Written by Colin Wood

The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services this week announced the launch of a new data system that it says will help social workers collect information from families in their homes and will also alleviate some of the the administrative burden of local service providers that depend on the state. digital infrastructure.

The department hired last summer Strategic Solutions Group, a Massachusetts software company that performed a similar upgrade for the state government there, to install a new system, called TRAC-IT, using its Casetivity platform. Catherine Hancock, early intervention program manager for the Department of Behavioral Health, told StateScoop that she is replacing a legacy platform that is at least 17 years old and would have quickly struggled to meet federal requirements for of declaration.

“It certainly met all the federal requirements for registration, but it didn’t allow us to do an analysis of that, and it wouldn’t allow us to meet the new analysis requirements that our grant requires from the two next few years,” she said. said.

The program supports the department’s Part C Early Intervention Program, Virginia’s instantiation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act provision calling for services for children ages zero to three who have disabilities or developmental delays.

“This is going to allow us to make a lot of efficiency gains.”

Catherine Hancock, Early Intervention Program Manager

Hancock said the new system, which cost nearly $1.5 million “for the year of implementation,” adds “lots of new features,” including an electronic medical records system that can be used by the state’s 40 local providers and a case management system.

“It’s going to help us comply with our federal regulations and requirements because there are several different timeframes that need to be met to provide services to children and that way there’s a dashboard on the provider screen. and they can see that they respect them,” she said.

This fall, she said the department hopes to add new offline functionality allowing social workers to sit down with families receiving services and enter information into the system, even if their home doesn’t have internet access. .

The new system could also relieve the efforts of some of the state’s local service providers, who Hancock said have developed a new paper-based medical records system but can now piggyback onto the state’s platform. . She said the department is also working with vendors that have electronic systems so they can upload their data directly to the new platform.

“It’s going to save us a lot of money by helping at the state level to monitor service delivery,” Hancock said.

What you will learn:

  • The thermal problem that researchers seek to alleviate.
  • The unusual two-step technique they researched and tested.
  • The multiple implications and results of their approach.

Keeping hot components and especially power supplies within their maximum allowable thermal limits is a pervasive design challenge. Among the many techniques used are top heat sinks, thermal interface pads or diamond films, bottom dissipation via the PCB, heat sinks, heat pipes, etc., coupled with active or passive cooling using the convection, conduction and even radiation.

The challenge increases when other heat sources are nearby: cooling options are highly dependent on the temperature difference between the heat source and the so-called “far” location that this unwanted heat is being transferred to.

Now, a team from the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), in collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), has devised an unconventional scheme that definitely helps ward off these hot components, but with some complications in implementation and use.

Creation of the coating

Their approach first coats the devices with an electrically insulating layer of Parylene C, widely used for conformal coating of fully loaded printed circuit boards to provide protection against moisture and corrosive gases.1,2,3,4 Subsequently, using successive depositions with thermal evaporation, electroless plating and electroplating, a conformal copper coating is monolithically grown on the parylene C (Fig.1).

(b) Diagram of the deposition of a 20 nm thick Cr layer followed by a 50 nm thick Cu layer via PVD. (c) Schematic of electroless Cu deposition to cover shadowed regions under devices and create a continuous Cu film that can conduct electric current from the FR-4 to the top of the device. (d) Schematic showing further Cu growth using dc. Cu electroplating. (e) Calculated thermal resistance RP of parylene C and specific thermal resistance based on measured thickness tP of parylene C. (f) Maximum voltage drop applied across the parylene C layer for different devices tested. Solid green bars and shaded red bars correspond to layers that passed (leakage current <1 µA) et échoué (courant de fuite >1 µA) to the voltage test, respectively. (g) Cu coating thickness as a function of electroplating time. (Credit: UIUC)

Conformal copper reaches beneath devices to create contact with heat-generating regions, then provides heat dissipation pathways along all surfaces and conductors of the device enclosure. This allows the copper to be close to the heat generating elements, eliminating the need for thermal interface materials and providing improved cooling performance over existing technologies.

Test results

They tested performance using both air and water cooling with two different GaN power transistors: a top-cooled GS66508T surface mount device (SMD) and an EPC2034 ball array device (BGA). cooled from above. (Figs. 2 and 3). The team showed that it can be used in systems operating up to 600 V.

