ASQED Microelectronic Olympiad
The collocated ASQED Microelectronic Olympiad, sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design and Synopsys, is an educational contest intended to spotlight young engineers and engineering students active in the field of microelectronics. The Olympiad consists of a written test covering a variety of topics related to digital and analog circuit design. The competition takes place on July 9th before ASQED. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 11 during ASQED.
To participate in the Microelectronics Olympiad, please register at http://microelectronic_olympiad.eventbrite.com/
ASQED plays a critical role in promoting quality-based electronic design and manufacturing in Asia and is an integral part of establishing a communication link between semiconductor, nano-electronic, bio-electronic, MEMS (microelectromechanical) and NEMS (nanoelectromechanical) systems, and photovoltaic (PV) technologies and disciplines such as design, manufacturing, test and packaging.
Several IEEE societies sponsors the event, and conference proceedings are published on IEEE Xplore. ASQED is organized and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design.
