PSEC Events

The Council sponsors or operates several events throughout the year. We invite you to participate. Please have a look at our calendar below to see upcoming events.

  • Mentor Nights – We hold several of these events throughout the year at local colleges. It is an opportunity for students to interact with the local engineering community to learn about the breadth of engineering disciplines that are practiced here.
  • Engineering Banquet – Held every year in February during Engineers Week. This is the event where the PSEC presents the Engineering Awards.
  • Engineering Fair – Held every year in February at the Museum of Flight. This is a chance for youngsters to come out and see what engineering is all about and show off their engineering projects.
  • Officers Workshop – Another annual event where the many member societies of the PSEC discuss what we are doing and how we can work together.

The calendar below lists events sponsored by the PSEC and includes the live calendars of several of our member societies.

If you are a PSEC member society and would like to see your events calendar added, please contact the site administrator at webmaster@pseconline.org

    Date: September 18, 2019 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM


    Description:

    Presentation 1:  Automated Design Rule Check for EMC Design
    By Federico Centola, Lead EMC Designer, Google, Mountain View, California
    The EMC design of PCBs often requires board reviews and inspections to insure that EMC guidelines are followed and that there are no major EMC design violations. This presentation discusses the utility of Automated Design Rule Checking (DRC) tools for EMC, possible ways of automating the process and the importance of having customized rules and design parameters.
     
    Presentation 2: Utilizing Reverberation Chambers as a Versatile Test Environment for Assessing the Performance of Components and Systems
    By Dennis Lewis, Technical Fellow, Boeing, Seattle, Washington
    Electromagnetic reverberation chambers have been used for many years by the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) community to measure the susceptibility and emissions for various electronic components and systems. This presentation describes how statistical processes were used to reduce the uncertainty of these chambers to a level necessary for precision metrology applications.

    Description:

    Built by the Army Corps of Engineers between 1933 and 1942, Grand Coulee Dam was the largest concrete structure in the world for decades. With the expansion of the third power station in 1974 made it the largest power plant in the world at the time. It still remains the largest power plant in the USA with a capacity of over 6 GW in three power stations. It also has a large pumped storage facility of several hundred MW that links to the Columbia Basin Irrigation Project. As the center-piece of the Columbia Basin Project, the dam’s reservoir supplies water for the irrigation of 671,000 acres.

  • IEEE - MM-wave propagation channels and their impact on 5G system design 

    Date: October 16, 2019 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


    Description:

    Co-sponsored by: CN60049
    Title: MM-wave propagation channels and their impact on 5G system design
     
    Abstract: Communication in the mm-wave band is an essential part of 5G, allowing to reach the ambitious data rate and throughput goals of IMT-2020. In order to design systems that will work in practice, a thorough understanding – which must be based on measurements in real-world channels – of mm-wave propagation channels is required. This talk provides an overview of such research. After a brief introduction of suitable channel sounders, the talk will concentrate on (i) requirement for street-by-street pathloss models, (ii) dynamics of angular statistics (iii) outdoor-to-indoor propagation in mm-wave bands, and (iv) spatial consistency and the change of second-order channel statistics. The impact of all those channel effects on system design and deployment planning will be elaborated.
     
     
    Bio: 
    Andreas F. Molisch is the Solomon Golomb – Andrew and Erna Viterbi Chair Professor at the University of Southern California. His research interest is wireless communications, with emphasis on wireless propagation channels, multi-antenna systems, ultrawideband signaling and localization, novel modulation methods, and caching for wireless content distribution. He is the author of four books, 20 book chapters, more than 250 journal papers, 340 conference papers, as well as 80 patents. He is a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, IEEE, AAAS, and IET, as well as Member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and recipient of numerous awards, including the Sumner award of the IEEE and the Armstrong award of ComSoc.
