Abstract

Twenty-first century electronics will be more diverse in terms of technology, less predictable, and more driven by applications. Emerging nano-devices could play an important role, but to identify opportunities, work on materials and devices must be better connected to circuits, systems, and applications. The overarching goal for NEEDS is to promote an “atoms to applications” style of research that will be critical to the success of electronics in the 21 st Century.

NEEDS (Nano-Engineered Electronic Device Simulation) is funded by the National Science Foundation and the Semiconductor Research Corporation and charged to advance device science and connect it to applications. NEEDS consists of teams at Purdue, Berkeley, MIT, and Stanford University. The focus of this five-year initiative is on physics-based compact models, which connect fundamental work to applications. While developing compact models for a broad range of emerging nanodevices, NEEDS is also creating a comprehensive, online resource – a set of compact models, best practices, and processes supported by a suite of tools and educational resources. In the process of developing deeply physical compact models and supporting infrastructure, NEEDS advances the science of nanodevices. The goal is to set the set the stage for application-driven, end-to- end research that addresses important problems with new technologies.

Available below are selected presentations from the fourth annual NEEDS meeting, which was held at Stanford University on May 18-19, 2016. The first presentation is a NEEDS overview presented by lead investigator, Mark Lundstrom.

The meeting agenda is available here.
