SSCS Member-at-Large 2023-2025

Each year, SSCS rotates out the five Members-at-Large whose term on the AdCom will be ending in December. This is done through the annual SSCS AdCom Election, which is currently underway and runs until 11 November.


The role of a Member, at-Large is to understand the society’s strategic plan, and consider and vote on motions aimed at supporting our strategy through new or modified programs and services. Members at Large, along with other AdCom members, are responsible for providing financial oversight, ensuring adequate resources for SSCS to fulfill its mission, ensuring legal and ethical integrity, effective organizational planning, recruiting and orienting new AdCom members, and enhancing SSCS’s public standing through involvement in the society’s various committees.

Candidate information can be found here and the ballot is here. Don't forget to vote before 11 November! 

If you have any questions, please email the Society Administrative Office at SSCS-Elections@ieee.org.

September Webinar

Low-Power Acoustic Inertial Measurement Chips for Health Informatics and IoT

Presentor: Farrokh Ayazi

Thursday, September 29th, 10 AM ET 

Register now!

This talk describes the development of acoustic inertial measurement sensors which comprises of wideband uni-directional accelerometer contact microphones with micro-gravity resolution and multi-axis resonator gyroscopes with self-calibration capabilities for use as acoustic auscultation devices in body-worn sensor arrays. Combining such devices into a multi-degree-of-freedom inertial measurement unit (IMU) on a single-chip enables the simultaneous measurement of pulmonary lung sounds, chest wall motion, heart mechano-acoustic signals, as well as of user body motion. The CMOS ASIC for the acoustic IMU consists of switched capacitor and transimpedance amplifier front-end circuits that utilize correlated double sampling and chopping for the dynamic cancellation of offset and flicker noise, and use charge injection calibration techniques to compensate for MEMS capacitor mismatch.  For tuning and alignment of gyroscopic resonators, low-noise high-voltage (20V) charge pumps are implemented on-chip. We discuss the prospects of reducing power while maintaining precision in interface ICs for MEMS IMUs and review a few IoT applications of these devices.

What I Have Learned from Serendipity in My Career - Sponsored by SSCS Women in Circuits

VIRTUAL WEBINAR

Click here to catch it on YouTube!

Serendipity can be defined as the development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way, but it could also be the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not explicitly sough for.

Join us on July 25th for a webinar "What I have Learned from Serendipity in My Career" by Jose Robert Alvarez, Senior Director, Intel Programmable Solutions Group.

Jose will talk about his journey through unexpected life experiences and how it affected his professional and personal life.
