Title:
EV Charger Stations and the Utility Role - Developments, Projects, and Challenges
Date:
April 24th
11:45 AM (1.2 hours)
Location:
Courtyard Room
San Francisco, CA
Abstract:

CPUC has mandated installing 7,500 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) throughout the PG&E territory by the end of 2020. This includes “behind-the-meter” work to install Level 2 charging stations and the direct current (DC) fast chargers. Exponent helped PG&E to develop standards for behind the meter installations for safety and compliance with standards of care. The developed standards are field-tested. In connection with the general efforts, other topics concerning behind-the-meter installations have been researched such as sub-metering through existing junctions; revenue-grade metering and possibility of eliminating the need for traditional meters; and load sharing and load management. This presentation outlines some of the challenges and lessons learned during this effort. It also includes some of the research performed in the relevant areas.

Title:
Artificial Intelligence Applications in Consumer Electronic Devices

Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Artificial Intelligence Applications in Consumer Electronic Devices.

Topic 1: Machine Learning for Mobile Developers: Tensorflow Lite Framework (Avid Farhoodfar)

As Machine learning reaches the mainstream, new tools available to developers makes it possible to implement machine-learning features—voice, face, and image recognition; personalized recommendations; and more—in a mobile context.  

With many model standards, such as Caffe, Keras, Scikit-learn and more, I'd like to focus our attention to TensorFlow Lite. TensorFlow Lite is a lightweight solution for mobile and embedded devices, derived from TensorFlow. It enables on-device machine learning inference with low latency and a small binary size. TensorFlow Lite also supports hardware acceleration with the Android Neural Networks API.

 

TensorFlow Lite applies many techniques for achieving low latency; optimizing the kernels for mobile apps, pre-fused activations, and quantized kernels that allow smaller and faster (fixed-point math) models.

Topic 2: Personal IoT Devices: Too much or much needed? (Zeki Gunay)

Abstract: Consumer demand is increasing for IoT products and some are entering our lives without us noticing. Where will consumer demand saturate for data and information?

In this presentation, Zeki will be presenting four products which CRATUS has developed which touch consumers and derive similarities and contrasts on use cases, value and we will collectively try to see the future of consumer IoT.

Abstract:

Protection against electric shock is a prerequisite for the success of the electric vehicle industry. Wide
ranging standards efforts are underway in various committees around the world, such as  UL, DKE and DIN. DC capable sensor technology offers a significant improvement in electrical safety and helps to ensure 
charging stations function as intended. The Europeans have a 6mA DC trip requirement on their chargers, but the US employs AC sensing only.  We will look inside an EV charging station,  review the protection technology, and discus how to assure a safe EV charger installation.

Title:
In-Package Optical I/O: Solving the Electrical I/O Bottleneck
Date:
April 23rd
5:30 PM (3 hours)
Location:
SC-12
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Driven by relentless increases in high-performance ASICs (switches, GPUs, CPUs, DRAM, etc.), the electrical I/O roadmap is nearing its end, and the ASIC industry is looking for a ubiquitous replacement to electrical I/O escaping chip packages. To meet such demands, a photonics technology with massive bandwidth density, high energy efficiency, and low cost must be used. These requirements necessitate unprecedented levels of integration between electronics and photonics and require rethinking traditional communication architectures. In this talk, I will present a new class of commercial optical devices integrated directly into a high-volume 300mm 45nm SOI CMOS process and how these devices enable new SoC's to solve the bandwidth bottleneck in the ASIC industry.

Title:
IEEE@SFSU Intel Workshop - Introduction to Digital High Level Design Workshop
Date:
April 23rd
2:00 PM (3.5 hours)
Location:
San Francisco, CA
Abstract:

The VHDL and Verilog hardware description languages have been the standard-bearers for describing digital circuitry for several decades. Recently, a new class of “C” like languages have come to the forefront of describing parallel computationally intensive workloads to speed up development of FPGAs. These languages describe comparable workloads in a fraction of the lines of code, and require less knowledge of digital electronics hardware. This workshop will describe the HLS (High Level Synthesis) language and give software and hardware engineers an appreciation for the efficiency of coding computationally intense algorithms used for AI, Machine Learning and Vision Processing. Pre-requisites: A course in “C” or “C++” and a course in Digital Logic design with some knowledge of VHDL and/or Verilog are required for this workshop.

