Title: "IoT at the Edge: Computing in Extreme Temperatures"
Some of the biggest environmental challenges for computing today involve being able to operate silicon devices at temperatures above 125˚ C. Operation gets even trickier when the surrounding environment can include a temperature range as wide as -190˚ C to +800˚ C. The solution to these issues has been a combination of advanced semiconductors (including Silicon Carbide), sophisticated ceramic-based packaging, and innovative manufacturing.
In this talk, Dr. Matt Francis will describe how the need for data acquisition and control in these demanding environments led to creation of the eXtreme Node (XNode™) single board computer (SBC), which is built around the RISC-V open source ecosystem and able to support Internet of Things (IoT) functionality. He founded Ozark IC to work on advanced projects for demanding environments, and he will discuss applications including down-hole geothermal energy exploration, turbine engine controls, and operation in space (including, to date, a year on the International Space Station). His challenges have been not only design, but test and validation for these extreme temperatures. He is currently working on a project that will send the XNode to the surface of Venus where it will need to operate at up to 500˚ C.
Dr. Matt Francis is an expert in the design, modeling, and packaging of electronics for extreme environments. He is CEO and Founder of Ozark Integrated Circuits, Inc., in Fayetteville, Arkansas. ...
