Electrical Stiffness Temperature Compensation for Micromechanical Resonators

This session will cover how polysilicon µmechanical resonators utilizing a novel temperature-dependent electrical stiffness design technique to compensate for temperature-induced frequency shifts have been demonstrated with greatly reduced temperature coefficients (TCf’s) on the order of −0.24 ppm/K, which is 67 times smaller than exhibited by previous uncompensated resonators. With this new resonator design, Ozgurluk will cover how the total frequency excursion over a 300K to 380K range has been reduced from 1,280 ppm for an uncompensated device to only 18 ppm, which for the first time, is now small enough to erase lingering concerns regarding the temperature stability of MEMS-based resonators for use in communication applications.

Fiber Optic Microswitch Enables New MRI and Industrial Applications

This presentation unveils the Micronor MR386, the world’s first fiber optic micro switch, purposely designed to meet the challenging requirements of MRI and industrial applications. The non-electrical, totally-passive optical sensor provides high voltage isolation, EMI and RFI immunity, and operates interference-free over long distances. Available in two models, Industrial and MRI Safe, the MR386 covers a wide variety of needs from magnetic invisibility to inherent safety, instrumentation to switchgear, and laboratories to mines.

SensorTile – Wireless Sensor Node Platform for the IoT

This session will focus on algorithms for building contextual awareness for battery operated wearable applications such as activity recognition, gesture recognition, pose estimation, through fusion of sensor data. It will show how to jump start on a rapid fast prototyping with the STM32ODE ecosystem and how to port it on a form factor miniaturized embedded platform with ble communication, motion, environmental sensors and microphones.

Wednesday, June 22nd 2:00 - 2:30 PM RFMicron Smart Passive Sensing Delivers Mechanical Plant Insights

Keeping a modern mechanical plant running efficiently and with best-in-class up-time performance requires rich data to create insights and to identify issues before they undermine your operations. This often requires a complex and costly sensor network that can take a year or more to implement. New Smart Passive Sensing™ technology measures temperature, moisture and humidity to close the data gap. These simple, battery-free, sensor devices are designed for out-of-the-box installation and can provide data as soon as they’re installed. Improve efficiencies and find issues before they become problems, and then extend your system into a full IoT installation over time.

Wednesday, June 22nd 3:30 - 4:00 PM Exosite A Modern Platform Approach for Creating Smart Connected Products A recent report by Forrester indicates that more than 4 in 5 manufacturers say IoT will be the most strategic and important technology initiative this decade. With the emergence of smart connected products, it is becoming more important to integrate the data from those products with enterprise IT. Because IoT is an emerging digital ecosystem, it requires an integrative platform approach that meets near-term needs, yet is flexible enough to meet the long-term demands of the future. This presentation examines leading trends in modern IoT platform design and recommendations for building a lasting connected product foundation. Mark Benson | Chief Technology Officer | Exosite