Abstract:
Abstract

A more complete title for this talk would be "Recover and RELAX: Concern-Oriented Software Architecture Recovery for Systems Development and Maintenance", but while correct, it is too long.

The stakeholders of a system are interested in how its architecture reflects their concerns at each point of its life-cycle. Having such knowledge available at all times would enable them to continually adjust their systems’ structure and reduce the buildup of technical debt. In the usual case, this (actual) architecture is unavailable: architecture recovery provides a way to recover an architectural view of the system. Many different methods and tools exist to provide such a view. 

This talk will touch on the architectural recovery methods proposed by researchers but focus on concern-oriented approaches. The design choices forming the bases of most existing recovery methods mean that none of them have a complete set of desirable qualities for the purposes of development/enhancement or maintenance.  Tailoring a recovery to a system is either not possible or only through iterative experiments with numeric parameters. Furthermore, limitations in their scalability make it prohibitive to apply the existing techniques to large systems. Finally, since several current recovery methods employ non-deterministic sampling, their inconsistent results do not lend themselves well to tracking a systems course over several versions. 

After looking at a few case studies of common methods, we introduce RELAX (RELiable Architecture EXtraction), our new concern-based recovery method that uses text classification, addresses these issues efficiently by (1) assembling the overall recovery result from smaller, independent parts, (2) basing it on an algorithm with linear time complexity and (3) being tailorable to the recovery of a single system or a sequence thereof through the selection of meaningfully named, semantic topics. An intuitive, informative architectural visualization rounds out RELAX's contributions. RELAX is illustrated on a number of existing open-source systems and compared to other recovery methods.  A tool demo will be part of the presentation.

Title:
Smart Optical Materials by Nanoscale Assembly
Date:
April 18th
6:32 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:

Pomona, CA
Abstract:

Smart materials hold great promises for many intrigue applications as they exhibit chemical and physical responses to the applied external stimuli. This presentation will focus on nanostructured materials with responsive optical properties that can find applications in printing, sensing, signage, security documents, and displays. We will discuss our recent progress on the development of chemical and assembly approaches for the fabrication of various nanostructured materials whose optical properties can be dynamically tuned by controlling the spatial arrangement of the nanoscale building blocks. We show that many novel optical materials could be developed by manipulating the diffraction, refraction, birefringence, and electronic resonances through controlling the interaction between light and the nanostructures.

Please plan to attend this meeting of the Industry Applications Society. The speaker will be James P. Waltz, PE, CEM, FACFE, FCABE.

Our phones are smart, our cars are smart, our dishwashers and refrigerators, televisions and even circuit breakers are smart - but what about our buildings? This presentation explores what it means to be a "smart" building, and how technology has been and is being incorporated into the built environment. This will address which building infrastructure systems could be made "smart" and which might benefit from advanced technology, where it all started, how it has progressed over time and where it stands today.

Also, the subject of man-machine-interface will be discussed (aka, the human infrastructure), as well as a vision of what the future might hold.

DL SEMINAR TALK ON APR 17TH - IEEE HAWAII COMMUNICATIONS CHAPTER AND UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII IEEE STUDENT BRANCH
Date:
April 17th
9:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
Holmes Hall
Honolulu, HI
Abstract:

DL Seminar Talk on: "Technology, Regulation and Business: The impact on the career of an engineer over his/her lifetime."

Abstract

Note that meeting will be in Holmes Hall room 244, UH Manoa Campus

 

 

Engineers often refer to early influences of their life that helped them to decide to become an engineer. These influences are most often other engineers accomplishing great things during their career. For George, the United State’s early space program was a powerful influence especially since many of the astronauts were engineers. Engineers endure very rigorous courses and sleepless nights during their engineering education to accomplish their career aspirations and often find that their engineering courses are only part of the preparation that they need to succeed as an engineer. They will often find that non-engineering skills are also necessary such as business, legal/regulatory, project management, workplace diversity, and working with individuals from other countries.

