Reports update meeting for year 2014.
In the Puerto Rico & Caribbean Section the NAIC/Arecibo Radiotelescope, from 1963, was recognized in Nov 2001. The Arecibo Observatory, the world’s largest radio telescope, was dedicated in 1963. Its design and implementation led to advances the areas of antenna design, signal processing, and electronic instrumentation, and in the mechanical engineering areas of antenna suspension and drive systems.

IBM and IEEE are in search of creative team based student projects that can help students at any level learn about applying engineering, science and other disciplines to solve real world problems. It’s a great opportunity to put your engineering skills to use…and earn cash prizes too!
The competition is open to college/university students from all geographic locations. Student teams should have three to five team members in any year of university study. At least one team member must be an IEEE member. To find out more about this exciting opportunity, visit: http://www.ieee.org/go/smarter_planet_challenge or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Date is 1 October 2014
The IEEE Global Early Career Faculty Development (ECFD) Virtual Mini-Conference is a new resource specifically designed to meet the professional needs of new faculty members. Offered as a series of three virtual mini-conferences, the second session “Effective Teaching” is scheduled for 18 September 2014 , 9 am EDT.
The sessions are devoted to providing early career faculty with information they can put into action immediately, that will enable them to become more effective educators. The mini-conference format makes use of a new virtual platform allowing attendees to participate from their home or office.
Become a more effective teacher
Effectively engage students
Develop lesson plans and learning objectives
Understand an implement “Active Learning”
Assess student progress
Define the course climate, including the syllabus policies and student expectations
Early Career Faculty
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:
Through the many sessions, featuring an array of recognized experts in the field, you will:
Acquire tips and guidance that you can put into action immediately
Learn success strategies for enhancing your career
Gain the knowledge you need to develop critical teaching competencies
Get answers to your career and professional development questions
Expand your global network of colleagues and professional contacts
WHERE: View it live from your home or office, or on-demand anytime at your convenience
“It just works.” You hear it all the time, as it has become synonymous with Apple products. As product designers from companies around the world integrate chips from Texas Instruments and other semiconductor vendors, they all strive for their customers to utter those same sacred words – “it just works.” I know I appreciate that the plane I flew to Puerto Rico and the braking system in the car that brought me to UPR “just worked.” Vehicles are integrating far more electronics than ever before, and the misbehavior of a chip can mean the difference in your screen annoyingly not dimming after the sun goes down, or your brakes not working when you need them most. In this talk I’ll examine the difference between quality, reliability, and “misbehaviors” in end applications. We’ll look at how misbehaviors can mean the difference in our chip being selected for a new product, or designed out in favor of the competition. I’ll address how production oriented test, built-in-self-test, electrical characterization, and system-level validation all play their role in guaranteeing a TI product works in applications ranging from cell phones to airplanes.
The design of integrated operational amplifiers (OA) for specific applications or for applications within a certain range of operational conditions depend heavily on system level requirements that are associated to the target application. Hence, although theoretically the usage of OA follow similar rules and system level design steps, the specifications of the OA at the transistor level design must comply with different ranges of response characteristics. These differences give rise to the classification of Operational amplifiers depending on the particular needs, such as low voltage low power OA’s, high‐speed OA’s, lownoise OA’s, etc. This seminar focuses on the design path that follows the designer in the process of Operational amplifier design to comply with the system level requirements. Practical examples from the presentator’s portfolio will serve to illustrate this process.
