1. Collaborative Research: Multidisciplinary J-DSP Module Design, Implementation and Dissemination


This multidisciplinary CCLI phase 3 proposal is on a collaborative project involving several universities including Arizona State University (ASU), Johns Hopkins University (JHU), University of Washington Bothell (UWB), and Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU). In addition to the formal collaborative research structure involving these four institutions, the project also involves sponsored partnerships with at least three other universities, namely Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT), University of New Mexico (UNM), and University of Cyprus (UCY). Other partnerships through the collaborating institutions have also been organized with the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Padova.

The CCLI Phase 3 proposal builds on several products and outcomes of two previous Phase 2 CCLI EMDs and revolves around our online software technology J-DSP. This Phase 3 proposed comprehensive project expands the scope of J-DSP beyond Electrical Engineering to other fields associate with multidisciplinary applications that are central to the nations’ security and economic welfare. Our first multidisciplinary activity with Johns Hopkins University and two other partners is to create a J-DSP/Earth Systems version which will be customized for earth system sciences and geology, and will also embrace issues of sustainability. The software and associated module will be used in classes at JHU. Our second multidisciplinary activity has to do with extensions of J-DSP to arts and media (with the ASU AME) providing artists with creative web-based DSP software tools and embedding and assessing J-DSP modules in AME courses. A companion activity will embed J-DSP modules in a music synthesis course at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT). Our third inter-technology activity provides J-DSP and J-DSP-C modules for power engineering courses and embraces issues of renewable energy (with ASU Power Systems). A series of equally important activities with our partners target interdisciplinary and inter-technology areas including: interpreting biological signals from ion-channel sensors with J-DSP (with the Arizona Institute of Nanoelectronics), using J-DSP to expose students to the importance of signal analysis in sensing and genomics (with the ASU SenSIP; http://sensip.asu.edu), embedding J-DSP in FPGA systems courses (with UNM), embedding J-DSP in computing and programming applications (UsWB), and embedding J-DSP in DSP courses (with PVAMU).
