IEEE Workshop: Changes in NEC 2020 for Engineers
December 2nd
7:00 AM (2 days)
World Trade Center
Admission fee may apply

This two-day workshop will provide educational instruction on the 2020 NEC code changes for electrical engineers and electricians.  Fundamentals revisions around available fault current, short-circuit current ratings, selective coordination, and incident energy grounding will be covered. Practical and theoretical instruction for electrical engineers will be presented to help increase the likelihood of proper system design for performance and compliance with the NEC grounding and bonding requirements.  The Workshop is formatted for Electrical Engineers and Designers of commercial and industrial electrical systems which are governed by the NEC, and is highly recommended as a review supplement for those preparing to take the Electrical P. E. or current P.E.’s that need to fulfill ongoing requirements for continuous education. IEEE Professional Development Hour (PDH) Certificates for 16 hours will be available to all participants after completion of this course.

Attendees are advised to bring a laptop, an engineering calculator, and a copy of the 2020 NEC, either electronic or paper.

A softbound copy of NEC 2020 (NFPA 70) can be ordered at time of registration for an additional discounted rate of .00. Order must be placed by November 22 to be available in time for the workshop.

Oregon Nanotechnology Chapter Inaugural Workshop
December 6th
1:00 PM (4.5 hours)
Engineering Building

Inaugural meeting of the Oregon Section Chapter of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council

Date: Friday, December 6

Time: 1:00-5:30 pm

Location: Portland State University, EB-103, Engineering Building, 1930 SW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97201

This is the kick-off meeting of the new IEEE Nanotechnology Council Chapter. After introductions, elections for chapter officers will be held.

This will followed by a workshop featuring three distinguished lecturers.

John Yeow, University of Waterloo: "Highly Miniaturized Biomedical Imaging Devices"

John T. W. Yeow is currently a Professor in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada. His current research interests are in the field of developing miniaturized biomedical instruments.

Jean-Pierre Leburton, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign: "2D Nano-Electronic Materials for Bio-sensing"

Professor Leburton is the G. Stillman Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is involved with research in nanostructures modeling and in quantum device simulation. His present research interest encompasses non-linear transport in quantum wires and carbon nanotubes, and molecular and bio-nanoelectronics. He is author and co-author of more than 300 technical papers in international journals and books, and served in numerous conferences committees.

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay, Virginia Commonwealth University: "Straintronics: Boolean and Non-Boolean Computing with Tiny Nanomagnets Switched with Electrically Generated Mechanical Strain"

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay is Commonwealth Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University where he directs the Quantum Device Laboratory. Research in the laboratory has been frequently featured in national and international media (newspapers, internet blogs, magazines, journals such as Nature and Nanotechnology, and internet news portals).



COMSOC: Make Streaming Great Again
December 9th
6:00 PM (2.2 hours)
PSU-Engineering Building
Abstract: We all strive to deliver the best viewer experience in streaming, but it is not as easy as it sounds. Large deployments of adaptive streaming over HTTP have shown that streaming still faces problems in many ways for both the content/service providers and consumers. In this talk, Dr. Begen will present some of the challenges regarding the content generation, delivery and consumption based on the distillation of my own work as well as collaboration with some big service providers. He will also touch on the current problems in streaming media research. 
Bringing the pr0t0n arm to market and Open Manipulator build report
December 9th
6:30 PM (2 hours)

Robert Toppel and his team will talk about bringing the pr0t0n arm to market. e1ectr0n is a spinoff of Axiom Electronics who has been hosting our meetings. pr0t0n is targeted at high-mix, low-volume manufacturing. It is focused at skilled workers who can train the arm for repetitive tasks. A goal is to mitigate the shortage of the high skilled worker required for low-volume manufacturing.

pr0t0n supports two training methods: game controller precision movements and keyboard code tasks. It is driven by a dual-core ARM processor with an FPGA embedded PID controller. It supports real time inverse kinematics and 5-axis movement. An effector roll servo adds another axis. Its rated payload is 4.4 pounds with a reach of 21.5 inches.

See for details.

We will also provide a build report by members assembling the Robotis Open Manipulator. It employs Dynamixel X series servos. ROS supports its OpenCR controller. It has a 500 gram payload with a 14.9 inch reach.

See for details.
