LED modelling for Industry 4.0 in the Delphi4LED project
The Industry 4.0 initiative targets the digitization of design and manufacturing processes. The aim of the Delphi4LED H2020 ECSEL R&D project of the EU (www.delphi4LED.org) is to trigger this transition in the solid-state lighting industry by developing testing and modelling methodologies aimed at multi-domain characterization of LED based products. In this paper the concept and our approaches will be presented in modelling to create the appropriate “digital twins” of LED packages, modules and luminaries to be used in virtual prototypes applied in different system level design tasks.

Amplification, Feedback, and Sub-Biasing: Applying Analog Techniques to High-Speed, Low-Power Digital CMOS Circuits at Dimensions Below 100nm
Analog and digital circuit design architectures are usually regarded as separate spheres – with very different objectives, and consequently with different methods of approaching the design challenges.
Some twenty-five years ago, several remarkable United States patents were issued to the late Albert Vinal; these patents were developed and issued at a time when it had not even become clear yet that CMOS was actually viable as (among other things) a high-speed digital circuit technology. What makes these patents remarkable is not only that they reflect a clear understanding that CMOS was indeed on the verge of being a high-speed technology - they also employ a number of analog-looking techniques (such as serial-amplification and feedback) as the bases for their architectures.
This presentation will revisit four of the aforementioned patents, particularly with regard to the CMOS technology of the period. The behavior of these architectures will then be evaluated in the context of the evolution of CMOS technology into the present day – with respect to lower power supply voltages, low-power operation, and circuit operation in the moderate and weak inversion regimes. This presentation will extend the 2016 Baltic Electronics Conference presentation – to CMOS processes with feature sizes smaller than 100nm.

Systemic multimodal technologies for entering in the NDT 4.0 transition :
signal, image, and data for monitoring the health of biological, medical and industrial complex processes
In this keynote, an overview of the ninety years of nondestructive testing (NDT) progresses will be presented in connection with the progress also done in the domain of ultrasonic medical imaging developing multimodalities. The importance of signal, image, data will be presented as a basic ingredient for entering in the transition of Industry 4.0 for NDT. As an evidence, all aspects within Industry 4.0 are needed for the inspection of materials from row to machined, inspected, and classified until delivering to the customer and during its operational time. Like biological systems, the material might be equipped with sensors from the beginning of its life, which keep its structural integrity though all information about its aging and choosing the optimized way for its expected long life. The concept of NDT 4.0 will be discussed within the scope of future smart technologies and services.
