Title:
Using hardware in remote instruction for electrical and computer engineering courses
Date:
November 23rd
4:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Portland
Abstract:

The theme for this meeting will be “Using hardware in remote instruction for electrical and computer engineering courses.” By hardware (HW), I mean platforms like Analog Discovery II from Digilent, FPGA development boards, Software-defined Radios, and whatever other hardware you required your students to purchase or that you loaned to them. This can also include HW emulation.  Goals for the meeting will be:

  • Inventory various HW platforms, instruments, and parts that faculty use across the ECE curriculum.
  • Discuss ideas on how to use HW in ECE courses while teaching remotely.
  • Exchange notes on how well things went in the remote setting and list some best practices.
  • Potentially develop some collaborative projects.

Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for everyone.

Everyone is welcome to participate and share. For those who would like to participate I would suggest that you prepare a few slides (2-3) and address the following:

  1.   List the HW you used, its cost, and whether it was purchased by students or loaned
  2.   List courses where it was used and in what types of assignments (labs, projects, HW, in-class, etc.)
  3.   How did it work out and what would you recommend to potential implementers

Please let me know by email if you plan to participate so that I can send you a zoom link.

The meeting will be held from 16:00 to 17:00 on Monday, November 23. I hope to see you then. In the meantime, stay safe.

Title:
A Discussion on MicroGrids An Online Presentation
Date:
November 20th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
San Francisco, CA
Abstract:

As medical facilities, universities, offices, shopping complexes, resorts, communities, and others make significant investments to become less dependent on the traditional power grid, they have begun to employ various distributed energy resources (DERs), such as solar photovoltaics (PV), battery energy storage systems, wind turbines, fuel cells, and generators to meet their sustainability goals.

Redundant power systems create a higher level of reliability, but only if the DERs are managed intelligently and aligned by importance of each load they’re serving. The presentation will review Microgrid technology with a focus on the following topics:

A 2020 Update on Microgrids with Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS)

  • Context on Distributed Energy Resources (DER’s) - generators, then PV, and now BESS
  • Evolution of interconnections from IEEE 1547-2003 to CA Rule 21, UL1741-SA, and IEEE 1547-2018
  • A key exception to typical Low Voltage Ride Through (LVRT) settings:  Load Shedding or Transfer
  • Challenges using a BESS as a grid-forming source during an outage

Speaker:  Lance Hanes, Schneider Electric

 

 

Lance Haines is Schneider Electric’s Chief Technology Officer – Microgrids.  He has been with Schneider Electric since 2003 working in a variety of roles ranging from solar PV to developing new microgrid offers such as the Energy Control Center.  Prior to joining Schneider Electric, Lance worked at a startup focused on electric vehicles and sustainable energy systems.

Title:
A Brief Introduction of Python to Freshman Engineering Students Using Multimedia Applications
Date:
November 20th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
, AZ
Abstract:

With the rise of automation and artificial intelligence (AI), acquiring basic programming skills is becoming more and more relevant to all engineering students regardless of majors. Yet, programming courses are not always required in engineering disciplines other than electrical and computer engineering. To equip engineering students with this important skill, a four-lecture Python module was developed to teach students programming basics in a freshman Introduction to Engineering course, which is required by all engineering majors. Learning programming basics early in the curriculum is useful for engineering students, who can then apply it to their course projects, student club activities, competitions and senior capstone design projects.

This talk will present the four-lecture Python lesson plan. Also in the talk, a survey instrument from Self-determination theory to measure student motivations, called Situational Motivation Scale (SIMS) survey, will be introduced. Student responses to the survey will be presented to show the effectiveness of the Python module. The four-lecture Python module designed for the Introduction to Engineering course can be used as a standalone module in any course that needs a brief introduction to Python. The SIMS survey can also be used in any course as an effective tool to help identify areas for curriculum improvement.

This work is funded in part by the 2019 Teaching Excellence and Student Success Grant from ASU Provost Office.

