Title:
TOWARDS UNIVERSALLY PROGRAMMABLE CHIP-SCALE THZ SOURCE, SENSORS AND SYSTEMS: BRIDGING THE THZ AND APPLICATION GAP IN THE NEXT DECADE
Date:
May 7th
10:30 AM (2 hours)
Abstract:

Silicon-based Terahertz systems is a field that is only about a decade old. In this time, we have seen a phenomenal growth of silicon systems operating at THz frequencies for a wide range of applications in sensing, imaging and communication. It can be argued that both the ‘THz gap’ and the ‘technology and applications gap’ is closing in meaningful ways in the THz range. Technologies beyond 100 GHz focusing on sensing, imaging and wireless back-haul links are getting attractive as we enter into a new area of highly dense network of autonomous systems requiring ultra-high speed and reliable links.

In order to move beyond this inflection point as Moore’s law continue to slow, I will discuss why we need to look beyond the classical ‘device’-level metrics of efficiency and sensitivity of THz sources and detectors towards holistic ‘system’ level properties such as scalability and programmability. Such properties are critically important for applications in sensing and imaging, as evidenced across sensor fusion technologies across mmWave, IR and optical frequencies. The ultimate programmability in THz sources and sensors is one that can synthesize or receive THz fields with arbitrary configuration and spectrum. In this talk, I will highlight approaches that cut across electromagnetics, circuits, systems and signal processing, to allow for such reconfigurability in THz signal synthesis and sensing, yet realized with devices that are themselves not very efficient. Particularly, we will demonstrate approaches to THz CMOS sensors reconfigurable across the three field properties of spectrum (100 GHz-1000 GHz), beam pattern and polarization, programmable THz metasurfaces with CMOS tiling, and enabling dynamic spectrum shaping and physically secure sub-THz links. In the end, I will comment on what could be the major directions for the field in the coming decade.

Title:

Date:
May 8th
1:00 PM (4.5 hours)
Abstract:

Virtual Event Details

Are you involved with Computer Game Development? Do you know of staff or students at academic institutions who are?  If so, please share this information on this event with them so they can attend this year's Competition.  The top 10 of this year's entries of games submitted will compete and be judged by professionals from the Computer Game Development industry. 

Building on the success of last year's competition, this year's is also being held Virtually!  

The IEEE GameSIG Intercollegiate Game [Developers] Competition, now in its tenth year, is an educational outreach project of IEEE GameSIG (which is part of the Orange County IEEE Computer Society, but does not geographically limit competing teams). The purpose of this event is to help students develop and demonstrate their skills at game design, development and promotion. They are challenged to show off a playable level of a game, live, in front of an audience of experienced game industry personnel and guests (which are hoping you will join).  The Computer Society Publication Office produced a 9 minute Youtube video about a previous live Competition/Showcase which is available at 2013 IEEE Intercollegiate Game Showcase.

The competition typically attracts 30 to 50 entries, from which the top ten are chosen to present their work to the "live" audience and judges. Three primary awards are given, plus a series of special awards for unique achievements. These special awards are different each year based on the nature of what the developers are showing.  Their is also a People's Choice Award.  More details on the competition can be found at GameSIGshowcase.org.

This year's showcase will be hosted by Chapman University and held Online via Twitch.

1:00PM - 3:00PM -- Competition Among The Chosen (Finalists)
     Each Student Game Developer Team will have five minutes to present their game and five minutes responding to questions the judges.

3:00PM - 4:30PM -- Game Demos (chat & play)
    We will have a casual game demo session for teams that did not make the finalists, networking, and chatting 
    while waiting for the Judges' decisions. Also, this will be the time to fill out the survey for the audience's People's Choice Award

4:30PM - 5:30PM -- Winners Announced and The GameSIG Cup Awarded
    Results of the audience's People's Choice Award announced.  Results of the Judges decisions will be announced.

Title:
Storage Interfaces
Date:
May 11th
1:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Storage connects to systems thru layers with interfaces between the layers that have evolved over time – smaller size, lower cost and higher performance.  Early on “dumb” interfaces evolved in the market from the wide interfaces of dominant mainframe and minicomputer interfaces, e.g., DEC RP0x, SMD, etc.  Over time the interfaces became smarter, serial and sponsored by industry consortia (e.g., SCSI, SATA, NVMe), while at the same time function moved around in the various layers (e.g.  RAID, Caching, etc.)

