IEEE Sensor Interfaces Meeting 2022
Veldhoven, the Netherlands - May 16-17, 2022
The first ever IEEE Sensor Interfaces Meeting (SIM) will be held May 16-17, 2022 in Veldhoven, the Netherlands.
This is a focused two-day event featuring 12 outstanding invited speakers from both academia and industry. The theme focus of the 1st day will be “Sensor interfaces for the Internet of Things,” while that of the 2nd day will be “High Performance Sensor Interfaces”. On each of the two days there will be six 40-minute talks followed by 10 minute Q&A sessions.
The coffee breaks and shared lunches will offer the onsite attendees plenty of opportunities to interact with speakers and colleagues, and to have discussions about the state-of-the-art, and even more importantly, about the challenges and future trends in this most demanding and growing area of analogue and mixed-signal system design.

SSCS Young Professionals for Excellence Webinar
Understanding Work Culture and Its Importance to Succeed
Panelists: Carolina Mora Lopez, Alice Wang, and Vivek Subramanian
Wednesday, July 13th, 11 AM ET, Click here to register!
The famous quote “Culture eats strategy for breakfast “ from Peter Drucker implies that a company's culture is decisive to attainment. Culture isn’t about comfy chairs; rather, it is about the shared value, attributes, and characteristics of a company on how they handle situations like high pressure or tough deadlines, treat customers or business partners, and beyond. As a young professional and a future employee, you might wonder how one contributes to the working culture and how the human factor plays a role in the working environment. You might even wonder what a healthy culture really means fundamentally and what you can do to adapt to it. In this webinar, we invite three senior professionals who have worked in multiple organizations around the globe. They will share their personal journeys of working in different environments and how they adapt to different cultures. Live Q&A session will follow to answer all the questions. Registration is free and open to all.
Upcoming SSCS Webinar - "Towards High Efficiency Rational Switched-Capacitor Power Converter Topologies" - Presented by Prof. Man-Kay Law
Thursday, June 30th, 9:00 AM ET
Abstract: With the advantages of higher-quality on-chip power components, fine system integrability and better loop stability, switched-capacitor power converters (SCPC) have attracted widespread interests in large-scale SoCs, low-power wireless integrated systems, and energy-harvesting-powered sensor microsystems. However, such applications typically require a high conversion efficiency in a small form factor as well as dynamic input/output voltage adaptation, inevitably raising the design challenges due to the diverse intrinsic limitations with the conventional SCPC topologies. This presentation will first review the key fundamental principles of SCPCs, together with the theoretical loss evaluation models. It will then introduce state-of-the-art rational topology designs and circuit implementations. The design tradeoffs among different rational topologies will also be introduced.
Biography: Man-Kay Law received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2006 and 2011, respectively. In 2011, he joined the State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI, University of Macau, Macau, China, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests include ultra-low power sensing circuits and systems, analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, and energy harvesting techniques. He served as a distinguished lecturer for both IEEE SSCS and IEEE CASS. He is a senior member of IEEE, and is a member of the Technical Program Committee of ISSCC.
