Who I am: I have finished the forth year of my Bachelors degree in Electronics and nanoelectronics at the Kuban state university. Now I am going to continue for masters degree research related to high accuracy RF and microwave measurements. In the time free of studies I like to do some digital embedded electronics for fun and also listening to the good music.
Research: The plan for this summer is to gain knowledge of HDL development and verification and how it applies to particle accelerators, RF noise analysis, RF cavity operation, develop an understanding of microphonics control in superconducting cavities. Skills that are going to be obtained: Development for the Altera SoC architecture, RF systems analysis. Techniques: Automated HDL verification techniques (e.g. universal verification methodology (UVM)). High-speed fiber links.
