19/11/2013 – Get certification ready with Wind River Simics

Simulation is used by most engineering disciplines in today’s world. Simulation allows engineers to test designs faster, cheaper, and more reliably than using the physical world alone. In the software disciplines simulating the functional behavior of target hardware, allows engineering, integration, and test teams to work simultaneously, reducing the development time and improving the quality of safety-critical systems.


19/11/2013 – Human Factors and their Impact on Plant Safety

History is full of technology breakthroughs, all striving to increase productivity and efficiency, from the steam engine and the telegraph; we’ve seen technology changing the way we get things done, sometimes in a disruptive way.

Most recently mission critical computing systems have been introduced in manufacturing processes and automated tasks, resulting in increased safety and productivity during normal operation, but can these technologies help keep the plant safe during abnormal process conditions? That’s where technology can support but not replace humans. The industry relies on human ability to respond to the unexpected, to handle the odd conditions and ask the right questions to fix the problems at hand.

Today, when operators are loaded with numerous activities, is it reasonable to expect they’ll be able to respond appropriately to all conditions? What are the human elements that should be taken in to consideration in the design and implementation of modern automation systems? This presentation discusses some of the capabilities available in a modern automation system and how to apply technology to support decision making and help humans handle the abnormal situations in a safe and effective manner.

Questions this presentation answers:

  1. Why do we need humans in Industrial facilities?
  2. What are the advantages in Industrial Automation that can improve the effectiveness of operators?
  3. What are the advantages in Industrial Automation that can improve the safety of plant operations?
  4. What are the human factors we are concerned with in Industrial facilities?

20/11/2013 – How to Enable I2C-bus Communications in Electrically Noisy Environments

NXP Semiconductors has a wide portfolio of I2C-bus buffer devices that enable the bus to be driven over a long distance, run with large capacitive loads, interface with different supply voltage domains, and accommodate hot-swap functions. However, several system designers still face challenges with using I2C-bus in electrically noisy environments such as applications with pumps, fluorescent lights, switching power supplies, solenoids, etc. Another challenging application is one with ground offset between two or more nodes separated by long distance. During this webinar, we will discuss the need for driving the I2C bus over a long distance, challenges encountered in a noisy environment, and proposed solutions for maintaining data integrity in these challenging situations.



20/11/2013 – Automate Multilane Gigabit Oscilloscope Testing with Switch Matrix

Many high-speed digital interfaces are adopting multilane high-speed signals to achieve the required data throughput. They include the PCI Express interface which supports up to 16 lanes operating at 8 GT/s used in graphics processing applications, the HDMI 2.0 interface with 3x lanes at 6 Gb/s for high resolution displays and the MIPI M-PHY interface that scales up to 4 lanes at 5.8304 Gb/s for mobile applications. Validating a multilane interface increases the effort and complexity using an oscilloscope as engineers must manually connect the signals under test into the limited input channels of an oscilloscope. In addition, there are various test conditions – design operating modes, voltage, temperature, etc. that they must test, requiring user intervention to get testing started.

One way to overcome these challenges is to use a microwave switching network that provides automated switching of the signals under test to the oscilloscope. This eliminates reconnection and operator errors, and improves test efficiency, since connecting up all signals will be a one-time effort. A new calibration technique in the oscilloscope can be used to compensate for switch path losses and skew. Test software customization and control are available to cycle through various test conditions to automate device and equipment operation. This webcast will address accurate testing of common multilane interfaces such as PCI Express, HDMI, DisplayPort, MIPI D-PHY, M-PHY and 10GBase-KR using a high-speed oscilloscope.

20/11/2013 – Super Materials – GaN and SiC

GaN is a binary III/V direct bandgap semiconductor with a Wurtzite crystal structure and a wide bandgap of 3.4 eV. It resists cracking and because of its low sensitivity to ionizing radiation, it makes an ideal material for satellite solar-cell arrays.

SiC – which occurs in nature as moissanite – is used in everything from LEDs to car brakes and ceramic plates in bulletproof vests. Silicon carbide is called the “ideal” power semiconductor material for its enabling properties of higher speeds, better thermal characteristics, higher frequency switching with lower losses, and blocking voltages/currents not practical for silicon.

In 10 years, rated voltages for SiC devices (diodes) have increased to the present 1200V /1700V. SiC MOSFETs, introduced two years ago, have achieved 1200V / 1700V ratings, with >50A current per die. SiC power modules are also now available.

In response to the demand for “green” designs, power semiconductor devices based on silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are emerging that can operate far more efficiently than semiconductors made of traditional silicon. Because the underlying technologies are less mature than silicon, characterization is particularly important. Device development and end applications are becoming more demanding, requiring test instruments capable of characterizing significantly higher rated voltages and peak currents.
