The IEEE Milestones program is a program of the IEEE History Committee, administered through the IEEE History Center, that honors significant technical achievements in all areas associated with IEEE. Milestones recognize the technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity found in unique products, services, seminal papers, and patents.
On May 18, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. (CET), a ceremony will be held in Agrate, at the site of STMicroelectronics, for celebrating the Milestone “Multiple Silicon Technology on a Chip, 1985”, with the citation:
“SGS (now STMicroelectronics) pioneered the super-integrated silicon-gate process combining Bipolar, CMOS, and DMOS (BCD) transistors in single chips for complex, power-demanding applications. The first BCD super-integrated circuit, named L6202, was capable of controlling up to 60V-5A at 300 kHz. Subsequent automotive, computer, and industrial applications extensively adopted this process technology, which enabled chip designers flexibly and reliably to combine power, analog, and digital signal processing.”
The event program and further information for connecting online and participating in the ceremony will be soon available on this site.
