Antenna-in-Package (AiP) TechnologyYueping ZhangNanyang Technological University, SingaporeYueping Zhang (M’03-SM’07-F’10) is a full Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S), a Member of the IEEE AP-S Paper Award Committee, and a Fellow of IEEE.
Prof ZHANG has published numerous papers, including two invited and one regular papers in the Proceedings of the IEEE and one invited paper in the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. He received the Sergei A. Schelkunoff Prize Paper Award from the IEEE AP-S in 2012.
Prof Zhang holds 7 US patents. He has made pioneering and significant contributions to the development of AiP technology. He received the John Kraus Antenna Award from the IEEE AP-S in 2020.
His current research interests include the development of antenna-on-chip (AoC) technology for very large-scale antenna integration and characterization of chip-scale propagation channels at terahertz for wireless chip area network (WCAN).AiP technology integrates an antenna or antennas with a radio or radar transceiver die (or dies) into a standard surface mount package. AiP technology well balances performance, size, and cost. Hence, it has been widely adopted by chip makers for highly integrated radios and radars. It is the antenna and packaging technology for the ﬁfth generation (5G) cellular networks and beyond operating in the millimeter-wave (mmWave) bands. This talk will provide an overview of the development of AiP technology.
NTT’s IOWN Concept for enabling Smart WorldKatsushi ShindoNTT, JapanKatsushi Shindo is currently leading NTT's R&D of Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN) and the realization of businesses that utilize IOWN as a manager of the IOWN Development Office.
He is also the leader of the Reference Implementation Model Task Force, a joint Technical Working Group and Use Case Working Group of the IOWN Global Forum.
He has worked as a bridge between technology and business since he joined NTT.
His areas of expertise include video distribution, interactive video communication, IOT, and cloud/edge computing. Nowadays, he is exploring innovative ways to implement lower power, lower cost end-to-end systems using innovative technologies such as optical communications, disaggregated computing and AI.In the field of Cyber Physical System and Remote World, there will be a variety of attractive use cases in the Beyond 5G era.
NTT has proposed the “IOWN concept”, which aims to develop and provide the next-generation IT infrastructure based on optical technology. For enabling such use cases, we have to manage the "data volume explosion," "communication latency," and "power consumption.” In this presentation, I will explain the IOWN concept proposed by NTT and the technical efforts to realize it, and also introduce the IOWN Global Forum, in which diverse members are collaborating to develop the IOWN technologies and services.
Challenges and Opportunities of Dry-Contact EEG RecordingsPreben KidmoseAarhus University, DenmarkPreben Kidmose received the M.Sc. degree in engineering in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in signal processing in 2001 from Technical University of Denmark. From 2001 – 2011 he was employed in the medical device industry (Widex and UNEEG medical). Since 2011 he has been at Aarhus University, Denmark, where he holds a position as professor in electrical and biomedical engineering at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Areas of research include: signal processing and machine learning methods for electrophysiological signals (in particular electroencephalography), biomedical sensors and wearable biomedical devices; biomedical electrical instrumentation; biomedical sensors; and system engineering/design of medical devices. He is a pioneer and leading researcher of ear-EEG and has (co-)authored more than 25 scientific papers related to the ear-EEG method.Non-invasive recording of electrical signals from the brain (EEG) has a huge potential in wearable devices and is envisioned to open a wide field of new opportunities within consumer electronics and medical devices, where dry-contact electrodes is an attractive technology. This presentation overviews the state-of-the-art within wearable EEG recording devices, and discuss the technology challenges from an electrical instrumentation perspective, and exemplify with experiences from dry-contact ear-EEG research.
