With over 9,000 members around the world, the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society focuses on fabricated integrated circuit designs—in contrast to simulated circuits and analyzed models—for all applications using relevant materials and interconnections.
The Society produces the Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC), the most downloaded technical journal in IEEE Xplore®, and sponsors the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the world's premier circuits realization conference.
The roots of the Society go back to the launch of the ISSCC in 1955 and the debut of the JSSC in 1966 as an archive of major presentations from conferences, expanded into journal length papers. Soon afterward, the leadership of the ISSC and JSSC formally became a Council comprised of all IEEE Societies contributing to the field of integrated circuits.
IEEE Societies provide access to current information, opportunities to network with peers, and enhancement of the worldwide value of your profession. IEEE members receive special prices for Society memberships.

IEEE members can take advantage of exclusive and discounted pricing on insurance and a variety of products and services (where available) that can add up to substantial savings.
Professional membership is open to individuals who by experience give evidence of competence in an IEEE designated field. The designated fields are: Engineering, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematics, Technical Communications, Education, Management, and Law and Policy.
A Student/Graduate Student member must carry at least 50% of a normal full-time academic program as a registered undergraduate or graduate student in a regular course of study in IEEE designated fields. The total cumulative period for a member to hold the Student member grade and/or the Graduate Student member grade is limited to eight years.
Professional ... Social ... Humanitarian ...
These three pillars represent the core experiences that make up IEEE membership and the reason that nearly half a million technologists worldwide make IEEE an integral part of their lives. In this video, you will hear first-hand from both long-term and new members about why IEEE is so vital to them.
