IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems

21 - 24 January 2024
San Antonio, Texas, USA

IEEE Topical Meetings on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems have been at the forefront of moving Silicon technologies into microwave, millimeter-wave and THz applications – a development now widely accepted, and of great importance. RF CMOS and Si/SiGe BiCMOS technologies are well established in commercial and defense applications.

SiRF2024 will mark the 24th topical meeting on SiRF, with a renewed emphasis on promoting a dialogue between IC designers and researchers promoting non-standard technologies, exploiting the maturity of Silicon processes, but addressing the challenges of tomorrow. The three days of SiRF2024 will chronicle recent advances in our dynamic field, and provide the platform for developing new ideas, and candid exchange, facilitated by SiRF’s single-session format. As in past years, a line-up of reputed invited speakers will stimulate our discussions, with an emphasis on emerging technologies.
