  • Van der Horst, Johannes Gerhardus (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
    The availability of high density FPGAs has made the use of soft-core processors an attractive proposition for the low volume space market. Soft-core processors combine the power of programmable logic with the ease of use ...
  • Gross, Peter Alan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) of the Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) superconducting logic family is researched. Insight into the design methodologies used for large-scale digital systems and ...
  • Alberts, Stefan Francois (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The fairly recent introduction of low-cost depth sensors such as Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect has encouraged a large amount of research on the use of depth sensors for many common Computer Vision problems. ...
  • Malan, Frederich T (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A well-known problem with FM-CW radar systems is the leakage of transmitter power into the receiver which leads to the making of close-in targets, and can severely limit the system dynamic range performance. ...
  • Boshielo, Babudi Turcia (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: One of the requirements for satellite telemetry systems is the provision of reliable telemetry data to allow accurate monitoring of the satellite status. This thesis focuses on the design of telemetry ...
  • Graser, Ferdl Wolfgang (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
    A process was developed to design and manufacture a dc SQUID magnetometer. Superconductor theory is given as a foundation to explain the Josephson junction. This knowledge is applied to explain the ideal and practical ...
  • Botha, Jakobus Stephanus (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Keywords: digital signal processing, embedded systems, telecommunications, satellite technology. The rapid growth of the telecommunications industry is a worldwide phenomenon with people and computers ...
  • Van Wyk, John Foster (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    This thesis describes the design and implementation of a software platform for software defined radio (SDR). This platform was to form part of an experimental satellite payload. Several other experiments were also housed ...
  • Thompson, Nicholas Christopher (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Technical advances in electromagnetics, signal processing and processing power have led to a significant increase in sensitivity and accuracy in radio telescopes. With this increase in sensitivity, radio ...
  • Terblanche, Eugene (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
    Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are the integration of nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The idea of this thesis is to give a basic preparation to approach NEMS, a subcategory of nanotechnology. ...
  • Claase, Etienne H. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In recent years the aviation industry has shown an interest in the airborne refuelling of large transport aircraft to enable increased payload mass at take-off and to extend aircraft range. Due to the ...
