Reversible Logic: A Game Changing Communication Protocol for Connecting a Massive Number of Internet of Things

Dr. Jahangir H. Sarker,

Wednesday, November 27, 2019
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Carleton University, 4359 ME,
Refreshments will be served


The world’s population was an estimated 7.6 billion in December 2017. In the same year, there were 8.4 billion connected things and thus, the amount of Internet of Things (IoT) devices outnumbered the world’s population. According to the prediction of a Gartner research, the IoT will connect up to 50 to 100 billion devices by 2020. As such, it can be realized that Moore’s law of doubling the circuit density every 10 months or semiconductor miniaturization cannot continue to be a solution by 2020 due to excessive heat dissipation in the traditional irreversible logic operation. On the other hand, reversible logic can reduce heat dissipation significantly and thus produce a very high energy efficient computation paradigm by simply removing this information or bit losses. Wireless communication uses energy or power for analog transmissions, while computation uses power for signal processing and other duties related to transmission and reception. If the link distance is less than 10 meters in a small cell wireless networking system, the computing power is higher than the analog transmissions power. It is expected that in the near future, most wireless communication systems will have low link distances. Therefore, it is essential to search for a new wireless access technology, which will not only provide an incredibly high number of connected devices but will also support an energy-efficient computation paradigm. In future smart cities, a very small volume of space will contain millions of wirelessly connected sensors and actuators using IoT. Energy or power efficiency is one of the most important factors for wireless communications among a massive number of IoT things. Most of the researches in reversible computing have tried to find the lossless VLSI circuit design. Several wireless networking advantages of reversibility logic inclusion in the mobile terminal using artificial intelligence will also be presented in this talk.


Jahangir H. Sarker received the Master of Science in Technology, Licentiate of Science in Technology, and Doctor of Science in Technology degrees from Helsinki University of Technology (HUT), Espoo, Finland, in 1996, 2000, and 2005, respectively, all in electrical and communications eng. He is the author or co-author of more than 85 technical papers.
He was with the Communications Laboratory, Helsinki University of Technology, between 1996-2002 and 2003-2004 as Research Scientist. From 2002 to 2003 he was with Espoo-Vantaa Institute of Technology, Finland. He joined the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, in 2005, as a Research Scientist. He had been a Project Manager at VTT level for WINNER (Wireless World Initiative New Radio) project, where 42 partners were the members internationally. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the École De Technologie Supérieure, Montréal, Canada, from 2006 to 2007. He was with the University of Ottawa as a Postdoctoral Fellow from January 2008 to September 2012. He was with the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Al-Lith, Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from September 2012 to April 2019. Dr. Sarker served as an Associate Professor and Vice-Dean for Higher Education & Scientific Research at the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Al-Lith, Umm Al-Qura University. Dr. Sarker is a senior member of IEEE and a registered Professional Engineer (P. Eng.) in the province of Ontario, Canada.
Invited by: Professor Mohamed Ibnkahla.
