Abstract:

Over the past decades the world has become increasingly connected, with communications driving both markets and social movements. Low power electronics, efficient communications, and better battery technology have all contributed to this revolution, but the cost and power required for these systems must be pushed further to make cheap, ubiquitous, seamless communication accessible to a wider community. In this talk I will discuss two engineering approaches to this problem. I will look at various approaches to drive the power down in radio networks that span across circuits and systems. I will also look at creative biologically inspired approaches to enabling very low power networks and IoT. Finally, I will discuss how by adding flexibility and building reconfigurable hardware, we can likewise build lower power and less costly consumer systems that can adapt across protocols and networks and work under changing device technologies.

Title:
IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Distinguished Lecturer Seminar: Ultra-Low-Power Integrated Circuits and Physiochemical Sensors for Next-Generation “Unawearables”
Date:
May 2nd
11:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Qualcomm Q Auditorium 6455 Lusk Blvd, San Diego, CA 92121
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Wearable devices hold considerable promise to diagnose, monitor, and treat various medical conditions and/or track the real-time status of athletes. However, most current generation wearable devices only monitor a limited number of physical and electrophysiological parameters that are, in many cases, only peripherally related to many health conditions or fitness enterprises. Furthermore, many such wearable devices are large, bulky, and rigid, thereby precluding seamless integration into daily life. 

Addressing these issues requires:  1) development of new sensor technologies that provide more actionable data in thin, flexible form factors; 2) engineering of supporting electronic infrastructure to condition, digitize, and wirelessly communicate data in an extremely energy efficient manner; and 3) new data analytics to process and understand newly generated data streams. This presentation will discuss emerging sensor technologies that can non-invasively monitor physiochemistry (e.g., glucose, blood alcohol concentration, and lactate) in thin, flexible, and energy-efficiency wearable devices, alongside a brief look at what kind of analytics are necessary to parse and understand this data. We will also cover integrated circuit building blocks and architectures that make acquisition and telemetry of sensed information so energy-efficient that that they can be easily powered from new local energy sources (e.g., wearable glucose biofuel cells). Such net-zero-power operation will ultimately enable devices that are completely autonomous and invisible to the user, to the point where users are virtually unaware of their wearable devices after placement – in other words, they are “unawearable” devices.

Title:
The Director Coach: An approach to filling the younger CEO “training gap”
Date:
May 2nd
6:00 PM (3 hours)
Location:
National Instruments
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

TEMS SCV/SF/OEB Webpage ===> TEMS-SCV-Website

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION ===> Register-for-TEMS0519

One of the most demanding jobs in industrial organizations is that of the CEO, where the “buck stops.” Although the responsibilities of the job have not changed significantly over the years, the age range of the individuals placed in the job has decreased. There is now much less time to learn and be trained as a CEO before they step into the CEO role – this has led to a “training gap.” With the rapidly increasing rate of new technology that is being created, in many cases a single individual has most of the elements of the business in their head and becomes the natural selection as the CEO. Often this technologist is one of those that has had little training in this management role. This has led to a need for a coach who becomes a very important player during the learning process that is critical to closing this new gap. This is especially true for startup and smaller company CEOs. Our speaker Ron Schilling has developed a method for such coaching called “The Director Coach” that he has developed over many years teaching management courses at Stanford University. Topics covered include:

  • What is a Director Coach?
  • What are the responsibilities and requirements for the CEO and Director Coach?
  • How to match a CEO with a Director Coach?
  • What are the tools for effective communications between the key players?
  • What are the financial considerations of the roles?

Title:
A Novel Foraging Technique for Swarm Robots
Date:
May 8th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
La Reina High School
Thousand Oaks, CA
Abstract:

Central place foraging is a problem domain which consists of finding and delivering resources situated throughout an unknown environment to a singular collection depot. This domain has tremendous applications including harvesting, toxic waste clean up, and fuel gathering for interplanetary missions. Foraging behaviors are the primary benchmark application of swarm robotics, which is the study of the complex group behavior that emerges from the local interactions of many simple individuals. A common issue within central place foraging approaches is inter-robot interference, a significant detractor from scalable group performance. To address this problem we propose a novel technique for central place foraging, the Multimodal approach. This technique separates a preliminary search phase from collection behavior, locating all of the resources within the environment before any are picked up, storing and sharing these locations amongst all of the agents. This information is then used by the collecting agents in order to select resources in areas in which there are no other agents, mitigating the effect of interference. The application of this approach to various simulated problem formulations resulted in a significant performance increase as compared to a baseline approach. This lends to our conclusion that a separation of search and collection can lead to the incorporation of more advanced routing techniques that further improve the performance of the foraging task.

Title:
Talk on "Terahertz Technology for Space and Earth Applications" by Dr. Peter de Maagt
Date:
May 14th
5:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
ECE
Tucson, AZ
Abstract:

The terahertz (THz) part of the electromagnetic spectrum falls between the lower frequency millimeter wave region and, at higher frequencies, the far-infrared region. The frequency range extends from 0.1 THz to 10 THz, where both these limits are rather loose. As the THz region separates the more established domains of microwaves and optics, a typical THz technique will incorporate aspects of both realms, and may even draw on the best of both. The two bounding parts of the spectrum also yield distinct sets of methods of generating and detecting THz waves. These approaches can thus be categorized as having either microwave or optical/photonic origins. As a result of breakthroughs in technology, the THz region is finally finding applications outside its traditional heartlands of remote sensing and radio astronomy. Extensive research has identified many attractive uses and has paved the technological path towards flexible and accessible THz systems. Examples of novel applications include medical and dental imaging, gene theory, communications and detecting the DNA sequence of virus and bacteria. The presentation will discuss the range of THz applications and will present the components and systems that are utilized for the frequency region.

The design, construction and testing of ESA’s Herschel and Planck observatories will be used as an example to highlight some of the hurdles that have to be overcome for a space application. Engineers have worked together overcoming many challenges that have pushed (sub) millimeter wave reflector and instrument technologies to new limits. Future systems foreseen in Earth Observation and Science missions will also be discussed and the drivers identified.

5:30 PM (3.5 hours)
Location:
Zio Fraedo's
Pleasant Hill, CA
Cost:
Admission fee may apply
Abstract:

Please plan to attend this meeting of the Industry Applications Society. The speaker will be Albert Marroquin, P.E., V.P., Electrical Safety & Dynamics, Senior Principal Electrical Engineer, ETAP. 

The revision process of IEEE Std. 1584 Guide to Performing Arc-Flash Hazard Calculations is almost complete! The revision includes the new arc-flash model; which is the result of the NFPA and IEEE collaboration effort to improve the accuracy of the incident energy calculations. The new model includes the effects of both horizontal and vertical conductor orientations (VCB, VOA, VCBB, HCB and HOA), plus refined models for arc current variation and enclosure size effects on the incident energy. The presentation will feature first-hand insight into the background on the laboratory testing and model development to help engineers understand how and why the arc current and incident energy results may be different. Furthermore, discussion will take place on what is perhaps the most difficult application consideration of the new model; which is the detection and classification of actual equipment into one of the five electrode configurations.  Last, some quick pointers on how the new model is to be applied in power system analysis software will be provided. 

The seminar will be presented by an individual intimately familiar with the arc-flash standard revision and standard, Albert Marroquin, IEEE P1584 New Arc-Flash Model Validation Task Group Vice-Chair and Ballot Resolution Committee Co-Chair, who actively participated in the model refinement and validation.

Deep Reinforcement Learn Appled to the Game of Qwixx
Date:

6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Advanced Test Equipment Rentals
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

A technical program starting at 6:30PM  with refreshments and networking from 6:00 to 6:30.

Technical Abstract:  Reinforcement learning methods have been steadily gaining popularity within the machine-learning community as an approach to learn gaming strategy through trial and error. One of the downsides of classical reinforcement learning is the limited applicability to games with a large state spaces which has resulted in the adoption of deep learning methods to approximate value functions defined over the state. However learning can still be difficult for complex games, particularly for those with a large stochastic component that can results in similar strategies having very different outcomes. In this work a deep reinforcement learning algorithm is presented to address these issues as seen in a representative dice based multi-player game known as Qwixx. Without knowing any rules about the game the algorithm eventually learns winning strategies by playing against a human generated method based on optimal control.

Arc Flash Protection - Arc Quenching Switchgear
Date:
May 23rd
5:30 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
Safari Room at the Davenport Tower
Spokane, WA
Abstract:

Learn about new technology to reduce incident energy, protect personnel and equipment, and reduce downtime.

 

 

Please join IEEE Industry Application Society in welcoming Cameron Clark to the Safari Room where he will share information regarding some of the latest developments in arc flash protection. 

Arc Quenching Switchgear provides:

Exceptional incident energy reduction – Reduces incident energy to less than 1.2 cal/cm2, far below methods that rely solely on a power circuit breaker to clear the fault. (For 480 V systems with 85,000 A of available fault current or less at a working distance of 18")
Enhanced safety – Exceeds C37.20.7 arc-resistant testing requirements by demonstrating acceptance even when breakers are removed, doors are open and covers are removed - without the need for ducts, plenums or special construction
Advanced equipment protection – Protects valuable switchgear assets from arc flash damage
Dramatically reduced downtime – Switchgear can be quickly returned to service after an arc flash event

How Arc Quenching Switchgear works:
Arc Quenching Switchgear detects and contains an arc fault in less than 4 milliseconds, drastically reducing the incident energy. It works by detecting the ignition of an arc inside the switchgear using the Eaton Arc Flash Relay and transferring it to the Arc Quenching Device. Arc Quenching Switchgear transfers the arc by creating a lower-impedance arcing fault, not a bolted fault, safely contained inside the Arc Quenching Device. This reduces the peak fault current by at least 25% and puts less stress on upstream equipment during a quenching operation.

Magnetocaloric Effect: From Energy Efficient Refrigeration to Fundamental Studies of Phase Transitions
Date:
May 28th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
San Jose, CA
Abstract:
http://sites.ieee.org/scv-mag/event/magnetocaloric-effect-from-energy-efficient-refrigeration-to-fundamental-studies-of-phase-transitions/May 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT2019 IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer (one of four)

The magnetocaloric effect, that is, the reversible temperature change experienced by a magnetic material upon the application or removal of a magnetic field, has become a topic of increasing research interest due to its potential applications in refrigeration at ambient temperature that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly [1]. From a technological point of view, the improvement of magnetic refrigeration systems can have a notable impact on society: a large fraction of the electricity consumed in residential and commercial markets is used for temperature and climate control. From the point of view of magnetic materials, research on this topic mainly focuses on the discovery of new materials with lower cost and enhanced performance. In addition, the characterization of the magnetocaloric effect can be used for more fundamental studies of the characteristics of phase transitions.

I will cover an overview of the phenomenon and a classification of the most relevant families of alloys and compounds. I will analyze possible limitations for the optimal performance of the materials in magnetic refrigerators, including hysteretic response and cyclability. Regarding phase transitions, I will present a new method to quantitatively determine the order of thermomagnetic phase transitions using the field dependence of the magnetic entropy change [2]. For second-order phase transition materials, I will show that critical exponents can be determined using the magnetocaloric effect even in cases where the usual methods are not applicable [3]. In the case of first-order phase transitions, more details about their hysteretic response can be obtained using T-FORC [4].

Learning About Kubernetes and Learning From Kubernetes
Date:
June 12th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
La Reina High School
Thousand Oaks, CA
Abstract:

Successful businesses providing internet-based services often find themselves rapidly faced with operating their services 24x7 at tremendous scale. All of these businesses therefore end up faced with a common set of very difficult core challenges. Kubernetes is a relatively young open source technology that has been adopted at an unprecedented rate because of the clear benefit it provides in managing such services. Beyond that, the general principles used in Kubernetes teach more general lessons about how to approach system design.

Kubernetes is cluster management system derived from Google’s “Borg” system used internally to manage their search cluster. The Kubernetes design draws on Google’s years of experience managing a massively large-scale system, packaging that knowledge into an open source system started by google and turned over to the CNCF for further development. It is designed to take advantage of linux containers to host micro services and manage them in a fault-tolerant and scalable way.

This talk will describe the building blocks of Kubernetes and how they fit together, and will also use that description as a case study to delve into the Kubernetes approach to problem solving, and how it helps companies to achieve more, and do it faster.

Abstract:
http://sites.ieee.org/scv-mag/event/past-present-and-future-of-magnetic-racetrack-memory/See-Hun YangIBM Research – Almaden, San Jose, CA 95120

Since magnetic domain wall racetrack memory was proposed 15 years ago, remarkable progress have been made (1) to pack more domain walls in a given footprint (density), (2) to inject them reliably at lower power (write), (3) to shift them back and forth in lockstep way (access), (4) to move them more efficiently (access), and (5) to detect them more effectively (readout). Especially a series of recent breakthroughs such as discovery of spin-orbit torques and exchange coupling torques in chiral domain walls have made the racetrack memory more promising for commercial products in the near future. In addition, the application to three-terminal one-bit devices has emerged to provide a new opportunity for racetrack memory thus attracting enormous attention in magnetic communities and industries since the technology is much simpler, more viable and useful for e.g. development of ultrafast high endurance memory and neuromorphic devices compared to the original proposal.

In this talk, I will review all of these updating the audience and provide its outlook/perspective in the end.
