SystemX BONUS LECTURE: Run-time computation for enhanced integrated circuits and systems

Topic: 
Run-time computation for enhanced integrated circuits and systems
Abstract / Description: 

For over half a century, Integrated Circuits have been designed and developed (rather successfully) toward the goal of enhancing computing performance and efficiency. During this time, the relationship between circuit design and computing has remained largely one-directional: Careful, detailed circuit design is performed in the service of building computing systems. Notwithstanding a post-Moore and post-Dennard reality, the impressive strides made by digital computing thus far prompt an important question which re-examines the traditional circuit-computing relationship: Can runtime computing itself be used to enhance circuit and system capabilities? If so, under which conditions and to what extent?

In this talk, I will present recent efforts in my group that represent two different ways that computing can augment circuit capabilities to (1) overcome limitations inherent in circuit design; and (2) enable rapid, time-optimal control of integrated control systems. The effectiveness and limitations of both efforts are examined through a representative test-chip design. These efforts have yielded a robust True-Random Number Generators (TRNGs) demonstrating the lowest measured energy-per-bit (2.58pJ/bit), and an all-digital PLLs (ADPLLs) for system clocking applications with the fastest demonstrated cold-start and re-lock times (16 Refclk cycles, mean).

SystemX presents Life in Space

Topic: 
Life in Space: Microfluidic Systems Enable the Study of Terrestrial Microbes in Space and the Search for Life on the Solar System’s Icy Moons
Abstract / Description: 

We develop miniaturized integrated bio/analytical instruments and platforms to conduct economical, frequent, autonomous life-science experiments in outer space. The technologies represented by several of our recent 5-kg "free-flyer" small-satellite missions are the basis of a rapidly growing suite of miniaturized biologically- and chemically-oriented instrumentation now enabling a new generation of in-situ space science experiments. Over the past decade, our missions have included studies of space-environment-related changes in gene expression, drug dose response, microbial longevity and metabolism, and the degradation of biomarker molecules. The science and technology of one of these missions, the O/OREOS (Organism/Organic Response to Orbital Stress) Nanosatellite, will be highlighted in the context of conducting biological and chemical experiments in outer space using miniaturized integrated systems.

We have recently begun to adapt and apply our spaceflight-compatible microfluidic and bioanalytical technologies to the challenge of finding molecular and structural indications of microbial life on the so-called icy worlds of our solar system, particularly the moons Europa and Enceladus. The design, development, and laboratory testing of the Sample Processor for Life on Icy Worlds (SPLIce) system, a microfluidic sample-processing "front end" to enable autonomous detection of signatures of life and measurements of habitability parameters on icy worlds, will be described. SPLIce is under development to support two nominal mission scenarios: a fly-through of Enceladus' icy plumes, expected to yield ~ 2 µL of ice particles/square meter of collector area, and a Europan lander, the rasp-based sampling system of which is anticipated to deliver 1 – 5 mL of icy solids for analysis.
