The Chip Act: A New Era in US Semiconductors

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/388526

Welcome to Global Webinar co-sponsored by Pikes Peak Section and Panama Computer Society Chapter and co-hosted by a number of Chapters worldwide. The Chip Act: A New Era in US Semiconductors David Bondurant, Vertical Memory Matt Francis, Ozark IC This presentation will review 50-years of Semiconductor and Computer developments and historical competition between countries that developed. We observe the historical scaling of semiconductors (Moore’s Law) and the fact the Moore’s Law scaling is reaching it’s end. We review Beyond Moore changes to semiconductor processing and packaging technology required to continue computer performance improvement and why control of leading edge semiconductor and packaging manufacturing is now strategic. The Chip Act is the United States response to demands of Beyond Moore requirements and need to bring manufacturing closer to home. We review the Chip Act and update on it’s developments during 2023.

GRSS Webinar: Unveiling the Potential of GNSS Transmissometry (GNSS-T) for Remote Sensing of Forest Canopy Water Content: Challenges and Pathways to ‘Radio Realistic’ Forest Scene Generation

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/391721

Speaker: Prof. Mehmet Kurum, The University of Georgia, USA Thursday, December 21, 2023 (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Unveiling+the+Potential+of+GNSS+Transmissometry+%28GNSS-T%29+for+Remote+Sensing+of+Forest+Canopy+Water+C&iso=20231221T11&p1=43&ah=1) The GNSS-T method uses stationary or mobile GNSS receivers under the forest canopy, accompanied by an additional unit in the open area as reference. This webinar will provide the theoretical and experimental foundations to explain how the GNSS-T method provides information about the characteristics of Vegetation Optical Depth (VOD ) and Vegetation Water Content (VWC) measurements which could transform forest VWC monitoring studies. Co-sponsored by: CH05226 - Denver/High Plains Section Jt. Chapter, GRS Speaker(s): Prof. Mehmet Kurum, Agenda: There is significant evidence that vegetation water content, known as VWC, can serve as a useful measure of water status as it is directly linked to the moisture content of living fuel. Improved temporal and spatial quantification of VWC variations is expected to aid in the improved evaluation of how forests respond to drought, including tree mortality and wildfire risk. Direct measurement of VWC dynamics remotely can also be crucial for understanding and modeling hydrological and ecological processes. Presently, only coarse spatial resolution (25 – 50 km) vegetation optical depth (VOD) is globally observed by satellites. These observations are mainly derived from opportunistic analyses of measurements that were initially intended for other scientific purposes. In addition, validating spaceborne VOD poses a significant challenge due to lack of systematic ground-based VOD observations at the moment. Recently a new methodology called the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Transmissometry (GNSS-T) technique has gained attention to monitoring VWC directly. The method uses stationary or mobile GNSS receivers under the forest canopy, accompanied by an additional unit in the open area as reference. The logarithmic difference between the two measurements yields information on forest transmissivity (water content). This relatively new remote sensing (non-intrusive) approach could transform forest VWC monitoring studies. Its optimal interpretation, use, and relation to VWC have yet to be comprehensively explored. Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/391721

Semiconductor Innovation for Transformative Impact

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/398898

Semiconductor technology advancements have enabled the capability and cost of computing devices to improve exponentially over time, with transformative impact - witness the rise of cloud computing and the Internet of Things, which together with advances in machine learning have ushered in the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Today’s leading-edge microprocessor chips comprise over 80 billion transistors. The complexity of these semiconductor devices requires sophisticated design automation tools and manufacturing facilities, which are increasingly expensive and capital intensive: a leading-edge chip fabrication plant, or “fab,” costs roughly $10 billion. As a result, close collaboration between electronic design automation (EDA) companies, fabless chip design companies, chip manufacturers, wafer fabrication equipment (WFE) companies, materials suppliers, and outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) companies is necessary to sustain the exponential pace of technology advancement. This seminar will begin by providing a high-level overview to explain why chips are considered “the new oil,” with a market projected to grow to $1T by the end of this decade. Then it will discuss challenges ahead for the industry and the need for new innovations and talent. As an example, integration of nano- electro-mechanical switches with conventional CMOS transistors to enable dramatic improvements in computational speed and energy efficiency will be described. The importance of a culture of inclusion for spurring innovation with maximum positive impact will also be discussed.

IEEE CIR & CIS: GPS Categories for Knowledge Representation

Room: 300, Bldg: Ritchie Engineering, 2155 E Wesley Ave, Denver, Colorado, United States, 80208

Presentation: Categories for Knowledge Representation Abstract: The Global Positioning System (GPS) has greatly increased efficiency and effectiveness of multiple industries that leverage GPS signals for Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT). The next generation of GPS III and GPS IIIF satellites are poised to increase performance for GPS users worldwide. GPS consists of three segments: space, ground, and user. The Space Segment includes a constellation of 31 satellites with six GPS III satellites in the constellation and four more available for launch. When launches begin in 2026, GPS IIIF satellites will broadcast 60X more anti-jam power for warfighters. Lockheed Martin also supports US Space Force operations of the GPS Control Segment, which includes a master and alternate master control stations with 16 worldwide monitor stations that constantly GPS satellite signals. User Segment includes billions of civilian GPS receivers and low millions of military GPS user equipment. The GPS enterprise has worked together seamlessly for decades to deliver robust PNT services to civil and military users. One of the most important examples of user services is the augmented use of GPS for Space-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) services utilized by civil aviation for precision approaches. SBAS provides integrity assurance for aviation operations without Instrument Landing System (ILS) infrastructure. This presentation provides an overview of GPS satellite modernization and how SBAS leverages GPS for Safety-of-Life operations.
