Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the culmination of advances on several fronts, and is probably the most significant area of development in radio systems today. This talkwill introduce the concepts of (1) oversampling and undersampling as it applies to SDR, (2) correctly driving and implementing an A/D converter, and (3) the firmware and software portions of SDR. A comparison with state-of-the art conventional analog circuitry will be presented, along with a live demonstration of SDR.
Storage Visions focuses on digital storage and the creation, production, distribution, archiving and use of commercial as well as user-generated content. IEEE-CNSV is an Organizational Sponsor
of this annual conference, which immediately precedes the International CES in Las Vegas. CNSV members should register here
to receive an early registration savings of $100.
This talk will describe the challenges engineers face in deploying Computer Vision on embedded platforms, and how every Computer Vision solution seems to require its own computationally demanding algorithm. It will also explore the opportunities ahead as low-cost embedded devices such as wearables promise a world full of vision-enabled devices.
Cell analysis is a bit like the air we breathe: nobody thinks about it much, but try taking it away and people take rapid notice. Without cell analysis, it would be impossible to perform blood counting - a routine diagnostic test performed about 300 million times a year worldwide. This talk will show how cell analysis is done today, and what exciting innovations are coming out that will revolutionize how it will be done tomorrow.
This special program will introduce CODE
, a documentary film about debugging the gender gap and bridging the digital divide. It will also address the questions: Why does the gender gap and digital divide in tech continue to grow? and What will society gain from having a more diverse group programming the products upon which we so heavily depend?
ROLM revolutionized two industries: military computers and telecommunications. Its Great Place to Work philosophy imprinted a work/play culture that remains the hallmark of Silicon Valley today. Katherine Maxfield’s entertaining talk will reveal ROLM’s challenges and innovations, its triumphs and missteps, and the frustrations faced after IBM bought it in the biggest deal Silicon Valley had ever seen.
Tim Macmillan will present the rich history of the design and use of camera arrays in the worlds of photography and cinema effects, starting with the genesis of motion pictures nearly 150 years ago. He will chart the design philosophies that led him to explore the modern technologies enabling this effect, and he will also look at how the new wave of imaging technologies are enabling new and surprising applications.
Disruptive technologies have caused dramatic changes in computing technology for decades, often in unacknowledged ways. In this talk, Dr. Dileep Bhandarkar will paint a picture that puts these changes into perspective, and which shows how this series of disruptions have set a course that has evolved from the mainframe to the current smartphone, mobile and cloud computing world.
IEEE-CNSV will have a booth on the Exhibit Floor at this event, thus providing CNSV members with a great vehicle for publicizing their skills as well as the merits of our organization. CNSV members also receive special pricing for this conference, and two CNSV members will be awarded full conference admission as well. Many aspects of this event are FREE
, so register now on the conference website.
This talk will describe the search for a second genesis of life in our Solar System, which is a search for a material system that enables Darwinian evolution but also represents a separate origin from life on Earth. This is a dinner meeting, with attendance requiring pre-payment.
