1Title: 'Technology + Journalism = Solutions Journalism. Experiences in Real-time Air Quality Monitoring using APIs & Low Cost Devices. (IEEE AP/ED Bombay Chapter – Seminar Talk)
Speaker:
Dr.Ronak Sutaria, Respirer Living Sciences Pvt.Ltd.
Date & Venue: 29-03-2017, Girish Gaitonde conference room, Girish Gaitonde bldg., 2nd floor, EE Dept., IIT Bombay- 400076.
Abstract: This talk highlighted some key technology aspects which include the device we've built, the server side stack which includes some Big Data tech like Apache Cassandra, KairosDB, REST APIs & Data Viz. The larger theme of the talk was about Air Pollution/Quality Issues and the steps that can be taken by us as 'Citizen Scientists'.
2Title: Transistor Variation on Industrial Scale: Measurement and Analysis on Intel 14nm Logic FinFET Technology
Speaker:
Dr. Sourabh Dongaonkar, Intel, Hillsboro, Oregon, USA
Date & Venue: 17-02-2017, Girish Gaitonde conference room, Girish Gaitonde bldg., 2nd floor, EE Dept., IIT Bombay- 400076.
Abstract: Threshold voltage (Vth) variation in transistors is one of the most important factors in determining the success of a process technology. With ever increasing emphasis on low power operation, the random Vth variation is often the fundamental factor in determining the lowest operating voltage for a chip. A ring oscillator based approach for fast,high-volume collection of transistor Vth data was discussed during this talk with a demonstration.
3Title: Enabling Critical Systems in advanced CMOS nodes*( IEEE AP/ED Bombay Chapter Talk)
Speaker:
Vincent Huard, ST Microelectronics, Crolles, France
Date & Venue: 03-02-2017, Girish Gaitonde conference room, Girish Gaitonde bldg., 2nd floor, EE Dept., IIT Bombay- 400076.
Abstract: Nowadays, future critical systems are designed in advanced CMOS nodes where reliability challenges are now an important detractor. The reliability challenges that are lying in front of us and various techniques for how to propagate reliability simulations in various design parts and new innovative compensation techniques were the key highlights discussed during the talk.
