Cutting edge electronics research presented in Linköping

Some of the topics to be discussed at Europe's largest research conference on electronics and circuit design are research on energy-efficient circuits, organic electronics and challenges related to the switch to wireless networks that transmit an mindboggling 1TB per second by 2020.

Between 29 and 31 August, 250 of Europe’s leading researchers in the field of electronics and circuit design will gather for a conference in Linköping. The biannual European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design, (ECCTD), assembles European researchers and is now being held in Sweden for the very first time.

The cutting edge research to be presented includes: Linkoping Professor Magnus Berggren, features a new platform for the development of organic electronics. Prof. Gerhard Fettweis from the Technical University of Dresden, describes how to develop todays wireless networks, that presently can transmit 10 GB/s to 1 TB/s by the year 2020 and which challenges it entails. Another example is Professor Borivoje Nikolic from Berkeley, California, who will be describing the challenges of developing ever more energy-efficient circuits.

Joint hosts for this year's ECCTD are the Department of Electronics , the Department of Electrical Engineering both at Linköping University. Professors Lars Wanhammar and Jerzy Dabrowski will chair the conference.

“We hold a very strong position in Europe with leading research in signal processing, circuit design, and we cover both analogue and digital technology. Now we are both proud and pleased to receive so many leading researchers in Linköping,” says Lars Wanhammar.

ECCTD2011 is held at the Konsert and Kongress in Linköping, 29-31 August.
