SAN FRANCISCO -- After filing several thousand words on the innovations and innovators at the International Solid State Circuits Conference this week, we wanted to provide a few visuals from the annual event that drew nearly 3,000 chip designers. ISSCC hosted 211 papers in 28 sessions, two days of tutorials and a handful of evening sessions exploring hot technology topics.
Most of our pictures were drawn from a new Industry Demonstration Session at ISSCC. The Tuesday afternoon event gathered the authors of a baker's dozen papers to demo real-life applications of the advances in silicon they described.