Title:
Energetic Value- Solar PV, Energy Storage, and Net Energy Metering
Date:
April 17th
6:00 PM (2.8 hours)
Location:
US-MTV-SB65
Mountain View, CA
Abstract:

Government incentives and the policies of net energy metering have led to an explosion of solar PV systems throughout the United States over the last couple decades. At its advent, net energy metering marked the pivot point in the adoption of solar PV systems. The large-scale adoption of solar energy has led to the well-known duck curve; excess energy and low energy prices at midday with cost spikes and large ramps in necessary energy production moving into the evening.

Utilities have long complained that solar PV would cause harm to low income customers that could not afford installing PV systems and would be shouldered with the burden of increased rates to pay for utilities’ fixed costs. These factors have caused states such as Hawaii and Arizona to either rescind net metering or impose fixed charges on owners of solar PV systems. These changes to payback incentives for solar are leading to an enhanced marketspace for battery storage systems, especially as an energy arbitrage measure.

The recent uptick of fires, storms, and other disasters has begun to shine a light on the economic importance of resilience for building owners. People who live in recent disaster areas, whether those affected by the fires in northern California, or the hurricanes that have ravaged Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, have had to endure days or months without power in the wake of their respective disasters. Placing a dollar value on a client’s energy resilience is a difficult task but can lead to a better understanding of the true value of solar PV and Energy Storage.

Title:
Deep Convolutional Spiking Neural Networks for Image Classification
Date:
April 17th
10:30 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Micron Engineering Building
Boise, ID
Abstract:

Spiking neural networks are biologically plausible counterparts of the artificial neural networks, artificial neural
networks are usually trained with stochastic gradient descent and spiking neural networks are trained with spike
timing dependant plasticity. Training deep convolutional neural networks is a memory and power intensive job.
Spiking networks could potentially help in reducing the power usage. There is a large pool of tools for one to
chose to train artificial neural networks of any size, on the other hand all the available tools to simulate spiking
neural networks are geared towards computational neuroscience applications and they are not suitable for real life
applications. In this work we focus on implementing a spiking CNN using Tensorflow to examine behaviour of the
network and empirically study the effect of various parameters on learning capabilities and also study catastrophic
forgetting in the spiking CNN and weight initialization problem in R-STDP using MNIST and N-MNIST data
sets.

Title:
Interference between RF Device Modeling and Best Practices for using CAD Information in 3D Simulation of Electromagnetic Effects
Date:
April 16th
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
sunnyvale, CA
Abstract:

Interference between RF devices is one of the biggest challenges in designing and maintaining commercial and defense systems. These systems include ships, airplanes, drones, cell phones, satellites, automobiles and generally, anything that has RF systems installed in or on it. The problem is complex for a number of reasons including the broadband nature of the interference, the lack of detailed performance data, introduction of intermodulation products when multiple systems interact with one another and a host of other reasons. Identifying and solving cosite interference issues early in a design is critical as discovering an interference problem right before bringing a product to market or after it has been put into service can cost millions of dollars to fix the problem and lost revenue. One only has to perform a web search for “cosite interference” to see a sample of the issues that have plagued military and commercial programs for decades. In this talk, we will discuss the analysis capabilities and approach that EMA employs to predict and mitigate RF cosite interference problems for our customers. Today, EM engineers must use 3D geometry in a practical way in their work without letting the complexity of handling the full CAD overwhelm their design cycles. EM effects teams must do more in an increasingly shorter period, while being required to work on models traceable to the master CAD. As the ability to model ever-larger scenarios with 3D computational electromagnetic (CEM) codes emerges as a possibility, the main limitation is preparing the geometrical models received from mechanical drawings in PLM systems in a timely manner. This talk will talk about best practices to develop EM models that can have an impact on product design in EM effects. We will discuss common scenarios for aircraft, spacecraft and automobiles and how modern EM effects teams can leverage simulation to reduce the design cycle and achieve product validation.

