Grand Challenges in Interfacing Engineering With Life Sciences and MedicineIEEE
This paper summarizes the discussions held during the First IEEE Life Sciences Grand Challenges Conference, held on October 4-5, 2012, at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC, and the grand challenges identified by the conference participants. Despite tremendous efforts to develop the knowledge and ability that are essential in addressing biomedical and health problems using engineering methodologies, the optimization of this approach toward engineering the life sciences and healthcare remains a grand challenge.
Fully integrated, high yielding, high reliability DC contact MEMS switch technology & control IC in standard plastic packagesIEEE
In this paper we present a fully integrated, high yielding, high reliability DC contact microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switch technology. A high voltage double-diffused metal-oxide-semiconductor (DMOS) driver application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is co-packaged with a single-pole-four-throw (SP4T) DC contact MEMS switch in a 5×4×1mm 24-pin quad flat no leads (QFN) plastic package.
The KumbhThon technical hackathon for Nashik: A model for STEM education and social entrepreneurshipIEEE
Local needs in urban settings create opportunities for STEM students and professionals to work together with city stakeholders to develop original innovative solutions. In preparation for the upcoming Kumbh Mela festival to be held in Nashik, India in 2015, a technical hackathon was convened with students and faculty, technology professionals and entrepreneurs as mentors and instructors.
