VIX as Predictor Variable of Stock Market Returns

This document studies the power of CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) to predict stock market returns of Standard & Poor's 500 (S&P 500), a good proxy of the USA economy. VIX measures the market’s expectation of S&P 500 volatility, however many authors call it fear index because the value of the index spikes in moments of high selling in financial markets. Even though VIX is a common indicator in technical analysis and market sentiment (Baker & Wurgler, 2007), this study fits better to fundamental analysis of the USA economy as a whole.

The download includes the complete master thesis in docx and pdf. The documents are well structured and correctly formatted. Additionally, it includes the complete project in R programming language, it is used to gather the data from internet, process the data, create all regression models and plot the images present in the management project.

PCBA for Lens Polishing Machine Haruchika HP-043

The scope of this project is an obsolete industrial machine without manufacturer support. The system automation was implemented with a full custom board, using discrete electronic components in an analog and digital electric nature. The target was to fix the machines, replacing the damaged boards with a new control system. During the systematic analysis of the machine and solution cases, we decided to reject the utilization of standard PLC due to the reduce space for the location of the components, also we disregard the possibility to make a pure reverse engineering (just copying the PCB) because it was based on obsoletes components with difficult access to market, finally we decided to create a new PCB from scratch using the latest sate of the art technology, but implementing the same behavior than the original board.

Software Development for a Communication Gateway

This is a communication gateway that collects information from various devices interface and sends it to a data collector web server for processing and visualisation. This specific variant is build to gather information from devices with RS232, but is easy to expand USB and ATA/IDE ports. This module can be used in areas where it is needed to collect data from external peripherals (e.g. measurement equipment, sensor) and to provide it to Ethernet server for further processing. Each device has a unique identifier for identification.
