Topic: Making Smart Buildings Happen

Speaker:
Dr. AjithAmerasekera
Dr. AjithAmerasekera,
TI Fellow, Texas Instruments Incorporated

Abstract:
An immersive environment that adapts and anticipates our needs, enhances our health and well-being, optimizes our need and use of natural resources, and provides for our safety and security, would be a great goal. The resources required by buildings and the interaction between us and the buildings make them an important part of this environment. The demand for energy is going to play a critical role in the deployment of these systems, and the development of intelligent power delivery and management systems for ultra-low power electronics, motors, actuators, lighting, etc. will be an important key to making Smart Buildings happen.

About the Speaker:
Dr. AjithAmerasekera is a TI Fellow and IEEE Fellow. He was director of TI’s Kilby Labs, and now has responsibility for product development engineering in TI’s High Performance Analog business. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1986, he worked at Philips Research Labs, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, on the first submicron semiconductor development.

In 1991, he joined Texas Instruments, Dallas, working in the VLSI Design Labs on circuit and device modeling of high-current effects in devices and circuits. Since 1999, he has been working on circuit design and IP development for TI’s CMOS technologies. Before taking up the role at the Kilby Labs, Amerasekera was Chief Technical Officer for TI’s ASIC Business Unit and director of ASIC Technology Strategy.

He has 30 issued patents, and has published over 100 papers in technical journals and conferences, as well as 4 books on Integrated Circuits. Ajith has served on the technical program committees of a number of international conferences including the VLSI Symposium on Circuits, the ISSCC, and the IEDM.

Topic: 5G Wireless

Speaker:
Mr. Boyd Bangerter
Mr. Boyd Bangerter,
Director, Intel Corporation

Abstract:
As commercial deployments of 4G wireless systems reach maturity, the research community is actively looking at technology candidates for 5G wireless systems. This talk will address some of the key trends in radio access networks, core networks, devices, and services in the 5G era. It will also highlight some of the key technologies being considered as foundation technologies for 5G.

About the Speaker:
Mr. Boyd Bangerter directs the Wireless Communications Lab (WCL) within Intel Labs. Mr. Bangerter joined Intel in 1993 and has been with Intel Labs (formerly Intel’s Corporate Technology Group) for the past ten years. Prior to joining Intel Labs, Mr. Bangerter worked in a variety of program management and technical marketing management positions, where he focused on developing Intel’s broadband communications programs. Since joining Intel Labs, Mr. Bangerter has worked extensively on wireless programs, driving the establishment of Intel’s research and standards programs for next-generation WLAN and WWAN. Under his leadership, WCL is currently performing research to define air interfaces for emerging wireless networks and to improve application performance over wireless networks. Mr. Bangerter holds an MBA from Brigham Young University and received his BSEE with honors from the California Institute of Technology.
