[NACSA] Beyond Semiconductor: The New Trend Of Technology03/16/2013 - 03/16/2013

   Beyond Semiconductor:  The New Trend of Technology










Have you seen Google self-driving car?  Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technologies are providing the vision for a new generation of driverless vehicles. LiDAR, a concept similar to RADAR, uses laser light instead of radio waves.  LiDAR sensors are currently used in a variety of military and commercial autonomous vehicle applications, as well as 3-D mapping, surveying and other applications.  

LED technology has advanced to enable broad new applications and exciting opportunities in recent years. Projection LEDs have been engineered to deliver extremely high optical output and to begin replacing mercury discharge lamps with an environmentally friendly, solid-state light source.  Pico-projector design uses color LEDs.  As LEDs are getting brighter and smaller, pico-projectors can become more popular as stand-alone, used in car HUD and infotainment center console or embedded with other products like camcorders and mobile phones. In this seminar, you will get a good understanding of the architecture of a projector engine and the design rules of optimizing LED.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery has the promise of the future of power and portability.  Li-ion has the best energy density of commercial power tool batteries, a very slow self-discharge rate up to six times longer than a NiCad, and superior energy to weight ratio.  Li-ion technology is drawing huge interest and investment.  As the quest for small, powerful, long-last, fast-recharging batteries heightens, Li-ion will be in the spotlight. 

In 2013, we are one step closer to the greatest new revolution in technology mankind has ever experienced.  In this seminar, we have invited four industry veterans and distinguished speakers: Dr. Juchmann, product marketing manager of Velodyne LiDAR, co-presenters Dr. Andrew Lin, senior product marketing manager of OSRAM and Francis Nguyen, and Dr. Kang Sun, Chief Executive Officer of Amprius to share with us their extensive experience and visions in the trending technologies, like LiDAR, LED projection, and Li-ion battery.  We cordially invite aspiring professionals to join us at this very interesting technical seminar. Take the opportunity to learn more about the industry trend and its outlook, and mingle with other professionals and entrepreneurs.  Looking forward to seeing you at the seminar !