Title:
Heterogeneous Integration for Power Electronics
Date:
November 20th
8:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
santa clara
Abstract:

Heterogeneous integration (HI) is not possible without a source of power for the multiple devices and components involved. While it is possible to supply this power externally to one or more devices, it is typically advantageous to integrate the conversion and distribution of this power into the HI system. This makes power delivery one of the most critical elements in an HI system.
HI provides significant advantages for power electronics as it permits wide-bandgap power devices — which surpass silicon in power handling capability, efficiency, and operating temperature — to be integrated with silicon control, logic, and memory devices and with lower operating-temperature passive devices. Nevertheless, HI of power electronics comes with a raft of challenges for SiP designers, as the power electronics require space, generate heat, and can cause electrical noise in the circuits.
This roadmap for Power Electronics for Heterogeneous Integration addresses the timeline for the development of the power conversion and distribution techniques needed to supply clean, efficient power at a variety of voltages to the wide range of devices in an HI system without significantly increasing system size. The 2019 version of the roadmap focuses on the first of these categories — reducing power converter size. This requires the development of wide bandgap semiconductor devices which can convert higher levels of power more efficiently, combined with packaging technologies (i.e., interconnection and thermal management) and passive devices that can reduce the size and increase the power density of the converter circuits. Developing smaller converters is important because utilizing distributed conversion where each component is near to its power supply is critical to minimize interconnection losses and signal noise.

Abstract:

Heterogeneous integration (HI) is not possible without a source of power for the multiple devices and components involved.  While it is possible to supply this power externally to one or more devices, it is typically advantageous to integrate the conversion and distribution of this power into the HI system. This makes power delivery one of the most critical elements in an HI system and one clearly requiring its own section of the roadmap.

Title:
SSCS Webinar: Continuous-Time Pipelined ADC for Wide-Bandwidth Wireless Receivers
Date:
November 20th
8:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Location:
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

The design space of analog-to-digital converters (ADC) can be classified by two orthogonal axes – one representing the different ADC architectures such as SAR, pipeline, and ΔΣ; the other mapping the underlying circuits as discrete-time and continuous-time configurations. For ΔΣ ADCs, both discrete- and continuous-time design topologies have been explored extensively. With continuous-time implementations excelling in power efficiency and bandwidth, continuous-time ΔΣ ADCs have been widely used in a variety of applications including wireless communication systems. One then might ask – if continuous-time ΔΣ ADCs offer multiple key benefits over discrete-time counterparts, does the same rationale apply to other ADC architectures such as pipelined ADCs? This webinar attempts to answer this question. We first present how a continuous-time pipelined ADC can be derived from a discrete-time equivalent. We then cover the pros and cons of the continuous-time pipelined ADC against discrete-time pipelined and continuous-time ΔΣ ADCs. We also present the implementation examples in 28nm and 16nm CMOS technologies. We will conclude the talk with a discussion of future research directions.

Virtual IEEE OC Comp. Soc. & OC ACM Meeting "Big Data Analytics with Apache AsterixDB"
Date:
November 18th
7:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
, CA
Abstract:
Zoom Virtual Event Details

Apache AsterixDB is a Big Data Management System (BDMS) with a feature set chosen to target use cases such as web data warehousing and social media data analysis. Its notable features include:
- A NoSQL-style data model based on extending JSON with object database concepts;
- A declarative query language, SQL++, that supports a broad range of queries against multiple semi-structured datasets;
- A query optimizer for parallel queries and an efficient dataflow execution engine for partitioned-parallel query execution;
- Partitioned and LSM-based native storage and indexing for large datasets;
- Support for querying of external data (e.g., data on AWS S3) as well as natively stored data;
- Rich data type support, including numeric, textual, temporal, and simple spatial data;
- Basic NoSQL-like transactional capabilities.

This talk will provide a brief user-level overview of the system, which in current industrial terminology might be classified as a "parallel NoSQL document database system". It will then dive into how Apache AsterixDB's SQL++ language can be used to query and analyze large volumes of semistructured (JSON) data. "NoSQL" does NOT mean NoQueries!

A MICROGRID WEBINAR SERIES- Session 5: Microgrid as a Resilience Resource in the Distribution System
Date:
November 18th
5:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Pullman, WA
Abstract:

Microgrid as a Resilience Resource in the Distribution System

 

Abstract – Grid-connected or isolated microgrids help to manage increased penetration of distributed energy resources for enhanced reliability. During adverse events, keeping the power on to critical facilities such as hospitals and fire department is essential. A number of resources are available with the integration of microgrids and DER to improve the resiliency of the critical loads during adverse events and grid disturbances within and outside microgrid. There is a need for formal metrics to quantify the resiliency of the distribution electric grid, or different configurations of the same network. Additionally, advanced algorithms and tools are needed for decision support to coordinate the management strategies among the distribution grid operators and microgrids operators. This talk will cover the basics of microgrid, defining resiliency, and a tool to study the resiliency of the electric distribution grid with microgrid.