Among their many test results, they found a low junction-ambient specific thermal resistance of 2.3 cm2-K/W in the air at rest and 0.7 cm2-K/W in water at rest (Fig.4).

JVS in the insert corresponds to the place of the thermocouple in the network of thermal resistances. JJTamband RJC in the inset correspond respectively to the junction temperature of the device, to the ambient temperature of the fluid and to the junction-to-case thermal resistance of the device.

(Credit: UIUC)

Tarek Gebrael, lead author and a UIUC Ph.D. mechanical engineering student, noted the three advantages of this approach: the main material used is copper, which is relatively inexpensive; the copper coating fully “engulfs” the device and covers all exposed surfaces, so no heat-producing regions are overlooked; and no thermal interface material is needed because the device and copper heat sink are essentially one piece, eliminating the need for a heat sink.

Co-author Nenad Miljkovic, Associate Professor of Mechanical Science and Engineering at UIUC and advisor to Gebrael, noted, “This technology bridges two distinct approaches to thermal management: cooling at the devices near the junction and heat propagation at board level.”

Gabrael added, “In our study, we compared our coatings to standard heat dissipation methods, which results in much higher power per unit volume. We were able to demonstrate a 740% increase in power per unit volume.

What’s the verdict?

My opinion is that this impressive statement, while mathematically true, is partly due to careful use of numbers with a much smaller denominator, which is due to the extreme thinness of the copper coating. Interestingly, there are quite a few comments on this document and its claimed benefits, including some very negative to a Ars-Technica forum.5 Additionally, the authors also do not address the practical implications of such an overall conformal conductive coating on product testing, use, or repair, but most products must balance more efficient cooling with these other factors. .

The work is featured in their brief article “High-efficiency cooling through monolithic copper integration on electronic devices” Posted in Natureaccompanied by a 44-page dossier Additional information case. The latter contains extensive procedural details, thermal and mechanical modeling and simulation, result tables and much more.

Conducted by OMB Research for the pensions regulator, the survey of 203 administrators showed that while new regulations were of concern to 66% of all respondents, that number rose to 72% for internal teams , compared to 43% for third parties. -party administrators.

The research, conducted between November 2020 and January 2021, also showed that recruiting, training and retaining staff is a concern for 37% of respondents, followed by system restrictions or lack of appropriate technology (32%).

In addition, two-thirds of administrators (66%) agreed that recruiting skilled and experienced pension administration staff was a challenge, and about one-third (37%) felt that retaining such staff was a challenge. problem.

Nonetheless, the majority (64%) felt they had enough resources to provide the administrative services that plan trustees/managers needed.

When it comes to plan administrators’ and plan managers’ engagement with administration, 43% of respondents believe it has increased over the past 12 months.

Data quality (69%), equalization and rectification of guaranteed minimum pensions (63%), business continuity (59%) and scams (54%) were the topics that dominated engagement at the over the past year, the research found.

Although more than nine in 10 administrators use electronic systems/software to maintain their active and deferred membership records, about half also used non-electronic methods, typically paper records kept in the office.

With regard to pension dashboards, although lower on the commitment scale for trustees and plan managers (15%), the majority of administrators are aware that plans will be required to provide data to savers via dashboards (73%).

However, awareness was lower among smaller administrators, covering schemes with less than 1,000 members. 39% of them had never heard of dashboards and 23% were aware of them but not the obligation to provide data to savers.

The research also showed that the top challenges administrators expected to face when preparing dashboards were knowing what was required (49%) and software compatibility (48%). This is followed by concerns about capacity (33%), cost (33%), data availability (25%) and data accuracy (22%).

TPR was generally expected to inform administrators of the requirements (80%), although many also expected to learn more about it from other sources such as the pension dashboard program (54 %), industry bodies (44%) or the Department for Work and Pensions (30 per cent).

Federal agents have begun questioning US tech companies about how their computer chips ended up in Russian military hardware recovered from Ukraine.

Commerce Department officials who enforce export controls are leading the investigations with the FBI, making joint visits to businesses to inquire about Western chips and components found in Russian radar systems, drones, tanks, ground control equipment and coastal vessels, people say close to the case, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive investigations.

“Our goal is actually to try to trace that, back to the American supplier” to determine “how it ended up in that weapons system,” a Commerce Department official said of the probes.

