Two ICSL (Prof. Jaehyouk Choi)’s papers have been accepted for presentation at IEEE ISSCC (International Solid-State Circuits Conference) in San Francisco in February 2018.

ISSCC is the single most prestigious conference in the field of semiconductor circuits and systems and also called “Semiconductor Olympic”. Since the first event in 1954, every year more than 3,000 researchers from industry and academia all over the world participate to present and exchange state-of-the-art technologies and research outcomes. The next year’s ISSCC is the 65th and has a theme “Silicon Engineering a Social World”.

In this year, UNIST made a remarkable achievement by making two papers selected, and it is ranked at the 4th place among the institutions of Korea, following Samsung Electronics, KAIST, and SK Hynix.

The first authors of the two selected papers are Heein Yoon and Taeho Seong. In her research, Heein presents transceiver-IC technologies for future 5G mobile communications, and they are expected to be the fundamental technologies for the successful launch of 5G in the global market. In the other paper, Taeho presents a new concept of an ultra-low noise clock generation technique. The circuit proposed by Taeho is expected to make the manufacturing cost of semiconductor chips greatly reduced.
