Game Controller on your Fingertip: How Battery Performance Influences the Design & Construction of a Miniaturized Wireless Motion Sensor
Miniaturized sensors allow for data collection in a wealth of new use cases. Challenges arise in terms of power budgeting, design and assembly of miniaturized devices. In this talk we present a case study in designing a fingertip game controller based on a Bluetooth-enabled IMU. We present a power analysis of the sensor in different operation modes, the relationship between power requirements and battery characteristics, and the assembly of such a small form-factor device.

Magneto Resistive Sensors for Non-Contact Measurements in Severe Environments
Non-contact runout, displacement, speed sensing, and event detection in caustic, abrasive, and high-pressure environments is difficult. Material requirements, integration constraints, and performance requirements often collide with sensor technology specific capabilities. For example, non-homogeneous fluids interfere with capacitive measurements while side loading and skin depth limit the pressure capability and measuring range of inductive systems. Magneto resistive sensors offer a solution to help bridge the gap between robustness, reliability, and precision under these harsh conditions.

Chip-Scale Inference - The Next Frontier in Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is a catch-phrase for a now dizzying array of technologies and methods that have provided benefits that range from more efficient business operations to safer vehicles to walking bipedal robots. We will be discussing the next frontier in artificial intelligence that enables “inference” (extraction of meaning) without the burden of large power-hungry computing resources or access to the cloud. The enabling technology is clever architecture of special-purpose low-power microcontrollers designed for real-time execution of matrix operations required for neural network processing.

Simplifying Power Supply Selection for the Next Generation of Medical Optical Sensors
Human vital monitoring has moved from the doctor’s clinic to people's wardrobes. With more vital monitoring wearable devices entering the market with each day, it is incumbent of the sensor system designers to come up with the right combination of the power management and sensor solution which can guarantee low power consumption and form factor without compromising on the fidelity of the sensor measurements.   Specifically when it comes to pulse oximetry, understanding the correlation between the typical power requirements of the LED transmitters and the SNR characteristics of the optical sensor module is essential to get the system design accurate.

Strategies for Power-Efficient Machine Learning at the Edge
The push for greater intelligence has paved the way for machine learning at the edge of portable, battery-powered devices. While enabling greater privacy and performance, such devices are power-inefficient because they’re designed to digitize a vast amount of (mostly irrelevant) sensor data. To extend battery life, designers can choose more power-efficient components, use analog for computation in digital chips, or select an analogML chip to classify data at the start of the signal chain.

Infrared Device Helps Monitor COVID-19 Patients’ Breathing Therapy
In the talk we elaborate on the development of our latest product, InSee, an auxiliary device that can be attached to an incentive spirometer. Incentive spirometers are medical devices that are used to help patients improve the functioning of their lungs by measuring the patients’ air volume as they inhale and exhale into the device. InSee can remind patients to use the spirometer, monitor how often they use it, and record how well they perform. We discuss the challenges, involving our first prototype, testing, and FDA approval process during the pandemic. We conclude the talk by lessons learned and our next steps as we move forward.
