ASK THE EXPERTS PANELS

ASK THE EXPERTS PANELS

The Ask the Experts panels provide excellent opportunities to have your hard-to-answer questions answered by true, knowledgeable experts in their fields or to get answers to questions you did not even know you had. We all get stumped occasionally by challenges from beyond our realm of expertise of situations outside our comfort zones. Part of the beauty of the symposium is the bringing together the collective knowledge of hundreds of practicing professionals from a broad spectrum of academia and industry. What better way to tap that knowledge and energy than an informal question and answer session with a panel of invited experts?

The Ask the Experts panels will be held in a dedicated area of the exhibit hall to help create a drop-in-to-chat experience and to facilitate taking your new-found knowledge with you to vendors’ booths to continue the discussion with industry-leading exhibitors who provide tools and resources that could help turn your ideas into actions.

ALL ASK THE EXPERTS PANELS WILL BE HELD IN THE REAR OF THE EXHIBIT HALL

Tuesday, July 31

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Topic: AUTOMOTIVE HYBRID, ELECTRIC AND AUTONOMOUS – ADDRESSING THE COMPLEXITY OF MODERN VEHICLES
Panelists: Craig Fanning, Elite Electronic Engineering, Inc., Downers Grove, IL, USA Rob Kado, FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Auburn Hills, MI USA Jon Kinney, Keysight Technologies, Santa Rosa, CA, USA Bob Mitchell, Analog Devices, Wilmington, MA, USA Scott Piper, General Motors, Milford, MI, USA Carlo Carobbi, University of Florence, Florence, Italy Garth D’Abreu, ETS-Lindgren, Cedar Park, TX, USA
Abstract: Today’s complex vehicle platforms include propulsion, entertainment and safety related systems all having to function reliably without impacting safety or the legacy communications infrastructure.  The increased interest in autonomous vehicles is also driving the need for more sophisticated automotive EMC design and test scenarios, such as those addressing EMC, sensors (including radar) and wireless considerations. This impacts both component level and full-vehicle level emissions and immunity.
Our Automotive “Ask the Experts” panelists represent a diversity of automotive related organizations, including full vehicle manufacturers, an integrated circuit (IC) manufacturer, members of the ISO/ CISPR D Automotive EMC Committees, an automotive test chamber and instrumentation manufacturer, a commercial automotive EMC test lab, and a noted IEC specialist in measurement uncertainty related to automotive EMC standards. These experts will share their knowledge on current and future automotive EMC design and test considerations. Bring your questions or simply listen and learn.


1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Topic: EMC AND WIRELESS 5G/IoT
Panelists: Constantine Balanis, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA Jari Vikstedt, ETS-Lindgren, Cedar Park, TX, USA Harry Skinner, Intel, Hillsboro, OR, USA Ross Carlton, ETS-Lindgren, Cedar Park, TX, USA   Arien Sligar, ANSYS, Inc., Canonsburg, PA, USA
Abstract: Wireless technologies are increasingly utilized in various electronic, computer, and communication devices as well as in automotive applications, especially with the advent of autonomous vehicles.  EMC issues, at both the system and the intra-system levels, are increasingly important to address as we approach 5G New Radio (NR) and mmWave performance requirements.
Our panelists will address the simulation, test and measurement challenges presented by the rapid development of wireless technologies. Discussion will address reverberation chamber and anechoic chamber test environments for wireless devices, EMC test challenges and coexistence at the chip and system level, the evolution of smart antennas, novel instrumentation for wireless device testing, and simulation to simplify wireless device design and test. Bring your questions or simply listen and learn.


3:30 PM – 5:00 PM
Topic: SIGNAL/POWER INTEGRITY
Panelists: SI/PI Ask the Experts Panelists • Jun Fan, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO, USA; • Eric Bogatin, Teledyne LeCroy, Longmont, CO, USA; • Brice Achkir, Cisco Systems, Inc.,       San Jose, CA, USA; • Bidyut Sen, Cisco Systems, Inc.,         San Jose, CA, USA; • Xiaoning Ye, Intel Corporation, Hillsboro, OR, USA
Abstract: The Signal/Power Integrity Ask the Experts panel provides an excellent opportunity to have your hard-to-answer questions answered by true, knowledgeable experts in the field and to learn expert advice for resolving difficult challenges facing the SI/PI community. Part of the beauty of the symposium is the bringing together the collective knowledge of hundreds of practicing professionals from a broad spectrum of academia and industry. What better way to tap that knowledge and energy than an informal question and answer session with a panel of invited experts?

The Ask the Experts panels will be held in a dedicated area of the exhibit hall to help create a drop-in-to-chat experience and to facilitate taking your new-found knowledge with you to vendors’ booths to continue the discussion with industry-leading exhibitors who provide tools and resources that could help turn your ideas into actions.

 

Wednesday August 1 

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
