  • RFIC Compendium Update
co sponsored sscs publications
Co-sponsored SSCS Publications

For the past several years:

  • Trans. on VLSI Systems (w. CASS, CS)
  • Trans. on Display Technology (w. Photonics)
  • Trans. on Semiconductor Manufacturing (w. CPMT )

Beginning early 2012:

4. D&T Magazine (w. CASS, CEDA)


  • Want to begin (in February) an explicit semi-annual reporting protocol to this committee via SSCS representatives, particularly journals 1, 2, 3 above.
  • Need your help in identifying the best technical SSCS representation for 1, 2, and 3.

design and test magazine
Design and Test Magazine
  • Opportunity – SSCS has been asked if it would like to be an equal financial+technical sponsor (w/ CASS + CEDA) of the IEEE Design and Test of Computers Magazine.
  • IEEE Computer Society wants to drop its sponsorship of the Magazine due to budget constraints;
  • Past annual operating budget = $63K/yrloss total
    • $21K annual loss for each of 3 sponsor societies
    • Gross Annual Income = 140K
    • Expenses can be reduced: CS Press infrastructure charge, + others …
  • 85 papers/year; 6 issues/year
  • 80K Xplore downloads/yr
  • Subscriptions: 755 (2009/2010)
design and test magazine1

  • SSCS Vision: Expand Scope to include RF, mixed signal, analog test through special issue mechanism.
  • SSCS Vision: Title change: “Design and Test of Computers” to “Design and Test _____”.
  • Jan. 2012 handoff from Computer Society.

  • Feb. Motion: To proceed via Task Force participation in creation of an MOU, Scope, Editorial Board and Budget of the newly defined “Design and Test Magazine”.
  • Update: Task Force has been created:
      • Irith Pomeranz (CASS)
      • Rajesh Gupta (CEDA)
      • Glenn Gulak (SSCS)
      • Yervant Zorian (TTTC)
    • First teleconference was July 29th and will occur monthly thereafter until January CS handover.
design and test magazine3

  • Feb. Motion: To conditionally approve a budget of up to $30K / year for the “Design and Test Magazine”, conditioned on the equal participation of CASS and CEDA, and on a jointly signed MOU.
  • Update: MOU was signed June 25 at IEEE TAB meeting in Bellevue, WA.

  • Projected 3yr budget (2012-2014) shows:
