Summary:
The future’s more connected societies are in sore need of high-speed point-to-point wireless links with a data rate comparable to wireline links in both indoor short-range and outdoor long-range scenarios. Enabling applications include: optical fiber replacement, high-capacity backhauls, close-proximity wireless data transfer, etc. High-speed communication relies on two major factors: bandwidth and modulation format. The vastly under-utilized mm-wave to sub-THz band is very attractive for this application. However, the abundance of bandwidth in mm-wave/sub-THz bands cannot be easily utilized with commercially available low-cost Silicon-based fabrication technologies. Meanwhile, increasing modulation order puts stringent requirement on the high-speed mixed-signal interface design, i.e. analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog-converters and digital signal processors. In short, conventional transceiver architectures encounter serious bottleneck that limits achievable data rate and posts significant concerns on system cost and efficiency. The state-of-the-art solutions will be presented and discussed first, followed by our proposed way of implementing highly integrated ultra-high-speed wireless transceivers.

USING PYTHON AS A TOOL TO CREATE FINE ART 🗓

— Using Python to generate multi-layered photographic mosaics

Organizer: IEEE CLAS
register
Webinar Date: September 25, 2020 12Noon
Speaker: Paul Anderson recently retired from the aerospace Industry
Location: on the Web
Cost: none
RSVP: Virtual presentation via Zoom. Zoom link will be provided to registered participants prior to the event.
Event Details & Registration: IEEE

Summary:
Python is a very powerful software language that is used extensively in science and engineering applications. It has a wealth of powerful and flexible libraries.

In this presentation, Paul Anderson will describe how he has used Python to generate multi-layered photographic mosaics from a reference digital image. The generating algorithm is a stand-alone Python script which makes use of the numpy package for array processing, the Python Imaging Library (PIL) for image processing, and the scipy package for multi-dimensional array searches. The heart of the algorithm uses a resample-and-search technique.

A multi-layered mosaic produced by the algorithm is typically assembled in a 3D modeling application, and then combined with other graphic elements to create the final piece of art.

Design for Reliability and Accelerated Testing in Electronics and Photonics Packaging Engineering 🗓

— improved reliability, critical applications, product lifetime, DfR, HALT …

Organizer: Free IEEE-EPS Webinar

Webinar Date: Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Time: 8 AM
Speaker: Dr. Ephraim Suhir, Portland State University; Life Fellow of the IEEE; EPS Distinguished Lecturer
Location: on the Web
Cost: none
RSVP:
Event Details & Registration: IEEE

Summary:
This webinar addresses an evolving philosophy of accelerated testing in electronic and photonic packaging, and could be viewed as a possible extension and modification of Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) for applications where a high level of operational reliability is critical, such as aerospace, military, long-haul communications, self-driving vehicles, or medical. The highly focused and highly cost-effective Failure Oriented Accelerated Testing (FOAT) approach is suggested as a suitable experimental basis for the Probabilistic Design for Reliability (PDfR) concept. The PDfR concept is used to assess a product’s lifetime and the corresponding never-zero probability of failure in the field for the given product and application and make this probability adequate for the given product and application. The general concepts are illustrated by numerical examples.

LOW PHASE NOISE SIGNAL GENERATION UTILISING OSCILLATORS, RESONATORS & FILTERS AND ATOMIC CLOCKS 🗓

–The next generation of oscillators will offer orders of magnitude improvement in performance

Webinar Date: October 13, 2020 9AM
Speaker: Jeremy Everard of University of York
Location: on the Web
Cost: none
RSVP: https://mtt.org/mtt-s-covid-19-update/ link will be available to register prior to meeting.
Event Details & Registration: IEEE

Summary:
Oscillators are used in almost all consumer and professional electronic systems and the phase noise and jitter set the ultimate performance limit in navigation, communications and RADAR systems. It is therefore essential to develop simple accurate theories and design procedures to produce oscillators offering state of the art performance.

This talk will initially discuss the theory and design of a wide variety of oscillators offering the very best performance. Typically, this is achieved by splitting the oscillator design into its component parts and developing new amplifiers, resonators and phase shifters which offer high Q, high power handling and low thermal and transposed flicker noise.

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.
