RFSOI Short Course – Great Line-Up! (EuroSOI, March 2018)


RF-SOI is in every smart phone out there, and with 5G, there are lots more applications on the horizon. If you’d like to learn more about designing in RF-SOI, there’s a great short course coming up the day before and in conjunction with the EuroSOI-ULIS Conference in Granada, Spain.

The title of this short course is RFSOI: from basics to practical use of wireless technology. Program and registration details can be found here. The course runs for the full day on Sunday, 18 March 2018.

The talks, which are being given by a stellar line-up of experts, include:

  • RF SOI, fabrication, materials and eco-system – Ionut Radu Director of Advanced R&D, Soitec
  • Fundamentals of RF SOI technology – Jean-Pierre Raskin, Professor, UCL
  • 22nm FDSOI Technology optimized for RF/mmWave Applications – David L. Harame, RF CTO Development and Enablement, GlobalFoundries
  • RF SOI technology and components for 5G connectivity – Christine Raynaud, Program Manager (Business Development – Technology to Design), CEA-Leti
  • Analog and RF design on SOI – Barend van Liempd, Senior Researcher, imec
  • Techniques and tricks for RF measurements on SOI – Andrej Rumiantsev, Director RF Technologies, MPI Corporation
  • FOSS TCAD/EDA tools for advanced SOI-device modeling – Wladek Grabinski, R&D CM Manager, MOS-AK
  • RF design flow for SOI – Ian Dennison, Design Systems Senior Group Director, Cadence

The course is being organized by SOI Consortium members Incize and Soitec.

BTW, this year marks the 4th joint EUROSOI – ULIS Conference. The EuroSOI Conference, which has been ongoing for decades, is well paired with the ULtimate Integration on Silicon Conference. The joint conference provides an interactive forum for scientists and engineers working in the field of SOI technology and advanced nanoscale devices. One of the key objectives is to promote collaboration and partnership between different players from academia, research and industry. As such, it covers technical topics, industry trends and updates from pertinent European programs.

EuroSOI-ULIS will take place 19–21 March 2018 at the University of Granada in Spain. For information on the program and how to register, see the website. Following the conference, the papers will be available at the IEEE Xplore® digital library, and the best papers will be published in a special issue of Solid-State Electronics.
