OBip: Open Bipolar Workshop at BCTM in Bordeaux

Open Workshop on European Bipolar related projects: 
Abstract: In Europe, a huge effort is actually undertaken to strengthen Europe's leading edge position in SiGe HBT technology and modeling as well as SiGe enabled mm-wave applications thanks to two European projects that are: DOTSEVEN which aims to achieve HBTs with cut-off frequencies (fmax) of around 700 GHz and RF2THz which aims at the establishment of a 300mm BiCMOS Silicon technology platform for emerging RF, mm-wave and THz consumer applications, as well as Si photonics integration. During this common workshop the main achievements of these projects will be presented.
