Projects: Speech Coding in GSM
  • In '03 I had the chance to take Prof. Fernando Pereira's class on Telecomunication Systems and had to produce a research paper for the end of the semester. I did mine on "Speech coding in GSM" (in Portuguese).

  • I've completed an 80188 emulator. This version should be better than the first one and it has been tested in class in 2002. Here's a brief page on it.
