Call For Papers

The 17th IEEE International Symposium on the Physical and Failure Analysis of Integrated Circuits (IPFA 2010) is organized by the IEEE Reliability/CPMT/ED Singapore Chapter. The Symposium is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Electron Device Society and IEEE Reliability Society.

IPFA 2010 will be devoted to the fundamental understanding of the physical mechanisms of semiconductor device failures and issues related to semiconductor device reliability and yield, especially those related to advanced process technologies. The Technical Program Committee is inviting papers related, but not limited to, the following areas:
