Coverletter Creator

Python application that can generate job application coverletters based on templates. PDF (using latex) or text can be compiled. Each project can also be saved for reference later or further editing. Visit github link for more details.

Game of Cows and Bulls

I wrote this python program as a solver for a game of cows and bulls which broke out between friends during a particularly boring train ride. The Wrapper GUI is written in PyQt and designed using QT designer. All processing is done in python.

Khaleel’s Master Thesis

This thesis details the design and implementation of a digitally controllable sine wave oscillator which can generate frequencies in the range of 0.7 to 2.7 GHz with an output power of -20 dBm across 50 Ω load.

Microprocessor Design in Verilog

The purpose of this lab is to implement a THUMB processor with multiple pipeline stages that executes the given C-programs assembled for the ARM THUMB instruction set in Verilog. This processor features a 5 stage pipeline,hazard detection and dataforwarding.The CPU runs at a maximum frequency of 2.857 GHz.
