January 1, 2010

Course: Failure and Yield Analysis

by @ 9:20 pm. Filed under ALL, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Optics/Displays, Semiconductors
 

– Four-day Course? ? – February 15-18, 2010
Regus Business Center, 2033 Gateway Place, S.J.

Today, engineers are required to locate defects on complex integrated circuits.? In many ways, this is akin to locating a needle in a haystack, where the needles get smaller and the haystack gets bigger every year.? Engineers are (more…)

Course: Semiconductor Reliability

– Three-day Course? ? – February 8-10, 2010
Regus Business Center, 2033 Gateway Place, S.J.

Semiconductor reliability is at a crossroads.? In the past, reliability meant discovering, characterizing, and modeling failure mechanisms and determining their impact on the reliability of the circuit.? Today, reliability can (more…)

Course: CDMA and EV-DO Technology

by @ 9:13 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications
 

– Full-day Course? ? – February 8-10, 2010
Regus Business Center, 2033 Gateway Place, S.J.

Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is an increasingly popular method for handling higher volumes of calls.? This spread-spectrum technique is resistant to inference and jamming, provides for more calls to be made on a single (more…)

– Full-day Course? ? – February 1, 2010
Regus Business Center, 71 Stevenson St, S.F.

Solar energy is again being seriously considered for widespread implementation.? Since the 1970s, a number of breakthroughs in photovoltaic technology have made electricity generation from light more feasible and (more…)

Course: Energy Efficient Thermal Management of Data Centers

by @ 9:07 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electrical/Power
 

Instructor: Yogendra Joshi, Ph.D., School of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
DATE: Monday, Feb. 22, 2010
PLACE: SEMI-THERM Symposium, Santa Clara Convention Center
ABSTRACT:? In 2006, data centers in the United States consumed about 61 billion kWh, or 1.5 % of total U.S. electricity consumption, for a total electricity cost of about $4.5 billion. This is equivalent to the amount of electricity consumed by approximately 5.8 million average U.S. households, and is about twice the electricity that was consumed for this purpose in 2000. As much as 20%-50% of the energy costs associated with the operation of a typical data center are ascribed to the cooling hardware. In this course, I will focus on energy efficient thermal management of data centers. Starting from the trends in energy consumption by cabinets and data centers I will discuss a number of metrics to quantify energy efficiency. I will then focus on approaches to improve energy efficiency of air-cooled data centers. Concepts of robust and sustainable design of data center facilities of the future will be addressed. Advanced thermal management approaches to handle the projected sharp increases in server heat loads will be discussed.

DATE: Monday, Feb. 22, 2010
PLACE: SEMI-THERM Symposium, Santa Clara Conv’n Ctr
ABSTRACT: If you are willing to bet $20 of your money against $1 of mine that your measurements are accurate within +/- XX% (you pick the XX%) then you understand the uncertainty of your experiment. If you are not (more…)

Course: Design of Air and Water Cooled Heat Exchangers for Electronics Cooling

by @ 9:00 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt
 

Design of Air and Water Cooled Heat Exchangers for Electronics Cooling: A Critical Review of Data and Analysis Methods for Heat Sinks and Cold Plates
Alfonso (Al) Ortega, Ph.D., Professor of Energy Technology, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research, College of Engineering, Villanova University
Date: Sunday, Feb. 21, 2010
AT: SEMI-THERM Symposium, Santa Clara Conv’n Ctr
ABSTRACT:
In the current era in which computational fluid dynamics is increasingly used as a primary simulation tool in thermal fluid design in electronic system, it is easy to forget that such tools generate design data but not design solutions. Over (more…)

Course: Cooling Challenges in 3D Packaging

by @ 8:58 pm. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors
 

Instructor: Dereje Agonafer, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Elec, MEMS & Nanoelectronics Systems Packaging Center, University of Texas at Arlington
Held at: SEMI-THERM Symposium, Santa Clara Conv’n Ctr
Date: Sunday, Feb. 21, 2010
ABSTRACT: The convergence of computing and communications dictates building up rather than out. As consumers demand more functions in their hand-held devices, the need for more memory in a limited space is (more…)

Mtg: Value-based Scheduling: Get your Organization’s Priorities Straight
