2007 Chairman's Message

The IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium (CSICS) will return back to Portland after 20 years. Join us in Portland for the 29th CSIC Symposium October 14-17, 2007, not only to familiarize yourself with the state-of-the-art technology development and industry exhibition, but also to see some old friends who you probably met 20 years ago and make some new friends by experiencing the beauty, comfort and lifestyle of once proclaimed as North America’s “Best Big City”.  

Over the last 29 years, the CSIC Symposium has become the preeminent international forum on developments in integrated circuits using compound semiconductors such as GaAs, InP, GaN, SiGe and other materials including CMOS. Coverage embraces all aspects of the technology, from materials issues and device fabrication, through IC design and testing, high volume manufacturing, and system applications. The CSIC Symposium provides the ideal forum to present your latest results in high-speed digital, analog, microwave/millimeter wave, mixed mode, and optoelectronic integrated circuits. First-time papers concerned with the utilization and application of InP, GaAs, SiGe, GaN and other compound semiconductors in military and commercial products are invited. Specific technical areas of interest include: 

  • Innovative RFIC Device & Circuit Concepts
  • Millimeter-wave/High-Speed CMOS IC
  • Circuit Design & Fabrication
  • Manufacturing Technology & Cost Issues
  • CAD/CAM/CAT Tools & Techniques
  • IC Testing & Methodology
  • Packaging Technology
  • Reliability
  • Advanced Device Applications
  • System Applications (e.g., wireless, vehicular, RADAR, military)
  • Optoelectronic and OEIC applications
