The IEEE Central Texas Consultants Network is an affinity group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) Region 5 Central Texas Section.


The Consultants Network promotes the development of members' careers through professional and social networking, including publicizing members' skills and sharing potential professional opportunities, and supports the IEEE Central Texas Section.

Meetings - General Information

The Consultants Network meets monthly. Except when meeting jointly with other groups, the Consultants Network meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Meetings usually begin with informal networking from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m., followed by presentations from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. by experts in technology, marketing, sales, advertising, financial or legal needs of small businesses and special needs of consultants.

Embedded Non-Volatile Memories for Intelligent IoT

October 2017

Topic:   Embedded Non-Volatile Memories for Intelligent IoT

Betty will repeat her Keynote Presentation given at the Leading Edge Embedded NVM Workshop, held in Gardanne, France, in September.  An Intelligent Internet of Things (IIoT) will require diverse embedded non-volatile memories (eNVM).  eNVM is used in: wearable medical networks, car networks, smart home and building networks, traffic control networks and public utility networks. These, together with other networks, will form eventually smart interconnected cities using millions of processors with eNVM.  Varieties of eNVM will be needed to satisfy the diverse requirements of these networks ranging from single poly EEPROMs to large 3D RRAM neuromorphic processors. eRRAM, eMRAM, eCBRAM, ePCM and eFeRAM with differing properties will also be needed.
