Title: Evolving Commercial Instrumentation to Meet Needs of Scientific Research
Abstract: The scale and complexity of research is growing at enormous rates requiring the instrumentation capabilities and associated technologies to keep up with the evolving demands. Additionally, the current economic climate puts even more focus on keeping projects under budget and on time. This makes leveraging the latest commercially available technology even more crucial for researchers that require testing and prototyping systems. Leveraging commercially available technology with software that abstracts complexity enables domain experts to take advantage of the latest innovations and R&D investment in FPGAs as well as multicore processors without being an expert. Software development environments and tools providing a single development flow can expedite time to prototype and test facilitating heterogeneous multiprocessing through abstraction and enabling code reuse spanning design and test. Dr. Truchard will discuss new designs that have the capability to cope with the constraints of operability, scalability, flexibility and maintainability while minimizing cost, power consumption and space requirements.

Title: Energy Efficiency: the 21st Century “Energy Source”
Abstract: Reducing the use of energy is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Semiconductors make a key contribution to the reduction of power losses in the generation, transmission and use of electricity. At the same time, increasing power density and growing efficiency open the doors to ever new applications – whether in automotive engineering, production machinery or all sorts of electric and electronic devices. Semiconductors are fueling a new technical, efficiency-driven revolution. We are witnessing the evolution of the Internet of Things, the smart networking and interaction of systems. It is a challenge but also a huge opportunity for the semiconductor industry to promote the advancement of the Internet of Things by adding expertise to the fields of energy efficiency and security.
