Color vision in vanilla CMOS

My first project was the design of an Analog ASIC doing color vision without the need for any special fabrication process. It uses two different types of photodiodes that also have different spectral response to gather not only brightness but also spectral information. As only two types of color sensitife structures are used, it can only tell apart short and long wavelengths, but not full RGB imaging.

A stand-alone AER communication system

The main goal of my second project is to build a portable, stand-alone AER system, that can be easily interfaced to lots of AER components and to workstations or laptops, independent of their operating system.

This AER system should combine both the current PCI-AER board functionality, and the USB2-AER boards functionalities.
