Lecture will be broadcast on Zoom and recording will be available. Please register to receive zoom conference details before the event.

Abstract:

Over the past several years there has been an upheaval in the automotive networking space as a number of mega-trends drive major changes:

  1. The trend towards a user defined car,
  2. Autonomous vehicle technology,
  3. Electrification

The presentation will cover these changes taking place in the in-vehicle-networking space, with an emphasis on automotive Ethernet and the efforts of the various standards organizations to address the emerging requirements.

Next we will explore the impact of these changes on Functional Safety. The autonomous car is a game changer in many ways, also in terms of safety. Today, safety goals are achieved by end-to-end concepts, with the driver as fall back. Once the computer is exclusively controlling, the availability of communication paths becomes crucial to allow fail operational systems. Vehicle safety is then requiring a combination of functional safety and reliability. In this context, the view on Ethernet ICs is changing. While current car networks usually do not impose safety requirements on connectivity ICs, IC vendor start to see the demand for products with a certain safety requirements and ASIL level. Beyond marketing figures and ticking off feature lists, there is more needed to compare the value of integrated safety features. This presentation will explain the context of functional safety in networking ICs, examples and outlook how the network will eventually support failure prevention.

Title:
IEEE SPS Chapter Technical Meeting (Speaker: Dr. Hoi-To Wai, CUHK)
Date:
October 18th
10:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Kelley Engineering Center
Corvallis
Abstract:

Prof. Hoi-To Wai (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) will deliver a technical talk titled "Non-Asymptotic Analysis for Biased Stochastic Approximation Scheme". The abstract is as follows:

"Stochastic approximation (SA) is a key method used in statistical learning and reinforcement learning. In this talk, we analyze a general SA scheme to minimize a non-convex and smooth objective function. We consider an update procedure whose drift term depends on a state-controlled Markov chain and the mean field is not necessarily of gradient type, therefore it is a biased SA scheme. Importantly, we provide the first non-asymptotic convergence rate under such dynamical setting. We illustrate these settings with the online expectation maximization and the policy-gradient method for average reward maximization, highlighting its tradeoff in performance between bias and variance."

 

The talk will begin at 10am on October 18, Friday. The meeting location is Room 1007, Kelley Engineering Center, Corvallis, Oregon 97331. The Kelley Engineering Center is located at the Corvallis campus of Oregon State University.

Title:
IntegratedTrue-Time-Delay based Hybrid Beamforming and Wideband Spatial InterferenceCancellation for Large-Scale Arrays on Cellular / V2X / Airborne Platforms
Date:
October 18th
2:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Qualcomm AZ
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

ABSTRACT

Future millimeter-wave networks (mmW-nets) will operate in the upper mmW frequency band where more than 10 GHz of bandwidth can be used to meet the ever-increasing demands. Their realization will require addressing a completely new set of challenges including wider modulated bandwidths, larger antenna array sizes, and higher cell density. These new system requirements demand fundamental rethinking of signal processing and radio architectures including major breakthroughs in radio front-end architectures to enable wideband mmW-nets. This talk presents integrated true-time-delay (TTD) arrays to overcome many of the challenges in phased array antennas (PAA) for wideband interference suppression and data communication. We will introduce non-uniform-sampling based discrete-time switched-capacitor circuits to achieve the widest tunable range-to-resolution ratio necessary for next-generation communication and beam acquisition. Integral to the proposed circuit is an analog-multiply-and-accumulate processor that incorporates a reconfigurable phase-interpolator for precise digitally tunable delays and multiplication of the inputs signal to an orthogonal matrix. Example measurements with 100MHz modulated bandwidth will be shown for a multi-channel TTD array at baseband with 5ns/5ps range-to-resolution ratio. We will conclude the talk with insight into our ongoing research on time-based circuits and systems to achieve GHz modulated bandwidth and development of a closed-loop optimization testbed incorporating GHz data converters and multi-parameter optimization algorithms.

Title:
IEEE Seattle SSCS and CASS Chapter Event - Presentation: High Power Density, Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators for High Performance Digital Core Supply Management -
Date:
October 22nd
10:30 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Electrical and Computer Engineering Building
Seattle, WA
Abstract:

Abstract:

Power management integrated circuits (PMIC) play an important role in almost all electronic systems such as smartphones, tablets, computers, electric vehicles, etc. On-chip loads such as microprocessors cores, memories, and analog/RF blocks require multiple supply voltage domains. Providing these supply voltages from on-chip voltage regulators increases the overall system cost and limits the performance due to the board and package parasitics. Therefore, an on-chip fully integrated voltage regulator (FIVR) is a critical need for high performance digital cores. Modern multicore microprocessors are utilized for real-time computing, coding, modulation, and multimedia processing. consumption demand from on-chip load such as hardware accelerators, and GPU, etc. is also continuing to increase. By adaptively varying both the voltage and frequency with respect to the changing load conditions, the overall power consumption of these processors can be greatly reduced. Also, the voltage needs to adjust at a faster rate to achieve the full advantage of dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS). These multi-core processors require multiple voltage domains to operate with dynamic voltage scaling.

