ECE Student, Evan Faulkner, Presents at NEWSDR’19 and Wins Best Poster

Earlier this summer, UMass Boston hosted the 2019 New England Workshop on Software Defined Radio (NEWSDR’19). The Boston SDR User Group (SDR-Boston) organizes an annual series of workshops and this was the ninth one held. These workshops allow individuals working on SDR-related projects in the New England area to collaborate and introduce SDR concepts to others interested in furthering their knowledge of SDR capabilities and available resources.

Evan Faulkner, an Electrical and Computer Engineering Senior at the University of Connecticut attended the event. During Spring 2019, he pursued an independent study with Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Shengli Zhou, Ph.D. Faulkner presented his work, “Comparison of Coherent and Noncoherent Receivers for IEEE 802.15.4 Modulation Based on SDR Platforms,” in a poster at the event. After briefly presenting his work to the audience, he displayed his poster to host visitors. Visitors voted for the best poster and Faulkner won the best poster award out of the twelve posters in competition.
