2016 Industry Outreach Program

Hello IEEE Buenaventura Members,

The IEEE Buenaventura Section has started an industrial outreach program. For those who work in Ventura County, help us help you and your company.

IEEE Buenaventura Section is home to dozens and dozens of technology firms, large and small. Our goal is simply to introduce those leaders to the IEEE: what IEEE does, how it helps drive innovation and business, and how to use the organization to their advantage.

We have begun to meet individually with technology leaders, developers, and service companies that have IEEE engineers here in Ventura County. The industrial outreach program is not a solicitation. It is about what value IEEE in Ventura County brings and about the value you are to your company by being a member of the IEEE.

As part of the program, invited technology leaders may attend a breakfast sponsored by IEEE. The breakfast is planned for October 2016. The hosted event will be an opportunity meet potential vendors and clients, and acts as a great mixer for them.

We need your help to contact key leaders at your companies.  We are arranging brief introductory meetings with us to invite them to participate. Let us know who your company leaders are and how best we can reach them. We’ll do the rest.

Please send your leaderships’ contact information (phone, email) directly to Bridge Carney at .  All contact information is strictly confidential and will not be shared.

Thank you advance,

The Things we Ought to Know About Digital Communications: Part 2 of 3
Modulation, Bandwidth, Power Spectrum and How Error Tolerance and Coding Schemes Make it All Work

Pizza and Networking:  6:30 PM
Presentation:  7:00 PM
Presenter:  Bernard Sklar
Meetings are free and open to the public.  Please register at


The emergence of digital communications has been a critical part of the information age, and as wireless telecommunications in particular adopts a number of strategic technologies for the 4G and 5G standards, we push up against fundamental limitations in bandwidth and spectral efficiency, peak throughput and  datarates, performance at cell edge and highly mobile environments, and challenges for low latency and overall energy efficiency. In order to understand these seemingly complex interdependent physical limitations of how we communicate, this series of 3 lectures attempts to start from the fundamentals and develop them through the advanced state-of-the-art of digital communications of today, all with an intuitive and clear explanation for the basis of why things work the way they do, and what we are doing to push the envelope in coming generations of digital comm. This first lecture will focus on laying the groundwork of why digital communications is preferred over its analog legacy, key concepts of signal-to-noise, bandwidth and dynamic range, the principles of Nyquist and Shannon that define capability within a given bandwidth, how communications depends on modulation waveshape selection, and the basis for bandwidth efficiency and time-bandwidth product targets.

Second in a three-part series of lectures

Tuesday, May 17: Part I : Fundamentals of Digital Communications, Modulation, and Capacity and Why Things Are the Way They Are
Tuesday, July 19: Part II: Modulation, Bandwidth, Power, Spectrum and How Error Tolerance and Coding Schemes Make it All Work
Tuesday, August 30: Part III: Multipath Limitations, Coherence, Fading and Enabling Techniques for MIMO, Diversity Gain, and Spectral Re-Use in the Future

Effective Project Management through Proactive Action Management

Pizza and Networking: 6:30 PM
Presentation: 7:00 PM
Presenters: Vahe Jabagchourian and Harry Jabagchourian
Free and open to the public. Please register at


Project management is a methodical approach to planning and guiding project processes from start to finish. According to the Project Management Institute, the processes are guided through five stages: initiation, planning, executing, controlling, and closing. Actions are the lowest common denominator in Project Management.  Effective, proactive, and collaborative management of project actions increases the likelihood of meeting project technical, cost, and schedule goals. Various types of actions (action item, issue, risk, opportunity, and lessons learned) will be defined along with the stages required for process maturity (CMMI). Integration of project management processes with action oriented processes and lessons learned will be addressed. A web-based collaborative tool will be demonstrated that enhances maturity of the processes and increases the likelihood of meeting project performance objectives (cost, schedule, technical).

About the Speakers

Vahe Jabagchourian is a Software Applications Developer. He holds a BS Computer Engineering from UC Irvine and an MS Computer Engineering from CSUN.  Post-graduation Vahe pursued further studies in software development leading to strong interest and orientation in developing web applications for business and project management.

3D-IC Global Shutter Image Sensors: HDR and More with High Quality Image Capture

Pizza and Networking: 6:30 PM
Presentation: 7:00 PM
Presenter: Les Kozlowski
Meetings are free and open to the public. Please register at


Mr. Les Kozlowski will discuss the imminent debut of stacked image sensor products delivering unprecedented image quality from newly developed global shutter fabrication and circuit technology. The high-quality, low-noise, global shutter image sensors are the answer to what comes next in the roadmap for commercial CMOS image sensors (CIS). While global shutter image sensors were a goal of even the earliest pioneers of MOS-based technology, such as Mr. Peter Noble and his seminal UK image sensor team in the late 1960s, high quality global shutter devices have simply been unavailable until just recently. Even the latest such devices have noise higher than competing rolling shutter devices along with inferior parasitic image suppression. The key is the use of advanced stacked sensor technology and unique circuit solutions together enabling competitive pixel sizes while eliminating reset noise and parasitic image formation. Furthermore, global shutter image capture greatly improves video quality with less complex (cheaper) image signal processors for emerging HDR cameras.

About the Speaker

Mr. Les Kozlowski is currently Founder, President and CEO of AltaSens, a company that introduced the world’s first high-performance CIS sensors to professional HDTV cameras in 2004 and ultimately became the largest supplier of CIS for HDTV videoconferencing systems. His current focus is on helping to lead AltaSens, which was acquired by JVC Kenwood in 2012, and its world class camera partners to proliferate the ultimate near-term CIS solution: low-noise, high-quality global shutter technology.  Les received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electronic Engineering with emphasis on Electromagnetic Engineering in 1975 and 1977. He has nearly forty US patents including five devoted to the stacked global shutter, along with over 150 publications in various journals and proceedings. He also co-authored a chapter on infrared sensor technology with the late, esteemed Dr. Walter Kosonocky for the last two editions of the Optics Handbook. Topics included infrared focal plane arrays manufactured at his prior employers, Rockwell Scientific and Hughes Aircraft, using earlier stacked sensor technologies.