In this presentation a topology for a fully integrated power stage in a DC-DC buck converter achieving a high-power density and a time-domain hysteresis based highly integrated buck converter will be introduced. A multi-phase time-domain comparator is proposed in this work for implementing the hysteresis control, thereby achieving a process scaling friendly highly digital design. A higher- order LC notch filter which couples the input and output voltage ripple is developed. The power stage operates at 500 MHz and can deliver a maximum power of 1.0 W and load current of 1.67 A, while occupying 1.21 mm2 active die area, achieving a power density of 0.867 W/mm2 and current density of 1.377 A/mm2. Efficiency obtained is 71% at 780 mA of load current.

Title:
Navigating Automotive LIDAR Technology
Date:
October 22nd
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Qualcomm AZ Multipurpose Room A/B
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

LIDAR is an optical analog of radar providing high spatial-resolution range information. It is considered by most of the automotive community (with one very outspoken exception) to be an essential part of the sensor suite for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), and ultimately, autonomous vehicles. Many competing LIDAR designs are being developed by established companies and by startup ventures. Although there are no standards, the performance and cost expectations for automotive LIDAR are relatively consistent across the automotive industry. Why are there so many different competing designs? We will look at the system requirements and describe how the design options can be organized around a few key technologies. We will also look at the cost and time-to-market implications of these design choices.

Title:
Results of the JUNO Jupiter Mission and the Difficulty in Designing the Spacecraft to Operate in Harsh Environment Existing in Jupiter, and Lessons Learned Applied to the Upcoming Europa Clipper Mission
Date:
October 24th
6:00 PM (2.5 hours)
Location:
Advanced Test Equipment Rentals
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

 Topics: Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) implemented a comprehensive magnetic cleanliness program of the NASA/JPL JUNO mission which is currently orbiting Jupiter and returning invaluable scientific data. Without the implementation of the magnetic cleanliness program, key scientific instruments such as the magnetometer science instrument as well the Microwave Radiometer (MWR) instrument would not be able to perform in the presence of high magnetic fields from the spacecraft and Jupiter. The magnetic cleanliness program was applied from early flight system development up through system level environmental testing. The JUNO magnetic cleanliness program required setting-up a specialized magnetic test facility for testing the flight system and a testing program with a facility for testing subsystem parts and subsystems at JPL. The magnetic modeling, simulation and analysis capability was set up and performed in order to provide qualitative and quantitative magnetic assessments of the magnetic parts, components, and subsystems prior to or in lieu of magnetic tests. Because of the sensitive nature of the fields and particles scientific measurements as well as the microwave radar instrument being conducted by the JUNO space mission to Jupiter, the imposition of stringent magnetic control specifications required a magnetic control program to ensure that the spacecraft’s science magnetometers and plasma wave search coil were not magnetically contaminated by flight system magnetic interferences. With component and subsystem magnetic modeling, simulation and analysis as well as system modeling and comprehensive testing, the project accomplished a cost-effective approach to achieving a magnetically clean spacecraft. The lecture will focus on the approach that was implemented and describe the scientific results that benefited from the efforts to control spacecraft interference and magnetic contamination of science instruments. This lecture presents lessons learned from the JUNO magnetic testing approach and modeling, simulation and analysis activities used to solve problems such as remnant magnetization, performance of hard and soft magnetic materials within the targeted space system in applied external magnetic fields and how these lessons learned are being applied to future Jupiter bound spacecraft such as the Europa Clipper and Lander. 

The NASA Europa Clipper spacecraft with its nine science instruments will orbit Jupiter’s icy moon Europa to investigate whether the icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life. Of those nine science instruments, there are two magnetically sensitive ones: The Plasma Instrument for Magnetic Sounding (PIMS) and the Interior Characterization of Europa using Magnetometry (ICEMAG). The two instruments will measure the strength and direction of the moon’s magnetic field to determine the depth and salinity of its ocean, which hence leads to unique DC magnetic requirements. The lecture will also focus on the DC magnetic model analysis that was performed on Europa Clipper spacecraft to guide design trades and provide an early assessment for the spacecraft in order to ensure that the unique DC magnetic requirements can be met and validated by test in the future.

