MOSIS to hold Advanced Technology Workshop, October 31st

MOSIS, the low-cost integrated circuit prototyping and small-volume semiconductor manufacturing service, which turned 30 years old this year, is holding an Advanced Technology Workshop at the Davidson Conference Center on the University Park Campus of USC on October 31st.

David Mulligan, Sales Director at MOSIS, says that "the purpose of the meeting is to project some of the ways that access to advanced technology for the U.S. research and development community will be enabled in the coming years, and to gather and share input about how to implement these plans from the collected wisdom and experience of U.S. leaders in integrated circuit, photonics, and MEMS design, and from newer areas like carbon electronics"

The agenda for the meeting includes sessions on MOSIS fabrication processes, 3D ICs, and III-V semiconductors.  You can register for the workshop on the MOSIS website.
