Title:
Analog/Mixed-Signal Design Challenges in 7-nm CMOS and Beyond
Date:
May 23rd
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
AZ
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

 

The economics of CMOS scaling remain lucrative with 7-nm mobile SoCs expected to be commercialized in 2018. Driven by careful design/technology co-optimization, modest reduction in fin, gate, and interconnect pitch as well as process innovations continue to offer compelling node-to-node power, performance, area, and cost benefits to advance logic and SRAM to the next foundry node. However, analog/mixed-signal circuits do not fully realize these improvements. They become more cumbersome to design, having worse parasitic resistance and capacitance, stronger layout-dependent effects, and layout growth in some situations. Furthermore, early adopters of these cutting-edge finFET nodes must cope with the complications of design concurrent with technology development for shorter product time-to-market. We provide an overview of the key process technology elements enabling 7 nm and beyond to address analog/mixed-signal design challenges. From this insight, we offer layout guidelines aimed to reduce design vulnerability to technology and model immaturity.

Title:
WCOM: a new Chinese satellite mission for studies of the global water cycle
Date:
May 30th
5:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Arms Laboratory
Pasadena, CA , CA
Abstract:

The Water Cycle Observation Mission (WCOM) is the first Earth science driven satellite mission of China
with the most synergetic capabilities for global water cycle observations. WCOM is currently under
engineering phase and will be launched around 2020.  WCOM aims to measure the global water cycle under
global changes through synchronous acquisition of its key elements in an accurate manner. Key elements
including soil moisture, ocean salinity, snow water equivalent, soil freeze-thaw, atmospheric water
vapor, precipitation and other associated parameters will be measured by improving the accuracy and
synchronization. The resulted consistent and accurate datasets will enable us to refine the long-term satellite observations over the
past decades, and to represent the changing trend in hydrological elements which are needed for global change studies.
The mission concept of WCOM satellite is a combination of active and passive microwave remote sensors with a wide frequency coverage. The WCOM satellite will be flown with a 6:00 am/pm sun synchronous polar orbit at about 600 km height. The WCOM satellite design provides not only the most sensitive microwave information of the target element but also the environmental variables which are needed in the
retrieval algorithms.

Title:
Antenna and RF Shielding Fundamentals Workshop
Date:
June 1st
11:45 AM (3.8 hours)
Location:
Automobile Driving Museum (ADM)
El Segundo, CA
Abstract:

TECHNICAL PROGRAM:

Antenna Factor – A Deceptively Simple Parameter - Abstract:  Antennas used for EMI measurements are employed as transducers that convert field strength to antenna terminal voltage. While the concept is quite simple, the reality is that antenna factors are affected by a great many characteristics of the measurement setup, including the presence or absence of a reflective “ground” plane, the height of the antenna above the ground or chamber floor, the type of antenna, the uniformity of the field being measured, the distance between the antenna used for measurement and the source being measured, and the impedance match between the antenna and its load. This presentation will provide a basic definition of receive and transmit antenna factors, and discuss some of the setup characteristics that may affect them.

Shielding Fundamentals - Abstract:  Various approaches have been employed over time to describe electromagnetic shielding and its effectivity, but perhaps the most well known relies heavily on theoretical development by S. Schelkunoff. Developed based on impedance relationships at interfaces, observed and/or expected behavior can be described using simple equations. Related discussions focus on engineering aspects of shielding including design and magnetic effects.

Title:
IEEE SoCal Tech-Talk - The Benefits of Concurrency in Action – A Rolls- Royce Case Study
Date:
June 10th
2:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
18021 Cowan
Irvine, CA
Abstract:

The lecture will be based on the Concurrent Product Development improvement journey in Rolls-Royce Future Programmes. The messages are generic but probably most useful for high technology industries such as Aerospace, High Value Manufacturing and Defence.

 

Rolls-Royce formed cross-functional teams to deploy Concurrent Product Development (CPD) improvement at three of its civil aerospace locations: Indianapolis, Berlin, and in Future Programmes at its Derby headquarters in the UK. These teams are implementing pillars of CPD practice that have a proven track record for driving not only time compression and cost reduction, but also innovation.

During the first 3 years of the improvement, Derby made significant gains toward best-in-class practices and has recently accelerated change by incorporating these practices into the business plan deployment. The global teams are being transformed into a creative, more effective work organisation that will enable Rolls-Royce to remain a global leader in aerospace.

Title:
Physical Layer Millimeter-wave Communications
Date:
June 12th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Building 99
Redmond, WA
Abstract:

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communications is viewed as the key enabler of 5G cellular networks due to vast spectrum availability that could boost peak rate and capacity. Due to increased propagation loss in mmWave band, transceivers with massive antenna array are required to meet link budget. While massive antenna arrays enable high gain, directionality and user multiplexing, practical realizations face many challenges in radio design and physical layer processing. In this talk, we first review emerging massive array architectures for mmWave communications and compare their performance, power consumption, and cost with comprehensive hardware block model under typical application use cases. We then discuss two important physical layer design aspects in mobile mmWave networks: directional link establishment via initial access and directional link maintenance via mmWave channel tracking. Lastly, we present the state-of-the-art designs of current mmWave standards, discuss their limitation and provide perspectives on innovative approaches for performance boosts and hardware improvements.

Studying Earthquake Faults: From the Sky and with Boots on the Ground
Date:
June 16th
10:00 AM (12 hours)
Location:
The Terraces HOA Clubhouse
Rolling Hills Estate, CA
Abstract:

California’s earthquake faults take up the motion of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates. Tectonic deformation of the Earth’s crust can be measured using the Global Positioning System (GPS), differenced radar images, and topography measured from small UAVs (drones). Combining the measurements with computational models makes it possible to understand past earthquakes and current earthquake fault behavior. The measurements show triggered slip on networks of faults in southern California following moderate to large earthquakes. A significant portion of the slip is aseismic, which would reduce the earthquake hazard. Analysis of regional crustal deformation shows a bifurcating plate boundary with two branches that extend from the Gulf of California and follow the San Andreas fault system, and Eastern California Shear Zone. The analysis also can be used to rank relative activity between fault systems.
