A short final report is due by midnight on Friday 5/13. The report should be around 8 pages total (no more than 12), perhaps around 5 pages of text and 3 pages of figures (plus or minus a few pages on each). Better reports mix the text and figures together.
The report should be a standalone document. Meaning, someone who has not seen any of your presentations should be able to read and understand it.
If you used any resources to understand your project, please cite them. A good place for these citations is in the background section at the beginning of the paper but they may be placed in other sections as well. Also, if you based any part of your implementation off of an existing design, please cite the document you used. It is understood that your design may have been influenced by previous work. Don't avoid citing out of fear that your design is "not original enough".
Your paper should follow the IEEE template for Conference Proceedings with US Letter paper size. Latex and Word templates are available for free at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. You do not need to follow the IEEE specific guidelines outlined in the template document (ex. abbreviation standards, preferred units ...). We are requesting you use the template for its double column format, set fonts, and set margins.
Here is a suggested outline and page breakdown for your report. The flow will roughly follow the outline of your final presentation, but should include more details. You do not need to strictly follow this outline, it is here just to give you an idea of what we will be looking for. Also, feel free to add additional information not explicitly mentioned in the outline below, if you think it will help explain your work.
Part of your final grade will be based on a report grade. For the report grade, we will consider clarity, organization, and grammar. Make sure to proofread and correct mistakes before turning it in.
Please turn-in your report as a PDF file - no other formats please. (No MS-word documents!).
