Giusy Iaria is a Ph.D. candidate in her first year in Computer and Control Engineering at Polytechnic of Turin, Italy. She is part of the CAD & Reliability research group with a strong focus on Embedded electronics testing. She took her Master’s Degree in Computer Engineering at Polytechnic of Turin in 2021. After a research fellowship on the reliability of safety-critical devices, she started her Ph.D. to find strategies and evaluation methods to reach ultra-reliability in Automotive Systems-on-Chip.

Project description: The world of embedded electronic systems is increasingly part of everyone’s daily life. Therefore, the production of chip and embedded systems is becoming more complex and massive in recent years. This aspect is also responsible for the continuous and rapid growth of abnormal system behaviors. The project aims to propose an automated setup that connects Functional Testing and Scan Technique, exploiting the versatility of the functional environment and the accuracy of Design-for-Testability to reduce the time needed for the evaluation of device SEUs effects. Preliminary experimental results show it is possible to inject a single SEU in milliseconds while keeping high accuracy.

Jiacheng Wang received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from China University of Mining and Technology, Beijing in 2021. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in electrical engineering at Zhejiang University. His research interests include power electronics, electromagnetic modeling, and wireless power transmission in different application scenarios, including mobile terminals, automobiles, and underwater robots.

Project description: Metal object detection can improve the safety and reliability of wireless charging systems. A foreign object detection (FOD) method using the impedance characteristics identified on the primary side of the wireless charging system is discussed. Taking the SS compensation network as an example, metric K1 is used to determine the presence of metal foreign objects and metric K2 which qualitatively reflects the impact of metal foreign objects on the wireless charging system is further designed. To convert the solution of high-order non-linear circuit equations into optimization problems, particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used to improve real-time performance and detection accuracy. In simulation, coins and metal plates are successfully detected and distinguished through proposed metrics, which verifies the feasibility of the method.
