IEEE distinguished lecturer Prof. Maria Sabrina Greco “Advanced Techniques of Radar Detection in Non-Gaussian Background”

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

On Wednesday, 16th September 2015 at 14:00, Tallinn University of Technology, room NRG-226
IEEE distinguished lecturer Prof. Maria Sabrina Greco from University of Pisa



After a brief introduction dedicated to modern statistical and spectral modeling and analysis of high-resolution sea and ground clutter, the lecture will focus on coherent radar detection in non-Gaussian background. Optimum and sub-optimum detectors are derived and their performance analysed against a non-Gaussian background. Different interpretations of the various detectors are provided that highlight the relationships and the differences among them. Moreover, some discussion is dedicated to how to make adaptive the detectors, by incorporating a proper estimate of the disturbance covariance matrix, in order to guarantee the CFAR behaviour of the detector. Results with simulated and real recorded data will be shown.

Lecture of Dr. R. V. Joshi “Climbing the VLSI Power Wall for nm Era”

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

In Thursday, Oct. 9 at 12:00 in U03-103 (Tallinn University of Technology) will a lecture from BEC2014 invited speaker R. V. Joshi: “Climbing the VLSI Power Wall for nm Era“.

Dr. R.V. Joshi (Bio) is also Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE CAS and EDS society.

Low Power, and energy efficiency are key themes which is pushing system, software and hardware design. In order to achieve low power system, circuit and technology co-design is essential. This talk focuses on related technology and important circuit techniques for nanoscale era.
Achieving low power and high performance simultaneously is always difficult. Technology has seen major shifts from bulk to SOI and then to non-planar devices such as FinFET/Trigates.
As the technology pushes towards sub-65nm era, process variability and geometric variation in devices can cause variation in power. The reliability also plays an important role in the power-performance envelope. This talk also reviews the methodology to capture such effects and describes all the power components. All the key areas of low power optimization such as reduction in active power, leakage power, and short circuit power are covered. Usage of clock gating, power gating, longer channel, multi-Vt design, stacking, header-footer device techniques, resonant clocking and other methods are described for logic and memory.

Finally the talk summarizes key challenges in achieving low power.
