IEEE DC/NoVA/Baltimore Circuits and Systems Society Chapter Meeting

Share

This will be the first meeting of the Washington DC / NoVA / Baltimore Chapter of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.  Join us for a productive way to start the New Year!

We will start with food and networking, followed by a presentation from the CASS Student Design Team from the University of Maryland at 7pm, followed by a business meeting.  We need to discuss chapter elections, ISCAS 2017, outreach plans, and plans for future meetings and events.

CASS Student Design Team Presentation

 


This team project aims to produce an inexpensive electrowetting-based display (EWD). EWDs are built with each pixel containing a droplet on a hydrophobic surface. The fluid is naturally repelled by the hydrophobic surface, but when a voltage is applied to the surface, the droplet reforms. The result is two-color pixel states that can be used to build a display. Team VOLTAGE has begun design, fabrication, and experimentation and has already achieved droplet movement, although a working pixel has not yet been built. We will refine our methodology in order to build a working pixel. Initially we will use a pixel structure and voltage control methods based on existing electrowetting literature in order to create a rudimentary display. The display will be refined as time permits; refinements include designs that both lower the power requirements to actuate the individual pixels and utilize cheaper materials and/or robust construction methods to lower the cost of construction. Ultimately we hope to submit an electrowetting display as part of an expansion board to a microcontroller, creating a single compact screen and driver.