Abstract:

IEEE Spokane is pleased to present an ambitious project report by EWU students, representing steps toward the worldwide challenge of industrial sorting automation.  Not only does this project address a difficult industry issue, it also faced the difficult worldwide challenge of the COVID pandemic. The student IEEE chapter at EWU had just started to approach this technology project via a representative scale model when the pandemic hit and they were forced to figure out how to keep moving with the group scattered around the country. Undeterred, the 17-member student group raised their ambitions, modifying the project to a modular architecture ideal for the situation -- while also adapting to maintain good communication with virtual tools along with the rest of the world. The project features image processing, computing, and control sub-systems. For more on this project, see the news article below or, better yet,  join us 11/18 to hear their report, ask questions, and find out where these students are going to take this project next.

Toward 100Gbps Fully Integrated Wireless Communication Transceivers
Date:
November 17th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

The future's more connected societies are in sore need of high-speed point-to-point wireless links with a data rate comparable to wireline links in both indoor short-range and outdoor long-range scenarios. Enabling applications include: optical fiber replacement, high-capacity backhauls, close-proximity wireless data transfer, etc. High-speed communication relies on two major factors: bandwidth and modulation format. The vastly under-utilized mm-wave to sub-THz band is very attractive for this application. However, the abundance of bandwidth in mm-wave/sub-THz bands cannot be easily utilized with commercially available low-cost Silicon-based fabrication technologies. Meanwhile, increasing modulation order puts stringent requirement on the high-speed mixed-signal interface design, i.e. analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog-converters and digital signal processors. In short, conventional transceiver architectures encounter serious bottleneck that limits achievable data rate and posts significant concerns on system cost and efficiency. The state-of-the-art solutions will be presented and discussed first, followed by our proposed way of implementing highly integrated ultra-high-speed wireless transceivers.

Title: Structure of Optimal Quantizer for Binary-Input Continuous-Output Channels with Output Constraints

Abstract: We consider a channel whose input is a binary random source with a given probability mass function and the output is a continuous random variable as a result of a continuous noise, characterized by the channel conditional densities. A quantizer is used to map the continuous output back to a discrete quantized-output. To retain most amount of information about the input, an optimal quantizer is one that maximizes mutual information between the input and the quantized-output. On the other hand, our goal is not only to recover the input but also to ensure that the probability mass function of the quantized-output satisfies a certain constraint. In particular, we are interested in designing a quantizer that maximizes the mutual information between the input and the quantized-output while keeping an arbitrary cost function over the probability mass function of the quantized-output smaller than a certain threshold. Our result shows that the optimal quantizer separates the posterior distribution space into convex cells. Based on this optimal structure, we describe some fast algorithms for determining the optimal quantizers.

Seminar: The Challenges and Capabilities of Free-Floating Autonomous Robots for Exploration of Extreme Environments
Date:
November 12th
5:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Honolulu, HI
Abstract:

Corina Barbalata, PhD
Assistant Professor
Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Louisiana
State University


The Deep Space and the Deep Ocean are very similar in the sense that they are positioned at the end of continuum of extreme environments and pressures, that without the advancement of technology humans cannot access it. The advancements of robotics allowed us to access areas that have never been reached before and see details of wonders that were previously hidden to the human eye, all while reducing costs and increasing safety for space and ocean exploration. Nevertheless, robots used for space and ocean exploration still struggle with the environmental hazards. Moreover, if we are aiming to have autonomous robots in these environments we have to ensure that they are robust to achieve their mission and they can safely return on land. This talk will focus on autonomous robots for exploration of Deep Space and Oceans. We will give an overview of the challenges faced by a specic type of robotic systems used in air, in space and in underwater environments: the free-oating vehicle manipulator system. These types of robots not only allow for surveying the environment but also interacting with it. We will discuss different approaches to model and evaluate the behaviour of free-floating vehicle manipulator systems that can be used rst as a simulation tool but also to control the performance of such systems. Furthermore, we will show how to enable autonomous robust and precise behaviors and how to extend the autonomy of free-floating vehicle manipulator systems using intelligent control structures.

