The IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) is an international forum for presentation of advances in solid-state circuit design technologies. This annual conference is fully supported by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS), and is traveling around Asian countries. The A-SSCC offers a unique opportunity for engineers, researchers, and business leaders to come together and explore the future of circuit design technologies, as well as to stay on-site and feel the breath of Asian countries in the rapidly globalizing IC industry.

Special Lecture

"How to Write a Good JSSC Paper" Bram Nauta (Twente Univ.)



Industrial Program

In the industry program, papers on cutting-edge IC products are presented with application, designed measurement information. There are two parallel sessions with 8 papers from Mediatek (Taiwan), Sharp (Japan), Kawasaki Microelectronics (USA), Toshiba (Japan), IBM Semiconductor R&D (USA), Intel (USA) Samsung (Korea) and Rambus (USA).



Student Design Contest

11 outstanding chip designs from the accepted student papers will make real demonstrations on the conference site with authors’ explanation. The best student design will be selected among those 11 demonstrations reflecting the high research standards of Asian academies.
