Abstract:

Abstract  
Wi-Fi is an outstanding success story. Although it has been around for decades, it continues to evolve by adding new functionalities, improving performance, and delivering new services. It is difficult to imagine going one day without Wi-Fi. In this talk, we will discuss the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology, namely, Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 is a revolution compared to any of the previous Wi-Fi generations because it introduces capabilities that are essential to support a much denser number of devices per access point, best-in-class security, greater capacity, and lower latency. We will cover some performance characteristics of Wi-Fi 6, provide a market update, and conclude with future directions towards Wi-Fi 7.

Title:
What is my Measurement Equipment Actually Doing? Implications for 5G
Date:
August 11th
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Sherman Oaks, CA
Abstract:

 Dr. Jon Martens

Current microwave and high frequency instrumentation perform many tasks behind the scenes, even more so in the mm-wave and high modulation rate regimes, and it is easy to lose track of how the equipment, the processing algorithms, the setup and the signals are interacting.  By exploring the measurement mechanics within some common instruments under practical conditions, it may be easier to understand where sensitivities or anomalies might increase and how to mitigate them.   Through a study of example architectures and measurements, including those in the 100+ GHz range and those with wide modulation bandwidths where linearity, dynamic range and other physical metrics are stressed even more, mechanisms and ideas for better measurements will be explored.

Title:
IEEE EPS Society San Diego Chapter Seminar - Adding a New Sensing Dimension to Soft Electronics: From the Skin to Below the Skin
Date:
August 12th
5:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Webinar: WebEx URL will be sent out on August 11, 2020 evening to those who registered before the meeting.
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Abstract: Soft electronic devices that can acquire vital signs from the human body represent an important trend for healthcare. Combined strategies of materials design and advanced microfabrication allow the integration of a variety of components and devices on a stretchable platform, resulting in functional systems with minimal constraints on the human body. In this presentation, I will demonstrate a wearable multichannel patch that can sense a collection of signals from the human skin in a wireless mode. Additionally, integrating high-performance ultrasonic transducers on the stretchable platform adds a new third dimension to the detection range of conventional soft electronics. Ultrasound waves can penetrate the skin and noninvasively capture dynamic events in deep tissues, such as blood pressure and blood flow waveforms in central arteries and veins. This stretchable platform holds profound implications for a wide range of applications in consumer electronics, sports medicine, defense, and clinical practices.

August 12th
6:25 PM (1.1 hour)
Location:
Virtual via Microsoft Teams
San Diego, CA
Abstract:

Higher voltage transmission line design is heavily impacted by a number of electrical effects. While some lower voltage transmission lines may not require much analysis, these higher voltage lines may require a dozen or more studies. Optimizing one consideration may result in unacceptable performance on another aspect. In addition to identifying the studies that may need performed, this presentation also will present a number of transmission line design projects and how certain electrical studies impacted the final design.

Title:
The Silent Killers of IT Projects and How to Address Them (Free IEEE-USA Webinar)
Date:
August 13th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Washington, DC
Abstract:

Over seventy percent (70%) of enterprise IT projects fail. For larger, more complex projects over a million dollars the failure rate jumps to ninety-five percent (95%). These failures cost US companies roughly 0 billion every year. Two-thirds of these failures happen for just one reason. It’s not the technology. It’s not the team. It’s because what the business is trying to do is never fully communicated; therefore, it’s never fully understood.

The origins of this communication problem are not what we have assumed. Psychologists and neuroscientists have recently discovered that the human brain does not work the way we thought it worked. And that discovery has profound implications for how we need to manage our project communications. The purpose of this presentation is threefold: (i) To unpack how two-thirds of enterprise IT projects fail; (ii) To explain the mental processes that are responsible for those failures; and (iii) To offer a simple solution—a checklist—that can be used by anyone to prevent such a communication problem from destroying their IT project.

Title:
Building 5G networks for consumer use cases
Date:
August 13th
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Bellevue, WA
Abstract:

Consumption of video on smartphones and tablets will continue to be the primary driver of traffic growth over mobile networks during the next several years, while during that same time period, 5G networks are expected to drive many new and innovative use cases for industries and consumers that will begin to generate significant traffic load. Consumers envision a range of use cases that will place increasing demands on network performance in terms of high throughput and low latency, and consumers will expect 5G networks to outperform 4G networks even as network traffic growth reaches record levels.