Professional & Forensic Engineering and Expert Witness Career Progression (IEEE-USA Free Webinar)
Date:
November 12th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Washington, DC
Abstract:

This webinar discusses Electrical Engineering career paths, specifically paths leading to independent consulting, forensic engineering, and being an expert witness.

A good career starting point is for an undergraduate senior electrical engineering student to obtain Engineer in Training (EIT) certification. Because of the “Industrial Exemption” some electrical engineers never need to be fully licensed, but unexpected career changes (layoffs, for instance) can make Professional Engineering (PE) licensure valuable, and necessary for one to go into business and declare oneself an Engineering Consultant.

Of the many paths an Electrical Engineering Consultant can choose, one fascinating choice is Forensic Engineering and Serving as an Expert Witness. If that path is chosen, the National Academy of Forensic Engineers (NAFE) provides advantages in specialized certification, continuing education, and networking.

Title:
Talk: MM-WAVE GAN POWER AMPLIFIERS: TECHNOLOGY TO POWER THE FUTURE
Date:
November 10th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Redmond, WA
Abstract:

The emergence of 5G cellular has created new interest in the millimeter-wave spectrum. This frequency band (30 to 300 GHz) remains a great untapped resource that must be utilized in order to realize the goals (5G and beyond) of the Internet and cell phone industries. There simply is not enough bandwidth at lower frequencies to satisfy future system requirements for speed and capacity. The millimeter-wave spectrum is also of great interest to military and industrial planers, where the enhanced resolution provided by greater bandwidths is necessary to meet future systems goals. Fortunately, a new device/materials technology has emerged which can meet these requirements. This is GaN on SiC substrates. MMICs fabricated with this high bandgap materials offer a factor of 10 improvement in the power density compared with older technologies such as GaAs and InP.
This talk will focus on GaN MMIC technology and how it can address industry (commercial and military) power needs at millimeter-wave frequencies. I will first present where the technology currently is in terms of power, efficiency and frequency, and then present where it is headed. I will also present the factors limiting performance and cost and offer possible solutions.

Title:
Global-Shutter Solid-State Flash Lidar for High Resolution 3D Imaging
Date:
November 10th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Autonomous systems increasingly rely on data fusion from an array of sensors. Lidar systems, which use light to generate three-dimensional images, are expected to deliver high-quality and high-resolution data across a broad range of operating conditions and at a low cost. Most lidars in the market utilize legacy technologies such as mechanical scanning, long-coherence-length lasers, and avalanche photodiodes, and consequently offer limited performance and robustness at a relatively high price point. Newer, solid-state systems, still scan the field-of-illumination or the field-of-view and thus trade off resolution, field-of-view and frame rate, may suffer from motion artifacts , and require careful and expensive optical alignments. This talk will describe a global-shutter lidar system, which, when combined with novel signal processing algorithms, delivers high-resolution, wide-field and long-range 3D data at a fraction of the cost of legacy systems. We will discuss design trade-offs, technological challenges and the wide array of applications which will be enabled by this exciting technology.

Title:
FAILURE MODE & EFFECTS ANALYSIS: THE NEW 7 STEP APPROACH!
Date:
November 10th
10:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
, CA
Abstract:

Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an analytical methodology used to ensure that potential problems have been considered and addressed throughout the product and process development process. Part of the evaluation and analysis is the assessment of risk. FMEA is the most commonly used risk analysis method in the automotive and aerospace industries, and helps manufacturers and suppliers to predict and prevent failures in both the product development and part production processes.

In the Automotive industry, OEMs (US and Europe) have harmonized their regional FMEA manuals into an international guide on Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). The revised handbook represents the culmination of a four-year project updating the FMEA process for automotive suppliers. The project was a joint effort between OEMs and Tier 1 supplier members of the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) and Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA), Germany’s association for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. The result is one common foundation for FMEAs across all global automotive sectors represented by AIAG and VDA.

