Course Description

ISSCC Previews: Circuit and System Insights, is a class offered by the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).  The course introduces several key circuit concepts and trends in a tutorial fashion, allowing participants to understand and appreciate the broad themes covered in the ISSCC conference.

These Previews are in the form of eleven, 10-to-18 minute modules taught by leading experts that establish the current state-of-the-art in several fields, including wireless and wireline communication, analog, digital, and memory. Each module will have a few optional questions to test the students understanding of the material covered. The eleven modules are:

  1. How Far Can We Go With Electrical I/O?, Elad Alon, University of California, Berkeley
  2. Exascale Computing—Fact or Fiction?, Shekhar Borkar, Intel
  3. Voltage Scaling Limits: How Low Can Vmin Go?, Leland Chang, IBM
  4. Millimeter-wave and Terahertz Integrat...

ISSCC is the flagship conference of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, and it is the premier forum for presenting advances in solid-state circuits and integrated systems-on-a-chip. The conference, held annually in San Francisco, will celebrate its 62nd anniversary in 2015 and is expected to attract over 3000 circuit experts from around the world. ISSCC 2015 will feature more than 200 stimulating technical papers covering the latest innovations in circuit and system design. In addition, there will be three exciting Plenary talks; Plenary videos from recent years can be found at the ISSCC website: www.isscc.org

This is not a course, it is a collection of conference talks, in this case from International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). Have you ever attended a scientific conference and really wished to be able to freeze the currently presented talk just for a few minutes, to obtain additional background of some key topic of it, essential to be able to understand the talk? This course solve exactly this problem :) I would like to see more MOOCs (MOOConferences) like this in the future! If you are looking for a course teaching electronics/circuits don't take this course, it's only a collection of 11 slightly related and extremely focused research talks.
