GSPx 2005 conference adds wireless tutorials

Aug 30, 2005 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

The 2005 Global Signal Processing Expo (GSPx 2005) will feature three new wireless tutorials covering WiMAX, WiFi, and ZigBee/UWB. The event, Oct. 24-27 in Santa Clara, Calif., also features 18 workshops, 200 whitepapers, vendor exhibits, a “new products” forum, and keynotes from Freescale and Qualcomm executives, organizers say.

Other workshop and tutorial topics include video compression, multi-core processors, and synthetic aperture radar imagery. The New Product Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 25, will showcase embedded hardware, software, and tools, organizers said.

The two-part WiMAX tutorial will be led by Naftali Chayat, chief scientist with Alvarion, and a contributor to the IEEE's 802.11 and 802.16 standards. Part 1 is entitled “WiMAX for the Fixed Wireless Access,” while Part II covers “Underlying Principles of Mobile Broadband Access Based on IEEE 802.16.”

The “UWB and ZigBee” tutorial will be led by Patrick Kinney, co-vice chair and secretary of the IEEE 802.15 working group for Wireless Personal Area Networks, and secretary of ZigBee Alliance. Kinney will review standards and technologies from the ZigBee Alliance and Ultra Wideband initiatives — including WiMedia, Wireless USB, and the UWB Forum.

Dr. Benny Bing of the Georgia Institute of Technology will deliver the “Advances in Wireless Local Area Networks” tutorial.

Keynote speakers will be Dr. Andrew J. Viterbi, co-founder of Qualcomm (“Broadband Wireless Opportunities and Challenges”); Freescale CTO Dave Mothersole (“Signal Processing Catches the Multicore Wave: Which Architecture is Right for your Application?”); and Dr. Rajiv Laroia, CTO of Qualcomm's OFDMA division (“Mobile OFDMA for Triple Play Services”).