In addition to making it easier for suppliers to meet their customers’ needs during the FMEA development process, the handbook features major changes such as a new process for FMEA development – the 7-Step Approach. Important changes include the following:

  • Totally revised Severity, Occurrence and Detection Tables.
  • The Action Priority (AP) methodology and Tables to replace RPN.
  • New Form Sheets (spreadsheet users) and Software Report Views (software users).
  • Change point highlights from both the AIAG 4th edition FMEA Manual and the VDA Volume 4 FMEA Manual.
Title:
Automotive Radar – a signal processing perspective on current technology and future systems
Date:
November 10th
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Glendale, CA
Abstract:

Radar systems are a key technology of modern vehicle safety & comfort systems. Without doubt it will only be the symbiosis of Radar, Lidar and camera-based sensor systems which can enable advanced autonomous driving functions soon. Several next generation car models are such announced to have more than 10 radar sensors per vehicle, allowing for the generation of a radar-based 360° surround view necessary for advanced driver assistance as well as semi-autonomous operation. Hence the demand from the automotive industry for high-precision, multi-functional radar systems is higher than ever before, and the increased requirements on functionality and sensor capabilities lead to research and development activities in the field of automotive radar systems in both industry and academic worlds.

Current automotive radar technology is almost exclusively based on the principle of frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar, which has been well known for several decades. However, together with an increase of hardware capabilities such as higher carrier frequencies, modulation bandwidths and ramp slopes, as well as a scaling up of simultaneously utilized transmit and receive channels with independent modulation features, new degrees of freedom have been added to traditional FMCW radar system design and signal processing. The anticipated presentation will accordingly introduce the topic with a review on the fundamentals of radar and FMCW radar. After introducing the system architecture of traditional and modern automotive FMCW radar sensors, with e.g. insights into the concepts of distributed or centralized processing and sensor data fusion, the presentation will dive into the details of fast-chirp FMCW processing – the modulation mode which is used by the vast majority of current automotive FMCW radar systems. Starting with the fundamentals of target range and velocity estimation based on the radar data matrix, the spatial dimension available using modern single-input multiple-output (SIMO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar systems will be introduced and radar processing based on the radar data cube or higher-dimension radar-data tensors is discussed. Of interest is the topic of angular resolution – one of the key drawbacks which e.g. render Lidar systems superior to radar in some situations. Consequently, traditional and modern methods for direction of arrival estimation in FMCW radar systems are presented, starting from traditional monopulse-like algorithms to modern sparse reconstruction techniques. Besides other topics such as blindness, rain & snow and near-field detection the presentation will then introduce the great challenge of FMCW radar system interference. While FMCW radar interference is a challenge which can be handled using adaptive signal processing in today’s systems, it will become a severe problem with the increasing number of radar-sensors equipped vehicles in dense traffic situations in the near future and a solution to the expected increase in interference is still an open question.

It is this problem of interference, together with some added functionality, which motivated the proposal of alternative radar waveforms such as pseudo-random or orthogonal-frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) radar for automotive radar systems. Although not yet of great interest from an industrial perspective, the fundamentals and capabilities of both technologies will be introduced in the remainder of the anticipated presentation.

Title:
Fast and Simple Rigid-Flex PCB Bending Electromagnetic Analysis
Date:
November 5th
6:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
San Jose
Abstract:

Rigid-Flex PCBs have been used in many modern electronic devices (such as mobile phones, laptops, wearables, among others), due to their ability to fit in small form factor, light weight and cost-effective. Electromagnetic (EM) analysis of Rigid-Flex PCBs has always been a challenging task for many commercially available 3D numerical solver technologies (FEM & FDTD), due to the complexity in the 3D designs. In this presentation, we first address the key challenges faced by the EM designers and then propose a novel automated simulation workflow for a fast-to-market product development process. The proposed workflow utilizing Cadence Allegro and Clarity3D is the first of its kind in the PCB-electromagnetic community which is less error prone and very efficient process in setting up the design for EM simulation, and runs faster than the other time-consuming 3D-EM tools in the industry.

Title:
Enabling technologies for 6G Networks
Date:
November 5th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Abstract:

The academic community begin to define possible verticals and key-performance indicators for the sixth generation (6G) networks. However, the industrial community has many ongoing development projects that could lay down the ground for 6G development. For example, network virtualization transforms the operators infrastructure into fully automated and scalable chain of hybrid network functions that reside in public and private cloud. This new form of network modeling allows optimizing the computational resources through automated networks that monitors spectrum availability and traffic processed throughout various network segments. This combination of proactive service adaptation and smart resource assignment will influence the architectural design for upcoming 6G networks and the development of integrated components. The lecture will provide visions for a proactive end-to-end 6G network considering current and any future technology enablers.

