Conference Theme: Integrated Circuits toward Smarter Society

Social Events

Integrated circuits improved the quality of human life in evolutionary and revolutionary ways by providing smart devices with internet access and electronic equipment with huge computing power. One of the emerging trends of integrated circuits is to apply the technology toward the smarter society, which drastically improves the quality of life of people with the aid of mass-producible electronic devices equipped with high performance & low power integrated circuits. Sensors, RF and analog circuits, data converters, and digital signal processing circuits will be required to implement the smart mobile devices which enable high-quality human life. State-of-the-art R&D results will be presented in the conference.
