On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
5.0 out of 5 stars
03 Oct 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In 1930s Bell Labs scientists chose to focus on Siand Ge, rather than better known semiconductors like Ag2S and Cu2S, mostly because of their reliable performance. Their choice was rewarded with...
Modeling and Simulation of Sub-Micron Thermal Transport
0.0 out of 5 stars
27 Sep 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jayathi Murthy
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in understanding thermal phenomena at the sub-micron scale. Applications include the thermal performance of microelectronic devices,...
Moore's Law Forever?
10 Aug 2005 | Online Presentations | 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...
Nanoelectronics: The New Frontier?
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...
2005 Molecular Conduction and Sensors Workshop
25 May 2005 | Workshops
This is the 3rd in a series of annual workshops on Molecular Conduction. The prior workshops have been at Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN (2003) and Nothwestern University, Evanston, IL...
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...
2.0 out of 5 stars
15 May 2005 | Tools | Contributor(s): Connor S. Rafferty, kent smith, Yang Liu, Derrick Kearney, Steven Clark
Framework for solving systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) in time and 1, 2, or 3 space dimensions
MATLAB Scripts for "Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor"
15 Mar 2005 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Tinker with quantum transport models! Download the MATLAB scripts used to demonstrate the physics described in Supriyo Datta's book Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor. These simple models are...
Self-Heating and Scaling of Silicon Nano-Transistors
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...
NanoMOS 2.5 Source Code Download
22 Feb 2005 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Zhibin Ren, Sebastien Goasguen
NanoMOS is a 2-D simulator for thin body (less than 5 nm), fully depleted, double-gated n-MOSFETs. A choice of five transport models is available (drift-diffusion, classical ballistic, energy...
Curriculum on Nanotechnology
27 Jan 2005 | Courses
To exploit the opportunities that nanoscience is giving us, engineers will need to learn how to think about materials, devices, circuits, and systems in new ways. The NCN seeks to bring the new...
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...
