Moore's Law Forever?
13 Jul 2005   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
This talk covers the big technological changes in the 20th and 21st century that were correctly predicted by Gordon Moore in 1965. Moore's Law states that the number of transistors on a silicon chip doubles every technology generation. In 1960s terms that meant every 12 months and currently this...

Nanodevices: A Bottomup View
13 Jun 2005   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
It is common to differentiate between two ways of building a nanodevice: a topdown approach where we start from something big and chisel out what we want and a bottomup approach where we start from something small like atoms or molecules and assemble what we want.

Nanoelectronics: The New Frontier?
18 Apr 2005   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 billion transistor logic chips have arrived. Moore’s Law continues, but the end of MOSFET scaling is...

CMOS Nanotechnology
07 Jul 2004   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
In nonspecialist language, this talk introduces CMOS technology used for modern electronics. Beginning with an explanation of "CMOS," the speaker relates basic system considerations of transistor design and identifies future challenges for CMOS electronics. Anyone with an elementary...
