Tutorials (Sunday, February 11th) Evening Events (February 11th - 13th )

Low-Jitter PLLs for Wireless Transceivers Figures-of-Merit on Trial
Xiang Gao, Credo Semiconductor, Milpitas, CA, USA The goal of this panel is to probe the weaknesses and strengths of popular analog Figures-of-
Merit (FoM) in an entertaining and educational way: To this end, the room will become a
Nonvolatile Circuits for Memory, Logic, and Artificial Intelligence tribunal with the moderator as judge. For each FoM on trial, two panelists will officiate, one
Meng-Fan Chang, National Tsing-Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan becoming the defending advocate of the FoM, and the other the prosecutor, while the audience
Basics of Quantum Computing will become the jury, that will decide which of the two combatants will win. The panelist with
Edoardo Charbon, EPFL, Switzerland highest score will receive an entertaining prize!

Error-Correcting Codes in 5G/NVM Applications

Hsie-Chia Chang, National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan
Lessons Learned – Great Circuits That Didn’t Work
(Oops, If Only I Had Known!)
Hybrid Design of Analog-to-Digital Converters Working on your first (or last) IC can be exciting, stressful, rewarding, and embarrassing.
Seng-Pan (Ben) U, University of Macau, Macau Whatever the lesson learned, be assured that it was experienced by pioneers before you.
Single-Photon Detection in CMOS Failures (mistakes or just bad ideas!) can be valuable learning experiences, but are rarely
Matteo Perenzoni, FBK, Trento, Italy revealed. Tonight, we provide an opportunity for recognized experts to share their past mistakes
and failures, and disclose lessons learned. After the panelists have confessed, the audience
Basics of Adaptive and Resilient Circuits can also contribute “learning experiences” (in less than a minute). Inevitably, this collection
Keith Bowman, Qualcomm, Raleigh, NC, USA of revelations will be motivating: inspiring to the young and inexperienced; and virtuous for
gurus in sharing a universal truth – first-time perfection is rare!
Fundamentals of Switched-Mode Power Converter Design
Hoi Lee, The University of Texas at Dallas, TX, USA
Can Artificial Intelligence Replace My Job?
Digital RF Transmitters
Renaldi Winoto, Tectus, Saratoga, CA, USA – The Dawn of a New IC Industry with AI
The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) capable of human tasks and more and better, is
ADC-Based Serial Links: Design and Analysis approaching fast. Shortly, most businesses, including the IC industry, will choose AI over
Samuel Palermo, Texas A&M University, TX, USA humans, if AI can deliver the same results with lower risks and costs. Consequently, many
questions arise for us: what will be the respective roles of AI and humans in developing ICs?
Forums (February 11th & February 15th) How will AI shape the IC industry? What is the right career choice for young people in the
field? This panel will showcase diverse experts who will share their vision on this daunting
Sunday February 11 th new development in our business.
