From the Director

On behalf of the New York State Center of Excellence in Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging at Binghamton University, I welcome you to our center and encourage you to take this opportunity to learn more about our expertise, resources, and infrastructure.

The nation is increasing its reliance on the development on higher performance electronics in increasingly smaller packages. Component miniaturization, thermal management, energy optimization, and energy harvesting and storage technologies are becoming significant factors in the design of these devices and have created the need for leading edge research on packaging and integration for these new small scale systems. S3IP is a critical participant in advancing these technologies and in training the essential educated work force.

Our vision, to create people friendly electronics, is enabled through our partnerships with government, academia and industry, which provide unique opportunities for collaboration to advance the frontiers of microelectronics research and development.S3IP brings together the resources of several organized research initiatives including:the Integrated Electronics Engineering Center (IEEC), a New York State of Advanced Technology, known for leading edge research in electronics packaging; the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center in Energy-Smart Electronic Systems (ES2), developing new dynamic, predictive, and synergistic energy optimization and thermal management design criteria enabling U.S. data centers and electronic systems to operate efficiently and securely; the Center for Autonomous Solar Power (CASP), focused on new energy production and storage technologies; and the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM), a national microelectronics R&D center demonstrating the feasibility of roll-to-roll flexible electronics manufacturing. 

We look forward to collaborating with you to advance microelectronics in New York State.
