The International Reliability Physics Symposium is the world's premier forum addressing Reliability Physics of devices, materials, circuits, and products. The conference hotel is conveniently located a short shuttle ride from the airport, situated between downtown San Francisco and near many Silicon Valley industries.
The IRPS 2018 program includes:
* Three days (Tues-Thurs, March 13-15) of technical sessions including focus sessions on Wide Bandgap, Systems, and 2.5D/3D packaging.
* Two-Day Tutorial Program (Sunday-Monday March 11-12), for both the new and experienced engineer.
* NEW! Prof. Krishna Saraswat of Stanford University will give a lunchtime lecture on Real Limits to Nano-electronics: Interconnects and Contacts
*Keynote lectures by Dr. Nirmal Saxena from NVIDIA and Dr. Sanu Mathew from Intel titled "The Road to Resilient Computing in Autonomous Driving is Paved with Redundancy" and "Reliable Ultra-Low Energy Security Circuit Primitives for IoT Edge Systems"
Please visit our web site for details about the above, as well as the interactive workshops and year in review presentations https://irps.org/.
We look forward to seeing you at IRPS 2018!
NEW: IRPS 2018 Wed Lunchtime talk: "Real Limits to Nanoelectronics: Interconnects and Contacts"
Krishna C. Saraswat
Abstract — As device scaling continues, parasitic source
resistance largely dominated by contact resistance, is beginning
to limit the device performance. While novel structures and
materials have enhanced the transistor performance, the opposite is true for the interconnects that link these transistors. This talk will address effects of scaling on the performance of conventional contacts and interconnects, and explore alternate contact and interconnect schemes.
