Title:
IEEE OC Computer Society & OCACM Presentation Meeting "Docker + Kubernetes: Holy Grail for Software Distribution and Deployment"
Date:
September 19th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Knobbe Martens
Irvine, CA
Abstract:
Event Details

Docker is a valuable tool for software teams of all sizes; it's been gaining momentum with everyone from open source developers to publicly traded corporations. Docker adds a layer of abstraction between software and the operating system, making it easy for people to build and deploy software on nearly any operating system. Because of this ease-of-use, Docker orchestrators, such as Kubernetes, have been built allowing for horizontal scaling of internet-scale applications using Docker Containers. This talk will go over the value of Docker and why you want to use it in the software industry. Speaker Bio Ryan Smith, UCI graduating class 2014, is currently a Senior DevOps Engineer at Veritone Inc in Costa Mesa. He loves cheeseburgers and developing in the open source community. His preferred programming language is Golang, works extensively with Docker, and deploys everything to AWS. In his spare time, he's developing a Serverless framework using Terraform.

Venue Change

Please be aware that this meeting will be at the Knobbe Martens Irvine offices. Parking validation will be provided to attendees:  tickets validated at building reception desk upon arrival.
Title:
Connecting Pre-College and University Engineering
Date:
September 20th
1:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Peralta
Mesa, AZ
Abstract:

Recent developments such as the inclusion of engineering in the Next Generation
Science Standards have greatly expanded opportunities for K-12 students to explore
engineering. As a result, many more students are matriculating into university
engineering programs with significant prior engineering experience which presents
challenges to both the K-12 education system and undergraduate engineering programs.
In this talk, I will discuss these challenges, and how to build alignment between precollege
and university engineering programs by identifying effective practices in K-12
engineering, reshaping university engineering programs to leverage students’ precollege
engineering experiences, and the important role that undergraduate engineering
students can play in transforming pre-college engineering education by pursuing
teaching licensure and careers in secondary school STEM education.

Title:
Tunable Sigma-Delta Data Converter Based Flexible Radio Frequency Front-Ends (FlexRF) for Evolving 4G/5G Applications
Date:
September 25th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
889
Newbury Park, CA
Abstract:

At the heart of all modern mobile communications systems, and all the industries and services that it enables (voice calls, messaging, social media, web access, streaming, etc.) is an actual radio. This radio needs to operate in a rapidly evolving, standards driven domain (e.g. GSM to EDGE to 4G LTE to upcoming 5G), and the technology solution to date has been to continually upgrade the radio hardware as the standards and customer needs have evolved. However, this is an inflexible hardware approach that does not scale well e.g. for automobiles or aircraft platforms (HRL's owners are General Motor and Boeing) that need to support “telematics” services on vehicles for much longer periods than a couple of years, without going obsolete. The goal of HRL’s “flexible radio front-end” (FlexRF) approach has been to leverage HRL’s expertise in the design of high performance "sigma-delta" wideband data converters and execute a wideband (up to 2.7 GHz) direct to baseband ADC receiver chip, a matching wideband CMOS DAC chip, and an active tunable bandpass filter to control spurious emissions in the transmit chain. The combined system forms the basis of a unique software defined radio that is not commercially available and yet shows a path forward to LTE/4G/anticipated 5G communication standards.

Tour of the Center for Neurotechnology at the University of Washington
Date:
September 27th
5:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
1414 NE 42nd St.; Suite 204
Seattle, WA
Abstract:

The Seattle Chapters of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society and the Signal Processing Society invite you to tour the Center for Neurotechnology at the University of Washington.  Founded in 2011, the Center for Neurotechnology is one of several Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) across the country funded by the National Science Foundation. The center’s headquarters are located at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle, and its core partners are at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and San Diego State University.

CNT members are engineering new ways to help the brain and spinal cord heal and recover from injury in a unique innovation ecosystem that includes researchers, educators and industry affiliates at multiple institutions and companies worldwide. We work together, with the guidance of advisory boards, to develop and distribute neurotechnology that is revolutionizing the treatment of stroke, spinal cord injury and other debilitating neurological conditions.

Its researchers are discovering and applying principles of engineered neuroplasticity, which is a new form of physical rehabilitation that uses engineered devices to restore lost or injured connections in the brain, spinal cord and other areas of the nervous system. At the same time, CNT neuroethics researchers are pioneering a framework for deep integration of ethics into neural engineering research and education, and we are doing this in close partnership with neurotechnology end-users.

