Austrochip is an annual meeting and platform to present the latest activities in the field of microelectronics and integrated circuits in Austria and neighboring countries. The workshop is a forum for discussion and contact between academia and industry.

Austrochip deals with the design of analog, digital, and mixed-signal integrated circuits and systems. Submissions of original research papers to the workshop should cover, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Analog, mixed-signal, and RF integrated circuits
  • Digital circuits, filters, DSPs, asynchronous designs
  • FPGA design and reconfigurable hardware
  • Design methodology, system-level design, gigascale circuits, network-on-chip
  • Embedded systems, low-power designs, RF systems, security aspects
  • Verification and testing, signal integrity, device modelling, timing analysis, reliability simulation
  • Emerging technologies, nano CMOS process, sub-threshold circuits, sensors, organic and biomedical electronics
  • Case studies and prototyping

This year’s edition

The 29th edition of Austrochip 2021 will take place in Linz, Austria on October 14th. Austrochip 2021 will be organized by the Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIC) of Johannes Kepler University Linz.
