Plenary Talk I

Chromebooks, USB-C and Google PI/SI Research

TIME

11:00am – 11:45am, Tuesday, 15 May 2018

VENUE

Summit 2, Level 3

SPEAKER

Mark Hayter
Senior Engineering Director, Google

 

 

 

ABSTRACT

The Chromebook is a new, faster computer. It starts in seconds, and offers thousands of apps, including Web applications and Android apps. The Chrome OS operating system is automatically updated to ensure the computer remains secure and gets better over time. The Chrome OS hardware team makes Chromebook reference designs and develops new technologies for them. The team was heavily involved in the USB-C development and Google was an early adopter in laptops, tablets and phones. The USB-C connector is used to provide up to 100W of power, high speed signals for data and video, and low speed signals for configuration. It therefore presents many SI, PI and EMC challenges. Starting from a system view of USB-C the presentation will introduce some of the research done by the Google Signal Integrity and Power teams as they implemented it in devices. It will conclude with some forward-looking speculation on SI tools.

Plenary Talk II

Frontiers in Computational Time Reversal for Electromagnetic Synthesis

TIME

11:45am – 12:30pm, Tuesday, 15 May 2018

Summit 2, Level 3

SPEAKER

Wolfgang J. R. Hoefer
Professor Emeritus, University of Victoria, Canada

ABSTRACT

Time reversal may strike us as a frivolous idea since we are unable to reverse the flow of time in our universe. However, our computational models of the laws of physics – notably our models of wave propagation – empower us to commute freely between virtual past and virtual future, and thus to interchange cause and effect. This capability has opened new frontiers in acoustic and electromagnetic wave engineering. Over the past twenty-five years, scientists and engineers have developed novel concepts that exploit the time symmetry of the wave equation and the resulting ability to reverse causality in the virtual realm. The talk will explore the features and challenges of computational time reversal, demonstrate the methodology by means of live simulation examples, and discuss its applications in real-world engineering, notably in imaging, remote sensing, EMC, and electromagnetic field structure synthesis.

Plenary Talk III

Marriage of Computational Electromagnetics and Electromagnetic Compatibility

TIME

11:00am – 11:45am, Wednesday, 16 May 2018

Professor, Purdue University, USA

 

ABSTRACT

In electromagnetic compatibility, reside some of the most complicated electromagnetic analysis problems. In designing highly complex electromagnetic systems, some of the side effects of coupling, radiation, and interference are unintended.  The challenge in EMC research is the mitigation of these unwanted side effects. These side effects generally give rise to the deterioration of the performance or even failure of a system.

Given symptoms of degraded performance, an EMC engineer is tasked to identify the root causes and find remedies.  Hence, an EMC engineer to a dysfunctional electrical system is very much like a doctor to a malaise human body.

To help EMC engineers identify the root-cause of the symptoms, it is best to provide EMC engineers with as much data as possible. These data can be collected experimentally with broadband or time-domain techniques. Field scanning techniques have been used to collect these data, and they can be painfully slow. A prerogative is to design systems that can expedite the collection of these data.

These data can be collected passively or actively. In passive data collection, as little interference to the operation of the system is done. In active data collection, signals can be injected into the system to precipitate different responses from the system. Also, to get as much response from the system, data should be collected to be as close to the source of the noise as possible.

Given the massive amount of data that these experiments can generate, the onus is upon the theorists to analyze them and make sense of these data.  There are a whole sleuth of methods that can be used to analyze these data. One possible candidate is the characteristic mode analysis.  Another possibility is the use of vector fitting method, model order reduction, and compact modeling to come up with simple models that can explain the character of the data collected.  Synthesis methods can also be used to construct these simple models to match the experimental data.  Also, many methods developed in inverse scattering/source can be used to help advance this field.

Analysis methods for EMC are generally slow. Hence, pressing research to expedite these analysis methods is needed.  Fast algorithms in both CEM and inverse analysis are needed.  To expedite the analyses, advancement in large scale computing such as massively parallel computing can be used.  Moreover, ideas from recent advances in expert systems and machine learning can transferred to EMC to solve pressing difficult problems.

Plenary Talk IV

Wireless Chip Area Network (WCAN): A New Paradigm for RF Microelectronics and Radio Communications

TIME

11:45am – 12:30pm, Wednesday, 16 May 2018

VENUE

Rooms 334, 335, 336

SPEAKER

Yueping Zhang
Professor, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

 
ABSTRACT

Considering the trend of wireless area network shrinkage in coverage to increase capacity and speed, Zhang proposed the concept of wireless chip area network (WCAN) in 2002. WCAN uses wireless technology to overcome the bottleneck of wired technology to realize interconnects among circuit cores in a chip (Intra-chip) or among different chips in a module (Inter-chip). WCAN, as a new paradigm for wireless communications and RF microelectronics, has begun to receive considerable attention recently. This talk will provide an introduction to WCAN. Emphasis will be given to the fundamental research in the characterization of chip-scale radio channels for WCAN. It is shown that the guided waves dominate the chip-scale radio propagation. This talk will also touch on some key issues in the design of WCAN using modern integrated circuit technology such as coupling mechanisms and effects between on-chip antenna and inductor or coplanar waveguide.
