Keynote Speaker 1: Professor Muhammad Mustafa Hussain
Keynote Topic: Anomalous Mechanical Deformation – New Variable in Reliability for Flexible and Stretchable CMOS Electronics
We are embarking on a future where ubiquitous electronics are deployable anywhere and seamlessly connectivity will be a reality. One of the key aspects of such electronics will be physical flexibility and stretchability. Since conventional complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) electronics are physically rigid, being physically flexible and stretchable make them subjected to uncertain electrical performance and reliability due to anomalous mechanical deformations. In this talk, therefore I will be sharing some of my perspectives and learnings on such events as they offer new dimension and insights to design reliable physically flexible and stretchable CMOS electronic devices for the future.
Bio: Mustafa (PhD, ECE, UT Austin, Dec 2005) is a Professor of EECS, UC Berkeley. He was a Founding Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, KAUST from 2009 to 2020.
