CS International shines in its new location

Brussels proves a great new venue, as more than 420 flock to the co-located CS International and PIC International Conference

A switch of venue proved a great success for the CS International Conference, with over 420 delegates and nearly 50 sponsors descending on Brussels earlier this week.


Held in the Sheraton Airport Hotel on Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 March, CS International took on a new dimension, thanks to its twinning with the inaugural and highly successful PIC International.

Now in its sixth year, CS International continues to go from strength to strength, with a diverse line-up of speakers delivering key insights into the various sectors within the compound semiconductor industry.

Highlights of the latest conference included: compelling arguments over the need for 5G, and the lack of standards for it; the tremendous advances in III-V MOSFET technologies that could maintain the march of Moore's Law; advances in wide bandgap devices for power electronics, and breakthroughs in the characterisation of these classes of materials and related devices; and a frank discussion of the market for III-V cells, which is dominated by deployments in space.

During the lunch and coffee breaks in a packed exhibition hall, delegates learnt of the latest developments by toolmakers and material suppliers, while mingling with attendees and exhibitors from the PIC International Conference.

This parallel-running conference on photonic integrated circuits got off to a great start, with speakers talking to a large, enthusiastic audience. Topics covered included the role of the foundry, strategies for success in the datacomms and optical network markets, and a discussion surrounding the best approach for uniting the laser with the rest of the chip.

More in-depth coverage of both conferences will be provided in the April&May issue of Compound Semiconductor magazine, and the launch edition of PIC magazine. The April&May issue of Compound Semiconductor magazine will also contain details of the winners of the coveted CS Industry Awards.
