Attending ICM 2016 Conference


Gladly, The Eighth International Conference on Microelectronics [ICM]  was organized by Nile University in collaboration with several leading institutions in the field of microelectronics in Egypt and abroad, including Waterloo University; the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Montreal, including IEEE Region 8, Circuits and systems society (CASS).

The conference is also attended by the 28th International Conference on Microelectronics, organized by Nile University in cooperation and partnership with several leading institutions. Experts and specialists from more than 17 countries.

Over the years, microelectronics industry has played significant role in shaping the features of technology, on all bases. Medical devices, smart phones, computers many other applications, they all include different shape of microelectronics.

The conference aims to make Egypt a center and a regional and international center for the African, Arab and European markets for the design and manufacture of advanced electronics before the end of 2030.

During the conference, researchers had the chance to present their most recent work, also the undergraduate students had the chance to see the ray of light and hope in the future to believe in their country.

Dr. Tarek Khalil, President of Nile University, said that the participants in the conference address topics of high importance, including the electronic circuits and systems, the strengthening of micro-systems of energy cells, talk about the strategy related to the design and manufacture of electronics and the supportive programs for building Real Electronics Industry. And he also said that Egypt is economically dependent on adopting the electronics industry.

Dr. Ahmed Madian, Director of Microelectronics Program at Nile University, confirmed that the international conference organized by the university in the field of microelectronics provides a picture of the most important new fields and innovative research in the world for young engineers in Egypt. Experts and experts from more than 17 countries have attended the conference.

Here is the link of a TV interview for Dr. Ahmed Madian.

One of the attendees wrote brilliant article about his experience in attending such conference. He saw that,

“The importance of this conference was never about the quality of papers presented in it, but it mainly indicated the features of the microelectronics industry in Egypt. Egypt already is taking serious steps toward that. What was so impressive about the conference was the serious attempts to draw the flowline of the future of electronics industry in Egypt, ICM 2016 was not only an academic conference, it was a club and community of those who breathe electronics.”

Here are some of what was published about the organization of the Nile University the 28th international conference in the field of electronics:










The best paper on MOCAST conference:

The NISC team wins the best paper on the International Conference on Modern Circuits and Systems Technologies (MOCAST) in 2017.
This paper proposes a hardware platform implementation on FPGA for modelling two fractional-order derivative operators. The Grünwald-Letnikov and Caputo definitions are realized for different fractional orders. The realization is based on non-uniform segmentation algorithm with a variable lookup table. A generic implementation for Grünwald-Letnikov is proposed and a Fixed Point Booth multiplier radix-4 is used for Caputo implementation. Carry look-ahead adder, multi-operand adder and booth multiplier are used to improve the performance and other techniques for area and delay minimization have been employed. A comparison between the two presented architectures is introduced. The proposed designs have been simulated using Xilinx ISE and realized on FPGA Xilinx virtex-5 XC5VLX50T.

Fruit electric analyzer device

This device has the ability to detect if the fruit is Carcinogenic or not, analysis the sugar percentage in the fruit and know if the fruit is fresh or frozen. It will have a huge benefit impact in the customer sales process, the farmer to get a specific agricultural calibration and the customs Authority to have a quick decision related to passing the freight or not within few minutes.

What is this device?

It used as alternative usage of the chemical analyzer which is costly and takes much time. This device depends on detecting the fluid percentage inside the fruit respected to the difference in their resistance. It is consider as a transmitter and receiver that sends signal from one fruit side and receives it from the opposite side to transmit it again by a wireless module to the computer for analyzing the computer software will compare the data received with database specialized for each kind of fruit and takes the decisions.

How will it  be used in the nearest future?

It will be a small device that works beside the smart phone that has a software application. The customer will choose which kind of the fruit wanted and set which process required to be detected such as the Carcinogenic or not , fresh or frozen , knowing percentage of the sugar and so on.
