    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Patrick Kane, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation

    Talk Title: Low Cost Platforms for EE Education

    Abstract: By 2020 there will be 50 Billion devices connected to the internet (MIT, 2017). More and more institutions are implementing IoT courses as part of their curriculum (Class Central, 2017; MIT, 2017; UC San Diego, 2017).

    The lecture will introduce attendees to available development kits suitable for IoT as well as an overview of the Cypress University Alliance program and demonstrations of Cypress kits that can be used in the lab section of a variety of courses including (but not limited to): Fundamentals of Digital Logic, Op Amp filters, robotics, mechatronics, embedded systems and IoT.

    Biography: Patrick Kane is the director of the Cypress University Alliance Program (CUA) at Cypress Semiconductor Corporation. The Cypress University Alliance Program is dedicated to partnering with academia to ensure that professors and students have access to the latest Cypress PSoC technology for use in education and research. Mr. Kane joined Cypress to begin a university program at Cypress in July 2006. Before joining Cypress, Mr. Kane spent over 13 years at Xilinx in a variety of technical and marketing roles including Applications Engineering, Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Technical Training, and managed the Xilinx University Program (XUP) from 1998 through 2002. Prior to Xilinx, Mr. Kane spent a number of years at both Advanced Micro Devices and Lattice Semiconductor Inc. He holds ASEET, BSEE, and MBA degrees and has authored numerous articles and conference papers. Mr. Kane is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational technology.

    Talk Title: How Cochlear Biomechanics Tunes Mammalian Hearing

    Abstract: The exquisite sensitivity and frequency discrimination of mammalian hearing derive from forces generated by outer hair cells (OHCs) within the auditory portion of the inner ear, the cochlea. These forces amplify the sound-induced vibrations within the tissues of the cochlea to enhance quiet sounds and sharpen frequency tuning. Our group has pioneered the technique of using optical coherence tomography to measure sound-induced vibrations within the mammalian cochlea without opening the bone that surrounds it, thus minimizing artifacts. Furthermore, we study transgenic mice with targeted mutations that affect different biomechanical aspects of the cochlea to localize the underlying processes necessary for normal hearing. The goal of this work is to understand the fundamental biomechanical changes that underlie progressive hearing loss and to develop treatments to overcome them.