 

To build 5G networks that meet the dual challenges of aggressive traffic growth combined with higher network performance over wide area geographical coverage will require that operators deploy multi-band 5G networks with ample amounts of low-band, mid-band, and high-band (mmWave) spectrum. The new 5G NR air interface, working in conjunction with technologies such as Massive MIMO and leveraging Carrier Aggregation between bands, will allow operators to get the most out of their spectrum holdings by maximizing spectral efficiency, while Dynamic Spectrum Sharing will enable operators to migrate their legacy spectrum holdings from 4G to 5G more aggressively compared to any previous technology transition. These technologies will enable operators to transition quickly to NR Standalone (SA) network architecture running on 5G Core, thereby realizing the full potential of 5G by offering next generation services and supporting new use cases with network slicing.

Title:
Orbit Options for Near-Term Space Solar Power
Date:
August 18th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
El Segundo, CA
Abstract:

Online Event!

Please register so we can send the meeting ID and password.

Studies of space solar power (SSP) for the commercial grid have usually considered transmitting power from geostationary orbit (GEO), via microwaves at frequencies below 10 GHz, where the atmosphere is relatively transparent.  Due to beam divergence from that distance at such frequencies, system sizes must be large, leading to power levels of 1000 MW or more.  However, the scale of the systems, and the need to develop low-cost routine access to space, make competing with traditional energy sources challenging in the near-term.  More recently, studies by the US Naval Research Laboratory have considered SSP for nearer-term niche uses in remote locations.  At such locations, providing power by conventional means can be challenging.  Many remote locations are typically powered by generators, which depend on fuel delivered at great cost, often through hazardous environments.  Power requirements for such users range from a few hundred kilowatts to several megawatts. Furthermore, some remote facilities are at high latitudes, which are inaccessible from geostationary orbit.  This presentation will consider alternative orbits.  Examples of such orbits are highly inclined orbits, which may be sun-synchronous, or have a repeating ground track, or both.  In addition, elliptical orbits may be considered which have relatively long dwell times over ground sites that are beneath their apogee.  Since non-GEO orbits do not remain over their intended ground sites, systems or constellations, of satellites must be designed, in which beam handoffs can provide a given ground site with power much of the time, while making maximum use of the satellites as multiple satellites serve multiple ground sites.

If you attended the last section meeting with Isaac Vanderberg and Launch Alaska, you might remember that one of the cohorts for Launch Alaska is a nuclear startup known as Oklo, Inc. Oklo’s first product is a micro reactor design that supplies power in the ranges typically required for small towns, villages, mining/industrial sites, and so forth (a few megawatts of electric power as opposed to hundreds of megawatts).

As we have been discussing various energy solutions for our state, we have, so far, discussed energy storage, wind, solar, hydro, carbon dividends and just about everything BUT nuclear power. However, if nuclear power can be made to work on scales that are suitable for Alaskan applications, this would be a colossal game-changer. Instead of barging in hundreds of thousands of gallons of diesel fuel to coastal towns (or flying diesel in to interior communities), a single power plant could potentially power its community or industrial site for years or decades between refuelings, and this power would be provided 24/7/365 without regard for the weather. Instead of using heating oil, people in rural communities could utilize either the waste heat from the reactor or use electric heat. Overall, this has the potential to drastically reduce air pollution and reduce the cost of living out in the bush, and the developments that result from developing micro reactor technology have the potential to enable other solutions as well.

The presentation will cover the following topics:

  • About Oklo
  • Fast Facts on the Aurora Powerhouse
  • Plant Applications and Plant Features
  • Technical Details
  • Fuel Recycling 

If you are interested in attending this meeting, please sign up, and before the meeting starts, join the meeting via Zoom. IEEE members all over the state (or even out-of-state) are encouraged to sign up and participate.

