April 19 – DAY 5: Energy Conversion and Management Silicon
Continuing Education Center 
4/19/2013  180 comments
This discussion presents various commercial devices and circuit topologies used for energy conversion and storage. We will review various silicon integrated circuit components and present some interesting commercial energy harvesting kits that students may wish to explore
April 18 – DAY 4: Energy Storage Devices
Continuing Education Center 
4/18/2013  248 comments
This discussion will focus on energy storage devices with emphasis on batteries, battery applications, and battery technologies. Super capacitor and large capacitor energy storage devices will be included in the lesson.
April 17 – DAY 3: Energy Generation Discussion 2
Continuing Education Center 
4/17/2013  239 comments
This discussion will continue our talk about energy generation devices as applied to piezoelectric, thermal, and chemical energy harvesting devices. The instructor will present various devices and review their energy production methods.
April 16 – DAY 2: Energy Generation Discussion 1
Continuing Education Center 
4/16/2013  253 comments
This discussion will review concepts of energy generation as applied to photoelectric, magnetic inductive, and radiated energy harvesting devices. The instructor will present various devices and review their energy production methods.
April 15 – DAY 1: Energy Review
Continuing Education Center 
4/15/2013  312 comments
This discussion presents a short review of energy – how it's measured and applied in low-power electronic devices. We'll discuss the promise of "free" and "inexhaustible" energy, battery-life extension, and introduce various energy generation technologies.
Apr 05 - Day 5: Universal Verification Methodology (UVM)
Continuing Education Center 
4/5/2013  241 comments
Because of the complexity of creating verification environment and the common elements that many of them require, a class library has been created to help jump-start a verification project. This provides a high-level overview of its structure and capabilities.
Apr 04 - Day 4: SystemVerilog
Continuing Education Center 
4/4/2013  221 comments
SystemVerilog is becoming a very common language for functional verification. In this segment I will provide a high-level overview of the language and its capabilities.
Apr 03 - Day 3: Verification Methodologies
Continuing Education Center 
4/3/2013  273 comments
There is no single right way to perform verification. It is often described as an art rather than a science. In this section we will examine the most commonly used methodologies and the ways in which progress can be measured.
Apr 02 - Day 2: Models & Model Execution
Continuing Education Center 
4/2/2013  286 comments
Verification is performed on models of the intended design, but those models can be at many different levels of abstraction and use different software or hardware to execute them. We will look at the major ones in use today and where they are best utilized in a design flow.
Apr 01 - Day 1: Fundamental Concepts
Continuing Education Center 
4/1/2013  311 comments
The functional verification of electronic systems consumes in excess of 50 percent of the time and resources for most complex chip designs, which certainly leaks into system design. On the first day, we'll define the scope for the course and examine many of the fundamental concepts, terms, and methodologies that will be expanded upon later. Whether you are designing an IC or a system, these concepts will come in handy.

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