Terahertz Communications at 300 GHz: Devices, Packages and System
Date:
April 11th
7:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Jacaranda Hall
Northridge, CA
Abstract:

Recent progress in semiconductor devices on compound semiconductor or silicon substrates have made it possible to produce more power and receive a signal with less noise at THz frequencies. Various integrated circuits for the THz radio front-end functional blocks, including power and low-noise amplifiers, modulators and demodulators, and oscillators, have been demonstrated in the last decade. In the first experimental demonstration conducted in 2004, bulky instruments originally developed for THz spectroscopy were used to transmit pulsed THz signals carrying a 7-kHz bandwidth audio signal across a short free space. However, recently, there have been several successful demonstrations of multi-Gbps data transmissions at THz frequencies with state-of-the art devices and components. In this talk, the first prototype of a THz wireless communications system designed under the ‘touch-and-go’ scenario will be presented. I clarify the concept of the KIOSK data downloading system, cover some considerations in this work, and present a brief link-budget plan. We will then overview technologies for implementing THz components operating at 300 GHz and their performance, followed by preliminary investigation of the channel responses and the experimental demonstration results. At the end of the presentation, we will discuss several issues that need to be addressed for the future of the THz communications systems, in terms of system architectures, packaging and potential applications.

Title:
Digital Predistortion of Broadband Amplifiers for Cable Access
Date:
April 10th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:
Session Abstract:Next generation cable infrastructure, e.g. full-duplex DOCSIS, requires broadband RF amplifiers with high output power, good linearity, and reduced power dissipation. It is difficult to meet the requirement even with GaN devices. Digital predistortion (DPD) has been proposed as a potential solution. However, DPD for cable access is quite different from the DPD technique commonly used in wireless base stations. Interesting issues include >1 GHz signal bandwidth, tilted spectrum, large peak-to-average ratio, and predistortion of multiple amplifiers by a single signal source.

High Density D2W DBI Hybrid Bonding for 2.5D/3D Applications
Date:
April 10th
11:30 AM (1.5 hours)
Location:
SEMI World Headquarters
Milpitas, CA
Abstract:

Chip and wafer stacking have made major inroads into several semiconductor segments, including CMOS Image Sensors, MEMS and HPC. As stacking becomes a necessity, it continues to expand into DRAM, RF and other markets. Microbumps are today’s interconnect of choice, but they face issues of scalability and reliability, together with underfill and polyimide layers introducing thermo-mechanical issues which worsen with large dies. This talk describes a room-temperature hybrid bonding process that eliminates microbumps and associated organic layers, resulting in high reliability, low cost, and high density interconnects with improved thermo-mechanical performance. It will present our D2W DBI development work targeting 2.5D and 3D applications.

Magnetism has had a profound effect on our everyday lives from compass needles in ancient times to the modern hard disc drive in today’s computers.  The existence of magnetic materials is rooted in the Heisenberg exchange interaction energy, , which favors parallel (or anti-parallel) alignment of neighboring spin vectors and their associated magnetic dipole moments as found, for example, in Fe, Ni, and Co.  In the past decade a different type of magnetic exchange came to the forefront of modern physics called the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction (DMI) given by , which instead favors an orthogonal alignment.  The combination of these two effects leads to exotic magnetic configurations characterized by a chiral winding texture of the internal magnetization; a type of order very different than that found in a conventional ferromagnet.  In this presentation, I will introduce the most important concepts in chiral magnetism including topologically protected magnetic features like skyrmions and domain walls, which can be manipulated by electric current with unprecedented efficiency.  I will present the magnetic imaging techniques (Kerr microscopy and Lorentz TEM) we use to characterize this interaction and discuss how ultrathin magnetic films can be engineered to enhance it with interfacial effects.  I hope to convince you that the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction presents rich new physics in magnetism and also opens the door to the design of future, energy-efficient magnetic memory.

