The people who have trusted us so far
Towards increasing student engagement and supporting students activity the IEEE Estonian Section is supporting the IT faculty student council welcoming event “IT-teaduskonna rebaste ristimine” .
Electronics and embedded systems are wide-ranging multidisciplinary research fields of rapid growth and expansion. The conference will provide an opportunity to come together and discuss ones recent research work at an international forum.
The conference is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Tallinn University of Technology; to the 45th anniversary of the Department of Electronics; and to the 50th anniversary of the Association of Estonian Electronics Engineers.
We’d like to announce an event organized in co-operation with IEEE Estonia Young Professionals:
The event is dedicated to (serious) game design in Unreal Engine 4 and consists of a seminar part (lecture + talks, seat limit 30) and a workshop (VR lab, seat limit 15).
In order to register, please use the meetup.com page, and if you are interested in the workshop, please also register to it separately following the link on meetup.com. We are looking forward to welcoming you at this event!
In August 2012, the new Board for IEEE Estonia Section was elected. In a web-based election conducted throughout August, about 15% of members cast their vote. The election results were announced by Section Chair Urmet Jänes at the annual August Seminar at Sagadi Manor.
Starting January 1st 2013, the Estonia Section will be led by the following people:
Section Chair Kalle Tammemäe
Section Vice-Chair Gert Jervan
Section Treasurer Eiko Kängsep
Section Secretary Andres Mellik

Thursday, June 16th 2016 at 14:00, TUT auditorium U02-307
Also other activities carried on in OPEM Laboratory of Univ. of Oulu will be discussed, e.g.:
- Organic solar cells and organic LEDs by additive deposition and printing technologies, memristors and microlens arrays, novel characterization tools for thin film structures, synchronized thermography method and Printed Intelligence Research group (within
Printocent industrial cluster)
- Reliable cost-effective food quality screening, personalized e-health system, novel miniaturized biosensors and health monitoring via wireless communication, functional non-invasive brain imaging with optics-based tools, multi-modal data acquisition approach for medical diagnosis, nano anti-Stokes luminophores (NAL) technology for cancer detection etc.
- Active role of OPEM laboratory in different R&D networks like, e.g. Biophotonics4Life Worldwide consortium and Baltic Sea Research Network NanoPhoto

Coffee & refreshments will be served before the talk
It is for sure a challenge to achieve high output power in a low-voltage
CMOS technology. Furthermore, the high dynamic range requirements of
wireless standards emphasize the need for efficient power control,
whereas the battery lifetime requirements put a challenge on the peak
The first part of this talk will focus on power combining and
linearization as key enablers for high-linearity, high-efficiency, fully
integrated and reconfigurable CMOS power amplifiers.
The second part of the talk will focus on CMOS mm-wave power amplifiers.
CMOS technology scaling, together with the availability of the 60GHz
frequency band, has spurred the interest in mm-wave CMOS circuits. CMOS,
however, operates at a low supply voltage and is not tailored for
mm-wave operation. As such, achieving sufficient output power in a
nanometer CMOS technology is non-trivial. Some fundamental challenges of
mm-wave CMOS circuit design are reviewed, followed by a discussion on
mm-wave CMOS PA design.
Patrick Reynaert received his Ph.D. from the Katholieke Universiteit
Leuven, Belgium, in 2006.
His Ph.D. research focussed on polar modulated CMOS RF power amplifiers.
During 2006-2007, he was a post-doctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and a
member of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center, where he worked on
mm-wave CMOS circuits. During the summer of 2007, he was a visiting
researcher at Infineon Technologies, Austria, Villach, where he worked
on basestation power amplifiers.
Currently, he is an associate professor at the Katholieke Universiteit
Leuven, Dept. Electrical Engineering, and is leading the research on RF
power amplifiers and CMOS mm-wave circuits.
IEEEXtreme 24-Hour Programming Competition took place on 24th of October. There were 7 teams (in each 3 IEEE Student or Graduate Student members) from Estonia participating – 4 teams from Tallinn University of Technology, 2 from University of Tartu and 1 from Estonian IT College.
In tough global competition where more than 2000 teams participated, three of Estonian teams were ranked among the first 100. Table of results:
|X3M||University of Tartu||51|
|50LinesOfCode||Tallinn University of Technology||63|
