The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the IEEE Power Electronics Society (IEEE SFBAC-PELS) is interested in the development of power electronics technology. This technology encompasses the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools toward efficient electronic conversion, control, and conditioning of electric power.

About the talk:
With wide-scale IoT solutions being implemented, we are seeing an emerging set of new wireless technologies being developed. The focus of much IoT innovation is on low power protocols that support remote battery-operated devices which send small amounts of data for a duration from months to years. This talk will provide an overview of new and existing wireless options available on the market today and describes the advantages and disadvantages of each. The trade-offs between range, data throughput, battery life, latency, cost, and availability will be discussed.

About the Speaker:
Walt is founder of Voler Systems, one of the top electronic design firms in Silicon Valley. He has been active in several consulting organizations. He is a reviewer for NSF SBIR grants. He has advised dozens of startup companies on technical and funding issues. Mr. Maclay holds a BSEE degree in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University.

We look forward to having you join us.

Congratulations to the SFBAC-PELS Chapter!