Abstract
This lecture will start with an introduction to the IEEE Power & Energy Society highlighting the history

and development of the society from its origins in New York City in the late eighteen hundreds, till today. Over the last 135 years, PES has grown to be a global technical society of over 38,000 members in over 150 countries. Our membership includes industry practitioners, academics, regulators, government employees and students throughoutthe world, who find value in becoming and remaining members of PES. In order to help with our member’s lifelonglearning needs, we have just launched the IEEE PES University which is based on an online portal offering educational and training content for both members and non-members.

While fossil fuels have been the primary sources of electricity for the last one hundred years, their cost, uneven global distribution and global warming potential are encouraging world leaders to look for low-carbon or no- carbon energy sources. For example, the total global grid-connected photovoltaics (PV) capacity exceeded 500 GW in 2018, with US in the second place at 62.2 GW (12% of global total). Hawaii ranks 15th in the US with 970 MW. Simultaneously, requirements for reliable, secure and environmentally sustainable supply of electricity becomes paramount. While solar and wind energy fit this bill, these have their own challenges - primarily intermittency. Many believe that the smart grid – due to its inherent communication, sensing and control capabilities – will have the ability to manage load, storage and generation assets in the power grid to enable a large-scale integration of distributed generation. This talk focuses on potentials for distributed generation and the role the smart grid can play in their integration with the electric power grid.

Abstract:

Over the past few decades, there has been a plethora of research on VCO architecture and circuit techniques that led to significant improvements across all performance measures. However, with much of the work being directed towards the sub 10 GHz frequency range, there is a need to clearly describe the set of challenges and offer a range of solutions that address the growing interest in mm-Wave systems.

This seminar will present first, at the fundamental level, key challenges that the designer faces when attempting to design and optimize the performance of mm-wave VCOs on silicon technologies.

In the second part, we will describe some of the techniques, that are validated on silicon at circuit architecture and layout levels, that can be utilized to significantly improve the tuning range, phase noise and power efficiency of mm-Wave VCOs, while still meeting the required robustness level. The talk is designed to spur analytical thinking on a variety of mm-Wave VCO design challenges, while also offering a new perspective in addressing these challenges.

Title:
Communication chapter: Revisiting the Viterbi Algorithm and Its Early Secrets
Date:
November 5th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
10401 Roselle St
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Abstract: It’s been just over 50 years since A. J. Viterbi published his famous algorithm for decoding convolutional codes. While the Viterbi Algorithm’s core, best state or ACS, is well known, the need for tracing back in a code trellis is less so. His paper highlighted the role of block length in exploiting the then state-of-art bounds on error probability, and his novel method remains optimal in single-pass, maximum likelihood decoding and several other problem areas. Trace back was IP secretive in those early days. Yet it was the key to reaching the potential of both the codes and the algorithm. In honor of Viterbi’s many contributions, this talk revisits the VA, covering the insight of trace back as well, in theory and implementation. No prior experience in trellises and the VA is needed to appreciate this brief walk through a boom moment in digitial communications that still reverberates today.

 

Speaker: Keith Kunm (COMSOC M ’76) holds a BSEE from Arizona State University and MS from Stanford University. He worked at LInkabit in the 1970s for two of the earliest practical coding experts, Jerry Heller and Andy Viterbi, mainly in sequential decoding, troposcatter, packet radio and LSI codecs, and SSMA. He then worked a few years in CVTs for electric cars, but it was way too early. So he returned to digital communications for the next 35 years, lastly on US Navy’s Mobile User Objective System SATCOM. Chasing SBIRs from time to time, these days, as AI7SI, he is working on amateur radio SDR, full circle back to his beginnings as a ham in 1964.

Location:
OC Plaza
Irvine , CA
Abstract:

 

Prof. Sorin Voinigescu
University of Toronto
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Abstract: This presentation will discuss the fundamental concepts and the feasibility of high-temperature (2-4 K) Si and SiGe electron/hole-spin qubits and qubit integrated circuits (ICs) in commercial 22nm FDSOI CMOS technology,. The beneficial aspects of the SiGe channel hole-spin qubit will be emphasized in comparison with its silicon-only electron-spin counterpart. It is also shown that, at 2 K, MOSFETs and cascodes can be operated as quantum dots in the subthreshold region, while behaving as classical MOSFETs and cascodes in the saturation region, suitable for qubits and mm-wave mixed-signal processing circuits, respectively. Challenges in the design and testing of quantum processor units monolithically integrated with readout and mm-wave spin control electronics in commercial 22nm FDSOI CMOS technology, will also be covered. Finally, I will present measurements for full technology characterization at cryogenic temperatures up to 67 GHz.

Speaker Bio: Sorin P. Voinigescu is a Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Toronto where he holds the Stanley Ho Chair in Microelectronics and is the Director of the VLSI Research Group.
