Homework 2, due Thurs Sep 13

Hand in your solution on RPILMS. Each team should submit their solution under only 1 student's name. The other student's submission should just name the lead student. (This makes it easier for us to avoid grading it twice.) For programming exercises, hand in code and screen dumps. We won't run your code, but will use the screendumps to judge how it worked.

  1. (4 pts) Which RPI grad was the technical person in the founding group of NVidia?
    Curtis Priem.
  2. (4 pts) How does the touch screen of a smartphone work? Write not more than 100 words. This requires research. Do what you can; some of this is proprietary.
    3. Testing with a piece of plastic shows that my Samsung Galazy SIII is capacitive.
  3. (12 pts) Do the following exercises from Guha.
    1. 3.3 on page 71.
    2. 3.6 on page 75.
    3. 3.7 on page 76.
    4. The 4th exercise here was postponed until next week.

(Total: 20 points.)