The CNT is committed to the inclusion of disability perspectives in the design of devices intended to benefit people with disabilities, as well as promoting diversity internally and in ERCs nationwide through initiatives like AccessERC. We also partner with the UW DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology) program to broaden participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by individuals and groups that are traditionally underrepresented in these fields.

Issues in Digital Audio That Persist To This Day
Date:
October 3rd
7:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Digipen Institute of Technology
Redmond, WA
Abstract:
Issues in Digital Audio That Persist To This Day With SpeakersJames J. (JJ) Johnston and Bob Smith Presented byAES Pacific Northwest SectionandIEEE Seattle SPS (SeaSiPS) 

There has been a lot of argument, dispute, complaining, and shouting about tracks being too loud or too close to digital maximum. In this talk, we will show:

  • what happens to your signal, its spectrum, and its loudness (remember, loudness is a perceived quantity)
  • how this affects the ability to be transmitted via bit-rate reduction systems
  • how it affects standard "lossless" codecs
  • using graphics and audio clips, what happens to your music when you clip it digitally, cause intersample overs, and/or hypercompress in the name of LOUD
  • how this sort of clipping causes aliasing of other clipping byproducts and how intersample overs make a DAC fall apart in a different way
  • how a pleasant sound can become something else altogether
  • using a variety of statistics on particular clips taken directly from their intended digital delivery streams, exhibiting clipping, what one might call enlightened clipping, level compression, intersample overs, changes in loudness over a track, and how much spectral dynamic range there is in a variety of digital streams
  • that encoding/decoding such streams, especially with lossy codecs can create MORE clipping and MORE intersample overs, forcing both more distortion and higher required data rates for the reduced-rate music.

We are not going to talk about artistic judgements that are supposed to be LOUD, but rather about what happens after mastering when a clip has been pushed beyond reason.

KEEP IT DOWN A BIT. If you want to clip, do leave some headroom. That way, rather than having a delivered result that depends entirely on the actual DAC the listener is using, you can guarantee your market a consistent experience.

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION ===> Register-for-TEMS1018

Software has been more disruptive than ever for businesses in 2018. Companies that don’t understand this face the prospect of dislocation – e.g., taxis, banking, and hotels. Legacy market participants may feel they have the digital assets and people they need, but many lack the imagination to spot where the next disruption is coming from. In this talk Dr. Paul Trompeter will discuss why disruption exists, where it’s coming from, which organizations are affected, recognizing disruption’s analytics, speed and agility, and the business of technology.

Title:
Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence: What Electronics Packaging Engineers Need to Know
Date:
October 10th
11:30 AM (2 hours)
Location:
Seminar 1
Milpitas, CA
Abstract:

Summary: Advanced Networking Technology has been the key driver of internet traffic over the past two decades. It has spearheaded the prevalence of smartphones, big data, voice and video. The challenges and opportunities for advanced packaging in Networking Applications, IoT, Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence will be outlined.
Networking is now driving the exponential growth of Internet of Things (IoT) — more devices and machines connected to each other and the internet. Key to delivering the IoT ecosystem is Edge Computing. As more devices are connected to each other, the latency and bandwidth of the connections between the devices becomes a critical bottleneck. Edge computing strives to balance the need for faster connectivity with the cost, resilience and scalability challenges of hyper-connected devices. In addition to enabling IoT, Networking is also driving the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into IoT devices and in the network itself. AI is helping networks connect, repair and defend themselves, ensuring speed, scalability and security. In this talk, the key trends and challenges in Networking as they relate to IoT, Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence will be presented, with a focus on packaging.

Title:
Power Integrity Effects on Signal Integrity in FPGA Systems – Measurements and Analysis Using an FPGA Configured Vector Network Analyzer
Date:
October 11th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
889
Newbury Park, CA
Abstract:

Power integrity issues may create intermittent failures and signal integrity degradation in FPGA systems. This talk starts with fundamental concepts of power integrity and signal integrity and presents a novel method for power integrity analysis in FPGA systems by configuring the FPGA to function as a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) test instrument for its own power delivery network (PDN). This VNA measures the impedance profile of the PDN as seen by the logic circuits on the FPGA die and extracts an S-parameter model of the FPGA PDN, that includes the PDN elements on the FPGA die, FPGA package, and PCB. The S-parameter model is then used in circuit simulations to evaluate the power supply noise in the FPGA and the signal integrity in the FPGA I/O serial data links.