Advantages of Combined Heat and Power - Lunch Series
Date:
August 21st
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Seattle , WA
Abstract:

“Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogenera­tion, produces both electricity and thermal energy on-site [from a single source], replacing or supplementing electricity provided from a local utility and fuel burned in an on-site boiler or furnace. CHP systems increase energy security by producing energy at the point of use, and significantly improve energy efficiency.”  https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2017/12/f46/CHP%20Overview-120817_compliant_0.pdf

CHP does not replace the requirement for emergency back-up diesel generation.  What it does is provide a reliable and sustainable energy source without fear of power shutdowns due to drastic weather conditions or other cause that might prompt a power outage for the grid.

 

The presentation will focus on the high costs of electricity and how an alternate strategy to reduce overall utility costs by taking advantage of the combined heat and power (CHP). The CHP systems offer considerable environmental benefits when compared with purchased electricity and thermal energy produced on site. By capturing and utilizing heat that would otherwise be wasted from the production of electricity, CHP systems require less fuel to produce the same amount of energy. Find out more on how you may be able use this technique to save costs and energy.

MD: Multimedia Disinformation - Is there a Doctor in the House?
Date:
August 22nd
10:00 AM (2 hours)
Location:
Webinar only
Torrance, CA
Abstract:

So-called “deep fake” technologies have the potential to create audio and video of real people saying and doing things they never said or did. The technology required to create these digital forgeries is rapidly developing. It is on the verge of becoming commoditized to the point where anybody with a laptop computer, very modest investment in software and minimal technical skill will have the capability to create realistic audiovisual forgeries. Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques are making deep fakes increasingly realistic and resistant to detection. Individuals and businesses will face novel forms of exploitation, intimidation, and sabotage. Things have been bad with disinformation polluting the information environment. They are about to get a lot worse. What is to be done?

Chip-Scale Wave-Matter Interactions at RF-to-Light Frequencies: Circuits, Systems and Applications
Date:
August 25th
9:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Van Nuys, CA
Abstract:

Ruonan Han

Traditional electromagnetic (EM) spectral sensors using integrated circuit technologies (e.g. automotive radars, security imagers, cameras, etc.) are normally based on remote wave scattering or absorption by macroscopic objects at remote distance; the operations are also not selective in wave frequencies. In the past couple of years, a new paradigm of chip-scale EM spectral sensing emerges with features complementary to the above: they utilize various modalities of interactions between EM waves with high-precision frequency control and microscopic particles (molecules, atoms, etc.) with close proximity to the chip. This progress is enabled by the recent advances of silicon devices and processes, as well as the extension of circuit operation frequencies into the terahertz regime. Chip-scale sensing and metrology systems with new capabilities, higher performance and unprecedented affordability now become possible. Examples include THz gas spectroscopy sensors, on-chip “atomic-clock-grade” frequency references, room-temperature CMOS-quantum magnetometers, etc. This talk will present the basic physics of the some wave-matter interactions, key enabling technologies, as well as the designs and prototypes of a few chip systems in the category described above. We will also discuss their potential applications in bio- chemical analysis, wireless networks, PNT (positioning, navigation & timing), security and so on.

Date:
August 31st
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Irvine, CA
Abstract:

The rapidly changing technologies and access to software through connected platforms have blurred the lines between consumer and medical products. This has historically resulted in some challenges for healthcare regulators and industry to recognize software as medical devices (SaMDs) and applicable regulatory requirements. The COVID-19 pandemic has also affected these products in more than one way including: demand, regulatory deadlines and overall impact to healthcare.

 

During this presentation we will cover:

- Impact that Covid-19 is having to these types of devices and possible Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) pathways

- Specific regulatory challenges that the non-physical nature of software raises

- Review of the definition and distinction between a SaMD and medical device software

- International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) recent developments

- EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) required changes

- Discussion of FDA’s pre-certification program for SaMD development

- Requirements for Quality Management System and key characteristics for SaMDs

- Review of IEC 62304- Software Lifecycle Process Standard and key considerations for Design History File

- Clinical Evaluation considerations of SaMDs

 

Throughout the presentation, we will highlight recent regulatory changes as they apply to Medical Device software and how businesses can best prepare for upcoming regulatory submissions.