Title: Using new physics of nonlinear electronics for analog computingSpeaker: Dr. Suhas Kumar, HP Lab Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 6:00PMTexas Instruments Conference Center2900 Semiconductor Dr, Building E, Santa Clara, CA 95051AbstractThere is growing interest for nonlinear electronic behaviors that may enable analog computing such as brain-like neuromorphic computing, which cannot be efficiently achieved using any traditional transistor-based circuits. Nonlinear electronic components, such as memristors and neuristors, which can emulate synapses and neurons, are enabled by device physics that are barely understood. This talk will summarize some new materials physics that have enabled new device behaviors. And the talk will also highlight how the new device behaviors can enable certain analog neural network hardware for NP-hard combinatorial optimization, which cannot be implemented with any practical efficiency using traditional digital electronics.

Demystifying Deep Learning
Date:
April 8th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom Electronics
Beaverton
Abstract:

Highlights: During this presentation we will take a look "under the hood" of the mathematics which is driving all the excitement. Advanced math concepts are not required. A demonstration will be done with a Python coded example.

The real breakthrough for the modern Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Machine Learning (M.L.) technology explosions started back in 1943 when researchers McCulloch & Pitts came up with a mathematical model to represent that function of the biological neuron; nature’s gift that allows all life to operate and learn over time. Eventually this research would give birth to the A.I. revolution that we are experiencing today!

Before there can be any discussions of deep learning, there are some fundamental concepts and terms that need to be understood which begins with the introduction of the perceptron and its' structure. The perceptron is the basic building block of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). While there are other approaches to A.I., which the other approaches will be briefly discussed, the ANN is the most fundamental approach and more closely relates to the solution to learning that nature has provided all of life; as we know it. There are also different classifications of ANNs, and they will be discussed as well, but to demystify deep learning only the understanding of a basic ANN is needed.

While there are many platforms that allow anybody to leverage the power of A.I. today via such environments as: TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, etc., the details of how these systems work is still a mystery to most users. During this presentation we will take a look "under the hood" of the mathematics which is driving all the excitement of the A.I. movement along with the associated challenges. While some knowledge of advanced math concepts would be helpful it is not required as the main math that one needs to be comfortable with is just multiplication and addition. The complexity comes in with the scale and magnitude of the number of operations needed and not the complexity of the operations themselves.

A demonstration will be done with a Python coded example. For those that would like to try it out themselves, the code will be made available during the session.

This is a continuation of a very popular talk we had on December 2017. Please join us for an encore/recap and more insights into business leadership. 

Growing up in a fourth generation family business, I was always curious why some businesses prospered while others stagnated or even failed. I focused my studies at Harvard Business School on small to mid-size businesses, finding their smaller size and flatter organizations made it easier to decipher the “signal” from the “noise.” In small and midsize businesses, authentic leadership, sound judgement and calculated decisions often have greater impact than market forces and industry trends. Post-graduation, I set out to acquire a business to grow and in that process evaluated over 1,000 businesses in over 200 industries, providing even more insight into what makes a quality and sustainable business. In the presentation I will share with you 15 key business lessons I learned both at Harvard and in my search for a business. I will demonstrate how I applied them to successfully grow my business.

The Expression of Motion - Kinetic Art with Engineering
Date:
April 4th
5:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Room PSC 140, Idaho State UNiversity
Pocatello, ID
Abstract:

Kinetic art works & engineering presented by Assistant Professor Dr. Volkert van der Wjik, Delft University of Technology, Neterland.

Kinetic art works are known as sculptures in motion, with the motions often referred to as a fourth dimension. This means that the sculpture does not only need to have one specific artistic pose, but a continuous variety of artistic poses in a sequence of time. A first step is to design the changing geometry or shape of the sculpture, which is known in engineering as the 'kinematic design' resulting in a mechanism or linkage. A second step is to design the actuation of the sculpture where driving forces and the masses of the elementsdetermine the behavior of the motion. This is known in engineering as the 'dynamic design' and is important for the perception of the motion: rough or elegant, monotonic or with tension, etc. In this talk I will give an overview of my sculptures and I will show how I used engineering to obtain sculptures with
expressive motion, in special for my large work the 'Taaie Tiller' (www.taaietiller.com).

