Title:
IEEE OC Computer Soc. Presentation Mtg.: "Parallel Agile--Breaking Brooks' Law?"
Date:
March 25th
6:15 PM (2.2 hours)
Location:
Knobbe Martens
Irvine, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
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...

Title:
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.

Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

  

Automated control systems for providing power to critical loads have flooded the market and have been specified and installed into switchgear to reduce the need for input from the operator. These systems come ripe with preprogramed safety features and system failure recovery modes, but what happens when the automation fails, or the operator switches to manual?

This presentation will briefly review manual breaker control and hard wire interlocking for a 2 breaker ATS, SKRU (Solenoid Key Release Unit) for a three breaker UPS bypass panel, and interlock controls for a temporary rollup generator.

Title:
IEEE EMC Distinguished Lecturer Seminar: Fundamentals and Advances in Power Integrity Analysis Methods of Data Communication Systems
Date:
March 26th
6:00 PM (3 hours)
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.

Title:
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.

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.

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.

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.

Speaker Biography:

Dr. Natarajan's research is focused on RF and mm-wave integrated circuits and systems for wireless communication and imaging.

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION ===> Register-for-TEMS0419

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.

Title:
Switched-Capacitor Power Circuits: Coming of Age
Date:
April 4th
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
S-Cafe
Redondo Beach, CA
Abstract:

ince its first engineering design in 1930’s, the switched-capacitor circuits had been limited, until recently, to low power applications or high-voltage/low-current designs. Recent efforts have led to significant progress. The switched-capacitor power conversion circuits have been coming of age. Some of its variants achieved unprecedented performances in efficiency and power density. We will review a few basic circuits first to highlight operations. A few circuits are then presented to outline its technology evolution to the resonant switched-capacitor techniques. Several examples and prototypes are then presented. New circuits with projected unique benefits and record achievable performances are also presented.

Title:
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.

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.

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.

Title:
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.

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.

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.
