The SSCS (Solid-State Circuit Society) Student Chapter Leuven aims to promote micro-electronics for master students and PhD students and to bridge the gap between academia and industry. SSCS focuses on fabricated integrated circuit designs (chips) for all applications using relevant materials and interconnections. To promote this, the Student Chapter organizes a variety of activities like lectures and symposia.
On October 16th 2019 the student chapter welcomed Professor Emeritus Willy Sansen, who gave the talk ‘Learning from History’. He guided the attendees through the history of MICAS, explaining the pillars of its success and what can be learned from its past.
On May 14th, 2019, the SSCS Student Chapter Leuven organized the 1st edition of the Microelectronics Micro Symposium. Numerous speakers from industry and academia came to give a talk on the topic “The car of the future”. We thank Pieter De Muyter (ICsense), Wouter Leten (Melexis), Bert Moons (Synopsys) and professor Kofi Makinwa (TU Delft) for their interesting talks!
On February 13th, 2019, the SSCS Student Chapter Leuven organized its opening event. We had the honour to invite Marcel Pelgrom to give a lecture ‘Moore and me: 40 years of scaling and beyond‘.
