2nd MOS-AK India Conference, Feb 25-27, 2019 - Summary

Daniel Payne

2019 IEEE International Conference on Modeling of Systems Circuits and Devices
Organised by Joint Chapter of CAS /ED Societies, IEEE Hyderabad Section
2nd MOS-AK India Conference (IEEE Conference #45395)
Venue: IIT Hyderabad February 25-27, 2019

The MOS-AK Compact Modeling Association, a global standardization forum for semiconductor device models, held its consecutive 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 between February 25-27, 2019 at the IIT Hyderabad. The 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 is the results of join, collaborative effort. The conference organization would not be possible without direct involvements and financial support provided directly by Collage and IIT Hyderabad as well as the MOS-AK distinguished industrial sponsors including: ams semiconductors, Rhode and Schwarz, Keysight, Synergy, Synopsys, Xilinx and SCL. The MOS-AK India Conference has also drawn attention of the Joint Chapter of the CAS and EDS Societies of the IEEE Hyderabad Section which provided direct technical program cosponsorship. The Indian Electronic Semiconductor Association (IESA) as well as Swissnex India have provide pronounced dissemination support.

Inauguration session of 2nd International IEEE MOS-AK India Conference 2019 has been chaired by Prof. Mohammed Arifuddin Sohel, MJ College Hyderabad, who welcomed all MOS-AK participants and invited prominent guests Surinder Singh, Director, SCL; Sebasties Hug, CEO and Consul General of Swissnex; Sumohan Chenapayya, Dean R&D, IIT Hyderabad; V. Hanuma Sai, Director, ams semiconductors India Pvt. Ltd.; N. Venkatesh, Chair, IEEE Hyderabad Section; Wladek Grabinski, MOS AK (EU); P.A. Govindacharyulu, General Co Chair, MOS AK India 2019 to open the 2nd MOS-AK/India Conference.

The MOS-AK India Conference program has been organized as three days scientific R&D event covering recent advances into the technology TCAD simulations, compact/SPICE modeling as well as the device level analog/RF and digital IC designs. The internationally renowned academic and industrial speakers and presenters have delivered 4 tutorial lectures [1-4], 7 keynote talks [5-11], 2 plenary talks [12-13] as well as 22 regular research papers. The MOS-AK Association is an open research forum adequately supporting all R&D activities. An open panel discussion was organized to review challenges and opportunities for women in engineering (WIE) [14]. The MOS-AK speakers shared their latest perspectives on compact/SPICE modeling and Verilog-A standardization in response to the dynamically evolving semiconductor industry and academic R&D efforts. The event featured advanced technical presentations covering compact model development, implementation, and deployment. Presented original unpublished works in all the topics related to the compact/SPICE modeling and its Verilog-A standardization will be submitted for further publication. The conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE Explore. Best MOS-AK/India papers has been selected and awarded: Gold leaf [15], Silver leaf [16] and Bronze leaf [17] certificates, accordingly. Highest ranked paper authors from regular submission will be invited to extend their R&D contribution in the form of a book chapters in a book titled "Compact Modeling: Technology, Devices, IC Design" by River Publishers, the technical program promoter of MOS-AK/India 2019 Conference. These R&D topics have also received attention of local media and press [18-21]. For more information about each of the R&D contributions, go online to 2nd MOS-AK/India Conference

The MOS-AK Association plans to continue its standardization efforts by organizing future compact modeling meetings, workshops and courses arround the globe thru 2019 year, including:

About MOS-AK Association:
MOS-AK, an international compact modeling association primarily focused in Europe, to enable international compact modeling R&D exchange in the North/Latin Americas, EMEA and Asia/Pacific Regions. The MOS-AK Modeling Working Group plays a central role in developing a common information exchange system among foundries, CAD vendors, IC designers and model developers by contributing and promoting different elements of compact/SPICE modeling and its Verilog-A standardization and related CAD/EDA tools including FOSS for the compact/SPICE models development, validation/implementation and distribution.
