Brendon Jensen, a senior in the Computer Engineering program, recently completed a Capstone project alongside his team that enabled tech company L3Harris Technologies to perform more targeted network testing in a shorter amount of time: a cheaper, smaller, and more portable network traffic generator and analyzer than they had been using before. Here’s what he learned from the two-semester process.

A BYU professor and his team have built the world’s most power-efficient high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) microchip. An ADC is a tiny piece of technology present in almost every electronic piece of equipment that converts analog signals (like a radio wave) to a digital signal.

Electrical Engineering senior Keaton Shurilla pictures a future where he can roll up to the club and experience a 360-degree audio system - not through strategically-spaced speakers, but through speakers with the technological prowess to project sound everywhere in the room. In that imagined future, he wants someone across the world to tune in with a virtual reality system so sophisticated it feels like they’re in the club with him. He is combining his passions for technology and the arts to make that future more feasible.
