IEEE OC SSCS Chair, Farhad Mafie, 

With over 9,000 members around the world,  the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society focuses on fabricated integrated circuit designs —  in contrast to simulated circuits and analyzed models–  for all applications using relevant materials and interconnections.

The Society produces  the Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC),  the most downloaded technical journal in IEEE Xplore, and sponsors the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the world’s premier circuits realization conference.

 The roots of the Society go back to the launch of the ISSCC in 1955, and the debut of the JSSC in 1966 as an archive of major presentations from conferences, expanded into journal length papers. Soon afterward,  the leadership of the ISSC and JSSC formally became a Council comprised of all IEEE societies contributing to the field of integrated circuits.

 As the field grew in the 1980s, two more solid-state circuits conferences were launched  —  the VLSI Symposia, a sister conference with the Electron Devices Society, and the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC).  In addition, the Council established a signficant  relationship with the European Solid-State Device Electronics Conference and the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC/ESSDERC).

To gain more control over its own work, the Council became the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society in 1997. SSCS established the Asian Solid-Solid State Circuits Conference (ASSCC) in 2003 and the Solid-State Circuits Magazine in 2009.

Today SSCS is a patron member of six IEEE Councils to leverage interdisciplinary technologies. Please visit for more information regarding the society benefits.
