Biography

Dan DePardo supports the Wireless Communications and Digital Signal Processing Lab and other Center electronic hardware needs. His areas of expertise include microstrip antenna design, surface acoustic wave (SAW) delay line and filter design, photolithography techniques, clean-room procedures, hybrid circuitry design, environmental testing techniques, Mil-spec soldering and assembly, radio frequency interference (RFI) abd electro-magnetic interference (EMI) suppression techniques, along with radio frequency and microwave components, circuitry, and systems in general. His research interests have included developing prototype transceivers for the DARPA Rapidly Deployable Radio Network (RDRN) project; implementing computing, audio, and video hardware in support of the NSF/DARPA Ambient Computational Environments (ACE) project; and construction of various ice measurement radars to support NASA investigations. He is currently focused on the NSF-sponsored development of frequency-agile orthogonal frequency domain multiplexing (OFDM) transceivers, spectrum mapping, and wide-band wireless systems.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