"Performance, Reliability and Soiling of Solar PV Modules" - IEEE RELIABILITY SOCIETY AZ CHAPTER TECHNICAL MEETING
Date:
April 2nd
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
ISTB3 building, Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus
Mesa, AZ
Abstract:

Solar photovoltaics (PV) is one of the fastest growing energy generation technologies in the world. Overall, this presentation will focus on the performance, reliability and soiling issues of PV modules. In this presentation, the nameplate performance rating verification will be discussed. The reliability of PV modules over 25 years depends on module design, construction materials, manufacturing quality, installation condition, and local weather conditions. The initial field failures can be effectively minimized or eliminated through accelerated design qualification testing according to IEC 61215 standard. Failure rates in the design qualification testing between 1997 and 2013 will be discussed. Soiling is a major field issue, but it heavily depends on the local weather conditions independent of module manufacturers. In this presentation, the outdoor soiling loss monitoring methods and the indoor soiling deposition methods will be discussed. Using the outdoor soiling loss monitoring method, an accurate prediction of energy production loss due to soiling can be performed. Using the indoor soiling deposition method, the effectiveness of anti-soiling coatings, wind cleaning and rain cleaning can be determined.

IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter March Meeting and Seminar

Join us for a talk from SSCS Distinguished Lecturer from Prof. Arun Natarajan of Oregon State University on Monday, April 1.  Food and drinks will be provided during the networking event from 6:30 to 7:00pm.  The seminar will be from 7:00pm to 8:00pm and we will continue with networking until 8:30pm.

 

Abstract:

Achieving battery less sensors/wireless transceivers that can sense, compute and communicate enables a wide range of ubiquitous internet-of-things applications. RF-powering presents a robust, reliable approach for providing energy to such battery-less sensors. In this talk, I will focus on the key technical challenges for achieving wirelessly-powered sensors for representative IoT applications. Following an introduction to far-field wireless powering, I will present architectures and circuits with a focus on increasing wireless powering range and energy harvesting efficiency at the system level. Packaging and sensor size are also critical constraints for such systems and we will discuss how constraints on volume and weight impact circuits and architectures. We will discuss performance in the context of state-of-the-art and outline future research to further enable ubiquitous RF-powered sensing and communication.

Title:
Advanced Technologies and Solutions Associated with Non-Wire Alternatives for Integrated Distribution Planning
Date:
April 1st
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Engineering Teaching Research Laboratory
Pullman, WA
Abstract:

In the last couple of decades, there have been growing effort and focus to introduce distributed energy resources and power electronic based technologies in electric distribution grids. However, the adaptation approach has been more impulsive than proactive, meaning that solutions are not utility commodity yet, and have not been incorporated as an integral part of distribution planning processes. In addition, power electronic based systems are still considered as complex, and normally costly mitigation methods not favorable by most utility engineers. This presentation will focus on introducing the technologies associated with non-wire alternatives (NWA) as an integral part of future modernized grids. Examples of alternative solutions to be incorporated in utility integrated distribution planning (IDP) are: Grid-Edge Devices, Energy Storage Systems, Microgrids, and DERs, as well as control and automation platforms that enable deployment of NWA, and reliable grid operation.

The Advantages and Challenges of MIMO Radar for Autonomous Driving

Title:
The Advantages and Challenges of MIMO Radar for Autonomous Driving
Date:
March 29th
12:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
VEC
Long Beach, CA
Abstract:

Radar not only has found widespread application in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) but also is one of the key technologies to enable environmental perception for autonomous driving under all kinds of weather conditions. Today, a typical self-driving car has been equipped with more than 10 radars, enabling a radar-based 360 degree surround sensing. The radar sensors with high resolution and multi-functionality are highly demanded for autonomous driving. As compared to traditional phased-array radar system with the same number of transmit and receive antennas, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar achieves significantly improved spatial resolution by exploiting waveform diversity. MIMO radar technology has been receiving considerable attention in designing millimeter-wave radar sensors. In the talk, we will review the fundamentals of MIMO radar, highlighting the features that make this technology a good fit for automotive radars which are required to be high resolution. Topics will be discussed in this talk include radar waveform orthogonality, sparse array design, high resolution angle finding with compressed sensing, imaging radar, interference mitigation, radar machine learning and cybersecurity in  connected and autonomous vehicles.

