Solid-State Storage Technologies and Industry Analysis
Jianjun Luo received his Ph.D. from Zhejiang University in 1997, Master’s Degree from Hangzhou Dianzi University in 1993, and Bachelor’s degree from the E.E Dept of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1991. He is currently the Director of Microelectronics Research Institute, Hangzhou Dianzi University, as well as the Founder & Chairman of Sage Microelectronics Corporation. He has focused on System-On-Chip design for 30 years. His achievements include the SDH/SONET chip-set for optical fiber communication systems, computer interface bridge controllers, flash memory card controllers & solid-state drive (SSD) controllers, disk array controllers, data security chips, etc. He has rich experience in Silicon Valley as the founder/co-founder of multiple IC design houses. He has published more than 30 academic papers and owns some 40 patents in the USA & China. He has presided over more than 10 national projects and was awarded the Second Prize for National Science and Technology Progress in 2020.
Solid-state storage technology with semiconductor memories was applied so successfully that film and magnetic disks have been phased out in the last several years. Traditional hard drives with magnetic media have been replaced by solid-state drives (SSDs). Today, data explosion brings more new technologies such as NVME and NVDIMM. The lecture will review the history of data storage devices, describe the key technologies of storage media and controllers, and the challenges, including semiconductor storage device structures, high-speed computer interfaces, and various algorithms. The accumulated IPs and SOC architectures for high-end integrated system design and brief analysis of IC-level development roadmap in this field will also be presented.
Wireless Big Data Flying Over the Air
Qinghe Du, Ph.D., Professor, Ph.D. supervisor. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2010. He is currently a professor at the School of Information and Communications Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University, and the deputy director of Shaanxi Smart Networks and Ubiquitous Access Research Center. Engaged in the research of wireless communications and network technologies, he has published more than 100 papers in international technical journals and conferences in recent years. He received the Best Paper Award of China Communications in 2017 and 2020, the IEEE COMCOMAP 2019 Best Paper Award in 2019, and the IEEE / CIC ICCC Best Paper Award in 2021.

Future user demand for assurance of ubiquitous access and information exchange will yield massive data over wireless networks. In contrast to wired networks, the wireless data carried by the electromagnetic wave disseminates through open space. Consequently, information “flying” over the air can be captured and used in many scenarios, such as low-latency applications, early-stage detection, etc. I thoroughly introduce the definition and features of big data in wireless environments, the vision of wireless big-data application in 5G networks, and its evolution. I also lead the audience to discuss how to use wireless big data over the air to assist in performance improvement of massive wireless IoT access, network anomaly detection, etc. I conclude by sharing my research team’s views on future research directions in this area.
