Sabanci University Microelectronics Workshop

Microelectronics Technology, Circuits, and Systems for Space Applications Workshop
June 15-17 2015
Sabanci University Istanbul Turkey

We are organizing a Microelectronics Workshop that focuses on microelectronics, from technology to circuits and systems perspective, and its applications on sensing and processing electronic systems for space applications.

Ever increasing space applications are demanding more challenges to be met by microelectronics technology/circuits/systems, especially for autonomous, flexible and reliable systems in space. In this workshop, we aim to address some of following challenges through invited lectures given by world-renowned experts in their respective fields from academia, industries and research institutions.Onlineregistration†will be open untilJune 12th.

Main Topics

  • Radar and Communication Technologies
  • Electro-Optical Imaging Systems: Technology and Applications
  • Micro and Nano Technologies
  • Terahertz Technology and Systems
  • Packaging, Testing and Qualification

Each talk includes a brief tutorial, current state of the art and future vision of the respective topic and will be interest to technology leaders/managers, engineers, researchers, academicians and students from around the world. Additionally, with taking place in poster session each author will have chance to present their outcome, and share the results of their product.

The workshop will be at Sabanci University campus in Tuzla - Istanbul, Turkey.
