You are invited to attend the New Emerging Technology Seminars, Monday September 8th at This Year’s Annual EOS/ESD Symposium

NEW GaN-Based Devices: Technology, Physics and Reliability pdf
GaN-based transistors have recently demonstrated to be excellent devices for application in the RF and power conversion fields. This short course will review the technology, physics and operating principles of GaN-HEMTs; moreover, we will describe the mechanisms that limit the dynamic performance, the lifetime and the ESD robustness of these devices. A critical review of the most recent studies on these topics will be also presented.

NEW Emerging Technology Seminar 3D IC Stack Integration pdf
3D stacking of silicon integrated circuits, using through silicon vias as the interconnect, has been an active topic in the research community for more than a decade. As appealing as the technology is, it has yet to have garnered wide acceptance in high volume products. A brief history of the 3D architecture, practical issues in design, fabrication and assembly of components will be discussed along with a perspective on what’s to come in the future.

There are companies obtaining registration lists from public sources-do not respond to these solicitations concerning room reservations. In order to secure a room at the Westin La Paloma Resort you must book through the proper official channel as provided—Through the housing link or calling Westin direct.
Housing block “pirates” now routinely “poach” event attendees and exhibitors!
The pirating companies gather group’s contact information from published or online directories. They call attendees leaving the impression that they are “official” housing. They will also frequently cite an imminent sell-out of the block while urging you to secure housing immediately. Another tactic is to offer a room rate that is significantly less than the official rate. Offered rooms may be at the Westin La Paloma or at other properties. What they also don’t tell you is that you will pay a daily resort fee of $20 per person/per day.  Please do not respond to these solicitations.
