price premiums, and the relative book to market ratio, explained most variance. Overall, high-tech transactions are value-additive for both targets and acquirers.