Four industry participants will share with you their experiences in making storage work with computers.

Title:
Towards the Next-generation Intelligence with Electronic-Photonic Integration
Date:
May 11th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:
Next generation intelligence relies on novel computing and sensing paradigms inspired mainly by the complex biological systems like a human brain. However, today’s conventional cloud computing and mobile platforms have been already challenged by the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). The performance and diversity requirements of these applications demand the shift towards hyper-scale datacenters, AI/ML super-computers, quantum computers, new sensing and imaging modalities, and new tools for understanding the brain. Merging the state-of-the-art CMOS with integrated photonics can answer many of these major technological challenges by unlocking new functionalities and enabling unprecedented performances that cannot be achieved solely by relying on the Moore’s law anymore.

In this talk, I will describe several state-of-the-art electronic-photonic integration techniques including 3D/Heterogeneous along with current and industry trends driven dominantly by the demands for co-packaged optical I/O. Furthermore, I will explain needs for monolithic integration and speed/energy requirements of such transceivers in near-future. Similar platforms and design methodologies can be exploited for LiDAR systems, and many other application areas.

Dr. Markus Beck: A Ubiquitous Solar America – More than a Dream
Date:
May 12th
4:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
San Jose
Abstract:

(As a Solar Scientist) Dr. Markus Beck has a dream, too. A dream of a clean energy future where every American has the chance to participate in the clean energy economy, where we respect our planet and our citizens, and value the role energy plays in our lives. The concepts Dr. Beck will present are not radical, but rather rational. He has chosen to present a top-down view—demand to supply—while it is equally valid to consider a bottom-up perspective. Besides outlining policy instruments that can facilitate the repatriation of the PV manufacturing industry and supply chain, Dr. Beck will go into more specifics for some of the existing constraints and the resources required to accomplish this ambitious task.

Title:
HOW TO BUILD AN 8-CORE HYPER-THREADED COMPUTER ON A BUDGET
Date:
May 12th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Abstract:

It can be difficult to find a computer exactly the way that one wants or needs just sitting on the shelf in a store. Some companies offer custom made ones but with a price to match. Additionally, no one source has all of the things that one would want. Quality becomes another issue as most people shop with price as a major controlling factor so companies are parsimonious in procuring the components.

Dr Morantz has combined his Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, and good common sense to build an 8-core hyperthreaded monster computer with strong performance and reliability while working with a financial budget to fits his own needs and desires.

This presentation covers this project from design phase to completion. This whole project took several months and has been very rewarding, both in having the computer that he needs and wanted, and in being a learning process. Much knowledge and experience was gained in the process. Dr Morantz will go through the steps explaining what he did and why.

 

Please note that this talk is presented by our Vice-Chair Brad Morantz, but is hosted by IEEE Foothill Section Computer Society

Title:
3D Packaging for Superconducting Qubits
Date:
May 13th
12:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Superconducting qubits are a leading candidate for constructing a large-scale quantum processor due to their lithographic scalability and relatively long coherence times. 3D qubit packaging, enabling the integration of more chips with greater functionality, higher I/O counts, and smaller pad pitches –- while maintaining qubit coherence –- is critical for scalable computing architecture. In this talk, I will present a microbump-based assembly approach to produce three-tier stacks with a qubit chip on the top, superconducting multi-chip-module (SMCM) on the bottom, and an interposer chip with superconducting through-silicon vias (TSVs) in the middle. I will discuss our work developing a double bump-bonding process to create the qubit-interposer-SMCM stack, focusing on electrical characterization, alignment accuracy, spacing and co-planarity.

