Conference Overview

The IEEE A-SSCC 2018 (Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference) is an international forum for presenting the most updated and advanced chips and circuit designs in solid-state and semiconductor fields. The conference is supported by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and will be held in Asia.

Conference Theme: Silicon Enabling Mobile Intelligence

The miniaturized silicon technology enabled big success in the realization of software solutions such as machine learning, big data, virtual and augmented realty in the image and speech recognition, the medical diagnosis and the autonomous driving automobiles. The current software solutions, however, consume huge power by employing cloud computers along with many graphic processing units and a large amount of memory. Nowadays, the integrated circuit design community tries to develop efficient low-power mobile intelligence solutions by taking challenges in the design of digital and analog circuits, processor architecture, and system for compact IoT devices.

Conference Program

The conference technical program includes 4 plenary talks, 1 panel discussion, 1 industry session, and 4 tutorials. The 86 regular papers are grouped in 16 sessions covering analog circuits, data converters, digital circuits and systems, emerging technology and applications, memory, radio-frequency circuits, system-on-chip and signal processing, wireline and mixed signal circuits. The Student Design Contest will feature demos from the best student papers.