“Just because a chip, a company’s chip, is in a weapon system doesn’t mean we’ve opened an investigation into that company,” the official added. “What we have done, however, is we have opened an investigation into how this company’s chip got into this system.”

Russian drones shot down over Ukraine were filled with Western parts. Can the United States cut them?

It is unclear which specific components are probed. But investigators from various countries have identified Western electronic components in Russian weapons found in Ukraine. Many of these components appear to have been made years ago, before the United States tightened export restrictions after Russia seized Crimea in 2014. But others were made as recently as 2020, according to Conflict Weapons Research (CAR), a research group in London that examined some of the coins.

For years, it was legal for companies to sell commodity computer chips to Russian military entities without first receiving permission from the US government. Therefore, to identify illegal sales, one must determine the type of chip and the date of sale. Tracing transactions can also be cumbersome because electronic components often pass through a chain of distributors before reaching the end user.

A lawyer representing one of the tech companies contacted said investigators for now are casting a “wide net”, examining a variety of different chips and electronic components to trace the paths they took to the military. Russian.

Among the questions federal agents are asking: whether the tech companies sold their products to a specific list of companies, including middlemen, who may have been involved in the supply chain, the lawyer said.

Russia manufactures few computer chips or electronic devices itself, forcing it to rely on imports.

For decades, the United States has tightly controlled sales to Russia of the highest-tech chips and those designed for military use, requiring exporters to obtain a government license. But sales of electronics below that threshold — including those commonly found in commercial products — weren’t largely restricted until 2014, when the United States began requiring exporters to they obtain licenses before selling a wider range of chips to the Russian military.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, the United States and many allies have banned all chip sales to Russian military buyers and imposed restrictions on chip sales to other Russian buyers in the purpose of preventing the country’s armed forces from gaining access to Western high technology.

The federal investigations come as researchers and security services from Ukraine, Britain and elsewhere report finding a slew of Western electronics in damaged or abandoned Russian military gear in Ukraine.

Sanctions forcing Russia to use aircraft parts in military equipment, US says

Last month, the CAR sent investigators to Ukraine to examine Russian weapons and communications equipment, and components found reported of 70 companies based in the United States and Europe.

They found parts in military radios, airborne defense systems and in remnants of cruise missiles that the Ukrainians recovered from various towns and villages, Damien Spleeters, one of the CAR investigators, said in a statement. interview.

The CAR is currently declining to name the Western companies involved, as it continues to contact them for more information, Spleeters said.

Marks on two foreign-made chips that Spleeters examined showed they were made in 2019, he said.

“It’s important to me because it shows that even after Russia took Crimea and the first round of sanctions was taken against them, they still managed to acquire critical technology, critical components for parts equipment that they are now using against Ukraine,” Spleeters said. said.

These chips, found inside two Russian military radios recovered from Ukraine’s Luhansk region, had some of their identification marks scratched out, suggesting that Russia “wanted to make it harder to find out who was involved in the chain of supply,” Spleeters said.

Another set of chips made by Western companies between 2017 and 2020 were part of missile fragments that struck the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv on March 29, Spleeters said. At the time, Russian forces were trying to seize a large swath of Ukraine’s Black Sea coast.

CAR also examined Western-made chips made between 2013 and 2018 that were part of a missile that landed in central Ukraine on Feb. 24, the first day of the Russian invasion, Spleeters said.

CAR’s latest findings follow a report by the group late last year that detailed Western electronics found in several Russian military drones.

A team from a separate UK group – the Royal United Services Institute, or RUSI, a defence-focused think tank – also visited Ukraine recently to inspect Russian equipment and examine military-led takedowns Ukrainian.

A single radio jamming device revealed computer chips from a dozen US companies, including Intel, Analog Devices, Texas Instruments and Onsemi, according to a report RUSI published in April. The equipment also contained components from half a dozen chipmakers in Europe, Japan and Taiwan.

The report published component part numbers, which the Washington Post used to identify the chip companies.

The radio interference equipment, codenamed Borisoglebsk-2, was designed to disrupt enemy communications and was likely manufactured around 2015 or later, Nick Reynolds, one of the report’s authors, said in a statement. interview.

None of the Western chips were specifically designed for use in military equipment, according to two electrical engineers who reviewed the component list. The parts were developed for general commercial use, and many were relatively outdated, made between 2000 and 2010, the engineers said.

