  2. Design in the Nanometer Regime: Process Variation

    28 Nov 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Kaushik Roy

    Scaling of technology over the last few decades has produced an exponential growth in computing power of integrated circuits and an unprecedented number of transistors integrated into a single. However, scaling is facing several problems — severe short channel effects, exponential increase in...

  3. Design of CMOS Circuits in the Nanometer Regime: Leakage Tolerance

    28 Nov 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Kaushik Roy

    The scaling of technology has produced exponential growth in transistor development and computing power in the last few decades, but scaling still presents several challenges. These two lectures will cover device aware CMOS design to address power, reliability, and process variations in scaled...

    17 Oct 2006 |

    As CMOS scaling progresses, it is becoming very clear that power dissipation plays a dominant role in limiting how far scaling can go. This talk will briefly describe the various physical effects that arise at the limits of scaling, and will then turn to an analysis of scaling in the presence of...