Persistent Memory In Consumer Electronics
Date:
March 28th
6:30 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
Nvidia Building E
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Digital storage and memory are crucial elements in modern consumer electronics, whether in a consumer device or used for on-line cloud services.  With the advent of faster wireless networks and IoT applications, storage will grow at device endpoints, at the edge and in data centers.  The trade-off of performance versus cost will continue to favor the use of many different types of storage in a hierarchy.  There are new types of persistent memory that could replace today’s volatile memory and dramatically impact consumer devices and the services that support them and perhaps even upset tomorrow’s storage hierarchy.  Moving to non-volatile memory in consumer products enables lower power consumption and more power saving states, extending battery life.  This talk will explore important developments in digital storage and memory that will enable consumer services from devices, to the edge and the data center.

Location:
Qualcomm Inc. - AZ Multi-Purpose Rooms
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Fundamentals and Advances in Power Integrity Analysis Methods of Data Communication Systems

Speaker: Dr. Ihsan Erdin – Celestica Engineering Design Services

Abstract:

Although signal and power integrity practices are as old as the digital design itself, unlike SI, PI still remains as an elusive concept in the eyes of industrial circles. One reason is the cause-and-effect relation in PI analysis hasn’t been firmly established in practical applications. For example, with SI analysis, a logic failure can be traced to a noise threshold violation. PI analysis, on the other hand, hardly points out to a smoking gun with the same rigor. Starting from a qualitative and descriptive introduction of power noise fundamentals, the current analysis techniques for printed circuit structures will be reviewed and their limitations will be discussed with practical work-arounds. Some recent developments including a novel interpretation of the effective radius of a decoupling capacitor and multipin optimization of capacitors will be presented on sample cases.

Fort Huachuca Section Guest Speaker: Zero Trust Networking
Date:
March 26th
5:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
1140 N Colombo Ave
Sierra Vista, AZ
Abstract:

The network security methods organizations use to work today are unique in contract to just a couple years ago. Workers, devices, and applications will never again be secreted away within the corporate trust-zone (the perimeter). They are on the web and highly accessible. Ensuring secure resources access to these everywhere-employees (and the tools they require), demands a new approach. Companies are aggressively rejecting solutions that promise a hard-shell perimeter with an unfettered trust zone. Instead, the Zero Trust Security Model is rapidly becoming the default safety net. This lecture will shift paradigms, and provide an overview from which you may begin your own inquisitive exploration of a new world.

March 25th

Irvine, CA

Abstract:
Abstract

High performance computing strategies typically leverage parallel processing to reduce compute time.  Yet parallelism in software engineering is not typically employed in a similar fashion.  One reason for this is Brooks' Law, which states that it's impossible to accelerate a software project in proportion to the number of developers on the team.   Brooks' Law stands in the way of large-scale parallel software engineering like Einstein's speed-of-light speed limit held back intergalactic travel until the invention of the warp drive by Zefram Cohrane in 2063.

Brooks' Law was postulated in the last millennium, before the advent of REST APIs, NoSQL databases, Domain Driven Design, Executable UML, and most importantly - Codebots™.   It's generally regarded as an absolute truth, which leads to agile development methods with small teams of developers proceeding incrementally in a never-ending series of short sprints, often leaving mountains of technical debt in their wake.

Parallel Agile seeks to find a loophole in Brooks' Law by enabling elastic staffing.  Elastic staffing lets you add developers to your project much like Amazon adds servers to your "elastic-cloud" hosting solution.   Elastic staffing is enabled by executable architecture - a "space-folding" advance in software process that lets a large team start prototyping against a cloud database and REST API at the very start of your project.   Executable architectures are generated by a Codebot™.  Learn the rest in person...