Abstract:

The electronic components are increasing in automotive applications replacing earlier mechanical and hydraulics solutions. With proper protection and diagnostics, we can ensure that these electronic components (power semiconductors/transistors) perform the expected function and achieve fail silent (fault tolerant) operation by sensing the fault and adapting its behavior. They also incorporate advanced and robust diagnostic circuits that provideinformation apriori for safety to the drivers/passengers in the cars about the load conditions, faults etc. Such components are referred to as the Smart Power Circuits. Their designs are not much different from the conventional analog circuits used in consumer electronics topology wise. However, they have to handle a wide range of input voltage (5V to 40V) and wide range of currents (30mA to 4A). There are additional system requirements and design implementation challenges that have to be considered when defining and implementing such circuits. This seminar/tutorial introduces the State-of-the-Art requirements of automotive ICs, design techniques, R-L-C type of loads, thermal simulations, reliability and explains the various Gate Drivers like the high side driver, low side driver configurable high side/low side drivers. Power supply sequencing, level shifters, charge pump, voltage-current selector circuits will be presented. High voltage, negative voltage tolerant switches for diagnostics and impact of on chip parasitic bipolar transistors in automotive applications are discussed.

Title:
AI-enabled Wireless Networks
Date:
May 20th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Future wireless networks are expected to support a multitude of services demanded by Enhanced
Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable and Low-latency Communications (uRLLC), and massive
Machine Type Communications (mMTC) users. Heterogeneous devices with different quality of service
(QoS) demands will require intelligent and flexible allocation of network resources in response to
network dynamics. To meet these demands, future wireless networks must incorporate a paradigm shift
in network resource optimization, in which efficient and intelligent resource management techniques
are employed. Artificial intelligence, or more specifically machine learning algorithms stand as promising
tools to intelligently manage the networks such that network efficiency, reliability, robustness goals are
achieved and QoS demands of users are satisfied. In this talk, we will provide an overview of the state-
of-art in machine learning algorithms and their applications to wireless networks, in addition to their
challenges and the open issues in terms of their applicability to various functions of future wireless
networks.

Title:
Reliability and Resilience in Low-carbon Power Systems
Date:
May 20th
2:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Charlotte, NC
Abstract:

Our understanding of the classical reliability concepts of security and adequacy is increasingly being challenged by: (a) growing shares of inverter-based resources and variable renewable energy technologies that call for new operation and planning approaches, particularly to deal with decreasing levels of inertia and system strength, larger reserve requirements, and increasing volumes of distributed energy resources that are not “visible” to the system operator; and (b) the more frequent occurrence of extreme, high-impact low-probability events (e.g., driven by climate change), with potentially catastrophic impacts.

In this IEEE PES Distinguished Lecture we will discuss how there is a need for introducing new analysis and modelling frameworks to deal with the increasing fragility of low-carbon grids and exposure to extreme events. The key desirable features of such frameworks will be presented for both operation and planning and from both technical and economic/commercial perspectives, along with metrics, methodologies and modelling tools that can help make future systems more secure, reliable and resilient.

The key question that will be asked is whether the grid should be made “stronger” (e.g., through component hardening), “bigger” (more redundant, through investment in new transmission/generation asset) or “smarter” (through new technologies and operational practices).

Besides different examples taken from the speaker’s several international projects in the area, the South Australia “Black System” event of September 2016, the Australian system separation event of August 2018, the UK demand disconnection event of August 2019, and the Texas power crisis of February 2021 will be taken as “textbook” case studies to practically illustrate some of the general concepts presented.

Abstract:

This work presents the implementation of the digital read-out architecture of a System-On-Chip (SoC) ASIC optimized for Time Projection Chamber (TPC) detectors used in neutrino science. The CRYO ASIC works at cryogenic temperatures and performs signal pre-amplification, waveform digitization and channel multiplexing with minimum number of I/Os. The digital back end is optimized to work with cryogenic liquids (LXe, 160K and LAr, 87K) providing data throughput up to 1 Gbps and can be programmed to maintain signal integrity up to 25m cable length. Implemented in 130nm CMOS process, the back-end architecture consists of a digital multiplexer, a custom 12b/14b encoder, a data serializer, and LVDS (Low-Voltage Differential Signaling) drivers with pre-emphasis enhancing techniques. The simulated output jitter of transmitter is 29.3ps, peak-to-peak (0.15UI) driving a 25m cable at 1Gbps data rate.
