Nanoelectronics: The New Frontier?
0.0 out of 5 stars
26 May 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
After forty years of advances in integrated circuit technology, microelectronics is undergoing a transformation to nanoelectronics. Modern day MOSFETs now have channel lengths of only 50 nm, and...
4.5 out of 5 stars
25 May 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
In non-specialist language, this talk introduces CMOS technology used for modern electronics. Beginning with an explanation of "CMOS," the speaker relates basic system considerations of transistor...
3.0 out of 5 stars
The transistor is the basic element of electronic systems. The integrated circuits inside today's personal computers, cell phones, PDA's, etc., contain hundreds of millions of transistors on a...
Self-Heating and Scaling of Silicon Nano-Transistors
5.0 out of 5 stars
07 Mar 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Pop
The most often cited technological roadblock of nanoscale electronics is the "power problem," i.e. power densities and device temperatures reaching levels that will prevent their reliable...
Exponential Challenges, Exponential Rewards - The Future of Moore's Law
14 Dec 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Shekhar Borkar
Three exponentials have been the foundation of today's electronics, which are often taken for granted—namely transistor density, performance, and energy. Moore's Law captures the impact of...
Electronic Transport in Semiconductors (Introductory Lecture)
26 Aug 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Welcome to the ECE 656 Introductory lecture. The objective of the course is to develop a clear, physical understanding of charge carrier transport in bulk semiconductors and in small semiconductor...
Faster Materials versus Nanoscaled Si and SiGe: A Fork in the Roadmap?
22 Jul 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jerry M. Woodall
Strained Si and SiGe MOSFET technologies face fundamental limits towards the end of this decade when the technology roadmap calls for gate dimensions of 45 nm headed for 22 nm. This fact, and...
Digital Electronics: Fundamental Limits and Future Prospects
13 Apr 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Konstantin K. Likharev
I will review some old and some recent work on the fundamental (and not so fundamental) limits imposed by physics of electron devices on their density and power consumption.
A Personal Quest for Information
13 Apr 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Vwani P. Roychowdhury
This talk will report results and conclusions from my personal investigations into several different disciplines, carried out with the unifying intent of uncovering some of the fundamental...
Nanoelectronics and the Future of Microelectronics
12 Apr 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
Progress in silicon technology continues to outpace the historic pace of Moore's Law, but the end of device scaling now seems to be only 10-15 years away. As a result, there is intense interest in...
Electronic Transport in Semi-conducting Carbon Nanotube Transistor Devices
12 Apr 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joerg Appenzeller
Recent demonstrations of high performance carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFETs) highlight their potential for a future nanotube-based electronics. Besides being just a nanometer in...
Quantum-dot Cellular Automata
12 Apr 2004 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Craig S. Lent
The multiple challenges presented by the problem of scaling transistor sizes are all related to the fact that transistors encode binary information by the state of a current switch. What is...
