Home > Press > Discera CTO Wan-Thai Hsu to Speak at SEMICON West

Abstract:
Discera, Inc., a World Leader in CMOS MEMS resonator technology and provider of next-generation timing solutions, today announced Chief Technology Officer Wan-Thai Hsu will address key issues surrounding the MEMS industry and timing market at SEMICON West, July 18 from 3:40 - 4:00p.m. at the Emerging Technologies and Markets TechXPOT located at the Moscone Center, West Hall, Level 2.

Discera CTO Wan-Thai Hsu to Speak at SEMICON West

SAN JOSE, CA | Posted on June 25th, 2007

Dr. Wan-Thai Hsu, CTO of Discera and EE Times Innovator of the Year, will discuss "The New Heart Beat for Electronics -- MEMS Oscillators." Hsu will talk about the challenges and benefits of MEMS resonators versus quartz for electronics devices. In the talk he will address the issues of performance, size and cost.

SEMICON West is the industry's premier showcase for exciting new technologies. The TechXPOTs, launched in 2006, are where the most cutting-edge trends can be found. TechXPOTs are focused "shows-within-the-show" that feature exhibits, special displays, and live technical presentations on the latest topics and trends in micro- and nanoelectronics manufacturing, markets, and technologies. The Emerging Technologies and Markets TechXPOT will explore the future of electronics manufacturing, reaching into the world of nanotechnology, microsystems (MEMS), and renewable energy (solar and fuel cells).

About Discera, Inc.
Discera is a fabless analog semiconductor company that offers tiny, high performance silicon resonators for the frequency and timing control markets. These resonators act as the heartbeat or pulse for a variety of devices from consumer products such as cameras and MP3 players to specialized equipment for the military. The company's PureSilicon™ resonator technology is a fundamental building block that offers, according to Semico Research, "a better mousetrap" for creating fully integrated, low cost, small form factor wireline and wireless products, such as oscillators, filters, and RF components. Unlike crystal based oscillators, Discera's PureSilicon™ based CMOS oscillators can be integrated into other CMOS-based circuits. Founded in 2001 and headquartered in San Jose, California, Discera is a privately held company with investments from Ardesta, Partech, 3i, Qualcomm Ventures, Horizon Ventures, and Scale Ventures.
