Transistors, monolithic integrated circuits (ICs) and modules for a wide range of applications.
New visions, directions and paradigms for microelectronics of the 21st century - with these goals in mind the Fraunhofer-Leti Workshop took a look into the future.
Experts from both organizations presented the latest trends and first results in the fields of neuromorphic computing, quantum technologies and next-generation microelectronic devices.
Dr. Rüdiger Quay, deputy director of Fraunhofer IAF, was a guest at the event and gave an outlook on the future of cryogenic read out electronics. This is interesting for radio astronomy, and increasingly so for applications in the field of quantum computing, in order to be able to read out the small changes of the switching states in the quantum elements with very little energy.
The Semicon West, which takes place once a year in San Francisco, is the flagship international semicon trade show for the global microelectronics industry. Exhibitors there present their latest products and technologies in the fields of design and manufacturing and cover the entire microelectronics supply chain.
