New Dimension in Performance: Harnessing 3D Integration Technology
29 Nov 2007   Contributor(s):: Kerry Bernstein
Despite generation on generation of scaling, computer chips have remained essentially 2dimensional. Improvements in onchip wire delay, and in the total number of inputs and outputs has not been able to keep up with improvements to the transistor, and its getting harder and harder to hide it!...

Introduction to nanoMOS
02 Jul 2007   Contributor(s):: James K Fodor, Jing Guo
This learning module introduces nanoHUB users to the nanoMOS simulator. A brief introduction to nanoMOS is presented, followed by voiced presentations featuring the simulator in action. Upon completion of this module, users should be able to use this simulator to gain valuable insight into the...
