Silicon chips in personal electronics and computers, electronic displays, and the semiconductor lasers used in CD players and for Internet communications, have shaped the world we live in, but will the current paradigm that has driven progress for the past 50+ years continue, or will the 21st Century be a new era of electronics? These questions will be addressed in a seminar by Dr. Dennis Buss of Texas Instruments followed by a panel discussion with Purdue faculty.

Moderator: Tim Fisher, James G. Dwyer Professor Of Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University.
Panel: Professors M.A. Alam, Supriyo Datta, Joerg Appenzeller, Gerhard Klimeck, and Mark Lundstrom.

  1. Microelectronics in Transition

    18 Oct 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Dennis Buss

    For the past 40 years, the semiconductor industry has been dominated by Moore’s Law scaling of CMOS. However, CMOS scaling will end in this decade. The Era of Moore’s Law scaling will give way to the Era of Accelerated Technology Innovation (ATI).
