These projects were produced in the last month of ECE 4760 each spring. The students were given the responsibility of choosing their project, then designing and building it. Several have been published. The microcontroller used is the Atmel ATmega series. This year we use the Mega1284 microprocessor and WINAVR/GCC compiler. Before 2009, we used the Codevision C compiler. Many projects are on youtube . The project numbers are for identification and do not represent ranking. Send comments to Bruce Land, Electrical and Computer Engineering.

* Local counter
** Google Analytics

The plot shows the number of visits from different countries (from Jan 2008 to Sept 2009) as a function of the rank (of number of visits) from that country. The slope of the first section of the line is about -1.1, so the number of visits goes as 1/rank up to rank 75 or so. A plot of population versus country rank shows a similar slope of about -1 out to about rank 100, then drops rapidly. A reasonable guess is that page views per capita is constant between countries.