“Many of these components are very general purpose and could be used in a wide range of devices,” said Peter Bermel, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University. “Most of the items they list are available from any commercial computer parts supplier or digital parts supplier.”

“A sizeable fraction of these parts are now considered obsolete by manufacturers,” Bermel added.

China cuts tech exports to Russia after US sanctions

Reynolds, a land warfare research analyst at RUSI, said Russia’s technical demise in recent decades, partly caused by a massive post-Soviet brain drain, has forced it to use Western chips. “Its defense industry struggled to attract and retain talented young engineers, who often opted to go overseas,” Reynolds said by email.

Intel spokesman William Moss said that for more than a decade, all of the company’s “sales in Russia have been through distributors responsible for compliance with applicable laws, including U.S. export controls”.

“Intel suspended all shipments to customers in Russia and Belarus, and Intel will continue to comply with all applicable export regulations and sanctions,” he added.

Onsemi, a Phoenix-based chip company, said it stopped producing one of the chips found in Russian equipment in 2008. The chip was “designed for a variety of uses in commercial products” , spokeswoman Stefanie Cuene said, adding that the company is in compliance. US export controls and does not currently sell any products to Russia or Belarus.

Texas Instruments “complies with applicable laws and regulations” and “does not sell any products in Russia or Belarus,” spokeswoman Ellen Fishpaw said.

Analog Devices, the company behind more than a dozen components found in the Russian gear, did not respond to requests for comment.

RUSI researchers also reported inspecting a US-made component that the Ukrainian military found inside a Russian 9M949 guided rocket. The rocket uses the component – a type of electronic device called a fiber optic gyroscope – for navigation, RUSI said.

The British researchers declined to name the American company that made this component, saying that RUSI was continuing to research this and other components.

EVMs are based on a technology where they function as a vote aggregator in direct elections and not for a proportional representation system

EVMs are based on a technology where they function as a vote aggregator in direct elections and not for a proportional representation system

Have you ever wondered why electronic voting machines, used in four Lok Sabha elections and 127 assembly polls since 2004, are not deployed in polls to elect the President and Vice President of India, members of the Rajya Sabha and members of state legislative councils? EVMs are based on technology where they function as a vote aggregator in direct elections such as the Lok Sabha and State Assemblies.

The voter presses the button opposite the name of the candidate of his choice and the one who receives the maximum number of votes is declared elected.

But the election of the President takes place according to the system of proportional representation by means of a single transferable vote.

In accordance with the system of proportional representation by single transferable vote, each voter can mark as many preferences as there are candidates running.

These preferences for candidates should be marked by the voter, by placing the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on, against the candidates’ names, in order of preference, in the space provided in column 2 of the ballot.

EVMs, officials explained, are not designed to record this voting system. EVM is a vote aggregator and under the proportional representation system the machine will have to calculate votes based on preferences and that requires quite a different technology.

In other words, a different type of EVM would be needed.

According to the August 2021 issue of “My Vote Matters”, a quarterly magazine of the Electoral Commission, since 2004, EVMs have been used in four Lok Sabha elections and 127 assembly elections.

According to the EC website, first designed in 1977 by the Electoral Commission, the Electronics Corporation of India Ltd. (ECIL), Hyderabad was given the task of designing and developing it.

In 1979, a prototype was developed, which was demonstrated by the Electoral Commission to representatives of political parties on August 6, 1980. Bharat Electronic Ltd (BEL), Bangalore, another public sector company, was co-opted with ECIL to manufacture EVMs once a broad consensus has been reached on its introduction.

The machines were first used in the assembly election in Kerala in May 1982. However, the lack of a specific law mandating its use led to the Supreme Court nullifying that election.

Subsequently, in 1989, Parliament amended the Representation of the People Act 1951 to create a provision for the use of EVMs in elections.

A general consensus on its introduction could not be reached until 1998 and these were used in 25 legislative assembly constituencies spread across three states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi.

In assembly elections held in May 2001 in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry and West Bengal, EVMs were used in all assembly constituencies.

Since then, for every State Assembly election, the Commission has used EVMs.

In Lok Sabha polls in 2004, more than ten million MVEs were used in the country’s 543 parliamentary constituencies.
