CC-Day 18

CC-Day 18 | November 2018 | Technopark Zürich

• Lectures on current topics in the field of electronics development and design validation

• Bavarian food and racing atmosphere at the workplace of the AMZ racing teams

Three lectures on exciting topics held by industry experts. (Abstracts below of the registration form.) Active and direct exchange in small groups. Afterwards, take a look behind the scenes of the multiple world champion of the biggest junior racing series: the Formula Student. As a technology partner and sponsor of the AMZ, we cordially invite you to join us: Weisswurst, pretzels and freshly tapped beer in the workshop of the AMZ team.

Abstracts

Track 1: Take control of the costs for EMI certification | Presented by Computer Controls (German Language, English Slides)
Duration: Starts at 16:00 and ends at 17:15 (Welcome coffee and registration starts at 15:30.)
Abstract: Obtaining an EMI certification is a costly process in terms of money but also in terms of time and resources. In this session, we will show you how inexpensive in-house EMI pre-compliance measurements along your product development cycle reduces your visits at certified but costly EMI test facilities. The shared insights will enable project leaders to plan and control expenses for EMI certification while development engineers will comprehend the differences between EMI compliance and pre-compliance measurements.
Enroll in this session and learn how to take control of your expenses for EMI certification and speed up the time to market for your next electronic products. 

Track 2: Efficient scaling of Machine Learning to embedded systems | Presented by ARM/KEIL (EnglishLanguage, English Slides)
Duration: Starts at 16:00 and ends at 17:15 (Welcome coffee and registration starts at 15:30.)
Abstract: Machine learning (ML) technology is being increasingly adopted across the embedded sector in applications ranging from consumer to industrial IoT. This presentation by Arm explores the challenges and opportunities involved in deploying ML workloads to size- and energy-constrained systems. With billions of end node devices collecting and transmitting data to the cloud, minimizing latency and data volume has become a key product requirement for many market applications. We will look at how Arm processor-based devices address this growing need by enabling more data processing to happen at the edge. In the process we will also introduce Arm’s open source ML software framework and development tools to help software engineers use heterogenous compute resources efficiently, whilst also getting products to market faster.

Track 3: 5G NR Field measurements & NB-IoT and LTE-M field measurements | Presented by Keysight Technologies (NEMO) (English Language, English Slides)
Duration: Starts at 16:00 and ends at 17:15 (Welcome coffee and registration starts at 15:30.)
Abstract: Part I: Massive MIMO and Beamforming are one of the main changes that 5G New Radio (NR) introduces compared to the existing LTE air interface, heavily impacting field testing, assessment of QoE and radio network performance. To ensure functionality quality, coverage and time-to-revenue of first 5G networks, an operator needs to understand; how to verify massive MIMO performance with field testing, what are the metrics and methodology for measuring 5G radio network coverage and quality. We will explain the evolution of 5G field measurements, going from mmWave link budget assessment and propagation model tuning to true QoE analysis. We will further highlight differences between scanner and device based field measurements and results they yield.
Part II: The availability of LTE network coverage in a customer location is not a true indication of a fully operational NB-IoT or LTE-M service. IoT devices are typically installed in remote locations such as basements and garages where the network signals are weak. Failure events and transmission repetitions often occur in poor conditions, quickly consuming the battery and even failing to connect. By performing active field measurements with Nemo Outdoor, Nemo Handy IoT or Nemo IoT Meter, companies using IoT modules or companies selling, installing or integrating IoT modules can now validate IoT technology functionality and further ensure that networks meet set requirements – making possible that reliable IoT services are offered to end customers for their IoT applications.