Application of Quantum Memory
Date:
November 5th
4:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Medina, WA
Abstract:

This webinar will focus on developing a specific Application for Quantum Memory to hold data in a superimposing fashion so that an infinite amount of data can be stored without ever running out of memory space. The application is an evolving concept, developed for storing digital images into the memory bank consisting of many quantum bits. Instead of using the traditional concept of data storage in a digital computer where a block of memory is used to store only one set of data and afterward this block is reserved so that no further storing is possible, this application proposes to use the same block of quantum memory to store new data repeatedly and indefinitely. Thus, algorithms for storing and retrieving data are developed, and numerical simulations are presented to demonstrates the workability of the concept.

There is a tutorial on Quantum Computing by Dr. Trung T. Pham, from the Department of Computer Science at USAFA.  If you  are interested, please watch it at

Online Meeting
Abstract:

 

Guest Speaker:Krishnendu Chakrabarty, the John Cocke Distinguished Professor and Department Chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Professor of Computer Science, IEEE/ACM Fellow, Duke University

Presenting:Quo Vadis Digital Microfluidic Biochips? From Laboratory Research to Commercialization and Beyond

Venue:Online

When:Oct. 29th7-8 pm

Abstract:

Digital microfluidics was transitioned to the marketplace for sample preparation by Illumina a few years ago. Since then, this technology has also been deployed by Genmark for infectious disease testing and Baebies for the detection of lysosomal enzymes in newborns. This lecture will describe the journey from early laboratory research, PhD theses and publication of research articles, to technology transfer and licensing to companies.  Today’s microfluidic biochips are fully automated under program control and they can be dynamically reconfigured using sensor data. However, despite these success stories, there still remains a gap between microfluidics research and its adoption in microbiology. The presenter will describe how this gap can potentially be closed with new directions in digital microfluidics, including recent advances in using micro-electrode-dot arrays and acoustofluidics.

Title:
Ribbon Alumina Laminate For PCBs And Substrates
Date:
October 29th
11:30 AM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Summary: Because ceramic materials are inherently brittle, vias have traditionally been made in the green state prior to sintering. Since the sintering is done by the ceramics vendor (at very high temperature), the onus is upon them to fabricate the vias beforehand, thus making the material custom and costly. This stands in stark contrast to PCB materials which are generic when delivered, being customized instead by the purchaser. Corning’s new ribbon alumina laminate is the first ceramic product that allows for PCB processing — even mechanical drilling. The ribbon alumina essentially supplants the traditional glass weave and, being homogeneous, eliminates differential signal skew. The laminate supports very high speed signaling, such as 5G, with very low loss tangent and dielectric constant. Applicable both as PCB and package substrate: use in PCBs dramatically reduces overall CTE mismatch, while use as a package substrate better distributes stress. This presentation will consider the process flow of traditional ceramics in contrast with Corning’s new ribbon alumina laminate, and provides details on important laminate attributes.

AI and IoT in Rail Roads
Date:
October 27th
7:00 PM (0 minute)
Location:
Seattle, WA
Abstract:

People's brains have been making and keeping sophisticated systems up and running for decades. Today duplicate copies of electrical systems like the Rail Locomotives have been copied to help work processes of sophisticated systems improve design and construction of locomotives and rail cars. Our brains are our virtual reality now termed extended reality or XR have emerged as tools to use to help duplicate actual scenarios. These duplicate systems are tested and stressed real time simultaneously just like the original and over time can be predicted and observed to fail at certain times either as a whole or as components. IoT allows us to show the stressors that actually happen in the field and now is shown as a computer double. Stressors include mechanical, pnematic, electrical and structural for these locomotives and rail cars. Join us tonight for a thoughtful study of the locomotive clone.

Date:
October 26th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

WebEx login details will be sent to registered attendees on October 25, 2020. 

Brief description: The core research philosophy in my research is that energy and power are deemed as "hard currency" in the context of electronic systems. Therefore every joule and watt must be budgeted carefully to maximize the return over energy & power invested, particularly in mobile application, where battery charge is limited.This webinar will discuss the power management techniques of a small-scale, unmanned autonomous vehicle for environmental sustainability research, codenamed Lotus. This machine is designed by my students at SDSU and has integrated commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensors, CMOS integrated circuits, energy harvesters from different energy domains, and ferroelectric capacitors. Conventional power management techniques such as adaptive power delivery, spread spectrum power control, dynamic voltage frequency scaling, power gating and new design techniques based on ferroelectric capacitors that were adopted on Lotus will be discussed in this webinar.
