SSCS Webinars for Young Excellence
The Solid-State Circuits Society is pleased to announce the IEEE SSCS Webinars for Excellence Program, a new initiative dedicated to Young Professionals.
The inaugural webinar will be a joint webinar co-sponsored by SSCS & tinyML "The Intersection of SSCS and AI -- A Tale of Two Journeys" Presented by Prof. Vivienne Sze, MIT & Boris Murmann, Stanford, and be held on Tuesday, May 26th at 11 AM ET.
During this webinar, Prof. Sze and Prof. Murmann will offer their personal stories, insights, and perspectives of how they see circuits applied to the AI realm. They will provide their views of what AI is and isn't, address the types of AI problems they seek to solve and the angle they apply to leverage their established design expertise. Profs. Sze and Murmann will also offer their projections on future research opportunities and advice on how one can prepare to intersect them.
Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to earn a certificate of participation for this webinar.
Call for Papers - JxCDC Special Topic
A call for papers is now open for Special Topic on Tunneling FETs for Energy-Efficient Computing & Information Processing for publication in the IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JxCDC).
Aims and Scope: This call for papers on Tunneling FETs is for rapid publication of seminal results across the areas of T-FET materials, devices, and circuits for novel computation and information processing paradigms. Paper submissions with key insights into the advantages and challenges of specific T-FET device and material designs and circuit techniques are especially valued in order to guide the semiconductor industry and academia on a path toward more energy-efficient computing.
Open for Submission: April 15th, 2020
Submission Deadline: June 30th, 2020
Publication Online: December 1st, 2020
Submission information and details can be found here.
Upcoming SSCS Webinar in June 2020
The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society will continue its webinar series with a webinar in June.
On June 24th 2020 at 10:00 AM ET, Prof. Klaas Bult, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, will present "Energy Efficient Nyquist-Rate ADCs". Prof. Bult will talk about the focus on power efficiency of Nyquist-rate ADCs and discuss what has been proposed in open literature to reduce the energy consumption, both from a circuit point of view as well as from an architectural point of view. To get a good grasp of how circuit and architectural choices affect the power consumption, a method will be introduced that allows a quick estimation of the power consumption of an ADC, based on the required SNDR, the sampling frequency, the used technology as well as the chosen ADC architecture and circuit implementations.
