Senior Design Project: Presence Sensor for Garden Mowers Fall 2013
• Teamed with four students and worked together with engineers in TORO
Company to design an electronic device controlled by microchips to replace the
mechanical level used on the garden mowers.
• Was in charge of the PCB design, the PSPICE layout, and the alternative
solutions during the project.
• Used capacitive presence sensing technology by connecting the sensing chips on
the handler, and adjusting the sensitivity using a microcontroller chip.
• The final product was able to successfully detect human presence even if the
user is wearing thick working gloves.

Portable EKG Medical Device (heart beat oscilloscope) Fall 2012
• Leaded a team of five in the designing of an amplifier with noise filter which
has the gain approximately to 1000 times.
• The filter was mainly composed by two amplifying chips and a differential chip
to eliminate the natural vibrating noise of human bodies.
• Was also in charge of the designing part, did all the PSPICE layout work, ran
multiple tests, did and finished the final assembly of the device.
• The final built device successfully showed a detailed waveform of human heart
beat in the final presentation.

32-bit Adder Integrated Circuit Design Fall 2014
• Individually designed a 32-bit adder using Virtuoso software.
• Carefully designed both layout and schematic to fit the requirement of the adder, which
is frequency and the size of the layout.
• The final layout successfully performed as a functional 32-bit adder.
