Miles A. Copeland wins 2016 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award


The recipient of the 2016 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits is Miles A. Copeland for contributions to the design and application of switched-capacitor and RF signal processing circuits.

Miles A. Copeland’s 31-year career is marked by the strength of his achievements as a university teacher, inventor, researcher, and mentor. His innovative approach to industry-university collaboration supported the rapid development of the telecommunication and microelectronics industries in Canada. He co-authored, with Northern Telecom (Nortel), a ground-breaking paper on the use of switched capacitors as resistor equivalents, which demonstrated that filter RC time constants on-chip could depend on the ratio of capacitor sizes. This results in much better integration, repeatability, and accuracy when implementing analog filters on chip than is possible with ordinary resistors. The “filter codec” developed subsequently at Nortel used switched capacitor filtering. With this innovation the company became an early leader in the shift to fully electronic switching networks. Other research work done by Miles's graduate students included much cited studies of the matching of on-chip capacitors and transistors, and how to design on-chip transformers and inductors in CMOS/BiCMOS technologies. This supported the design of fully integrated on-chip radios at Ghz frequencies. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Copeland is a Professor Emeritus with Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

ESSCIRC 2015 - 41st European Solid-State Circuits Conference


From September 14 to 18, 2015 the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC) is providing an annual European forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in solid-state devices and circuits. While keeping separate Technical Program Committees, ESSCIRC and ESSDERC are governed by a common Steering Committee and share Plenary Keynote Presentations and Joint Sessions bridging both communities. Attendees registered for either conference are encouraged to attend any of the scheduled parallel sessions, regardless to which conference they belong. For further information CLICK HERE or send an e-mail . The conference program can be downloaded HERE.


New Staff Announcement

Abira Sengupta

Abira Sengupta is the new Administrator for the Solid-State Circuits Society and will be the primary contact for all chapters’ related matters and the Solid-State Circuits Magazine.

As a member of the Society staff team, Abira’s duties will be primarily focused in the areas of member communications, project management, and support services. Abira will be your primary staff contact for the Distinguished Lecturers series, Webinar program support, social media, and the Circuits Magazine editorial support and news reporting’s.

By way of background, Abira graduated from Rutgers University where she studied Journalism and Media Studies. Her prior position before coming to IEEE was as an Assistant Editor at Springer Science + Business Media.  Some of the technical journals and publications Abira supported were in the disciplines of Chemistry, Materials Science, and Engineering.   Additionally, she worked closely with two large societies: The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International.  Abira’s duties included performing copy-editing, assisting in production planning, and working closely with authors and editors to create marketing content for her assigned portfolio of books and journals.

Abira is looking forward to hearing about the latest chapter developments and happenings and featuring your chapter news in the Circuits magazine.

Please contact Abira via email – or telephone – 732-562-2676.


IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium

2016rficAs General Chair, I invite you to participate in the 2016 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, to be held in San Francisco, California, USA, during May 22-24, 2016. RFIC is the premier IC conference focused exclusively on the latest developments in RF, Microwave, and Millimeter Wave Integrated Circuit technology and innovation.

RFIC, the International Microwave Symposium (IMS), ARFTG, and the IMS Industry Exhibition make up the “Microwave Week”, the largest worldwide RF/microwave meeting of the year. Come to Microwave week to learn from the world’s experts through a wide variety of technical sessions, interactive forums, panel sessions, workshops, short courses, industry showcase, industrial exhibits, application seminars, and historical exhibits.
