Research Opportunities In the Areas of Classical CMOS and Emerging
Dr. Jagdish Prasad
Senior Scientist/AMIS Fellow
The fast pace of MOSFET scaling is accelerating the introduction of new technologies
to extend CMOS beyond 40 nm technology nodes. This acceleration requires
the semiconductor industry to intensify research in two highly challenging
areas simultaneously. One area of research is scaling CMOS well below 90
nm and the other is an exciting opportunity to invent fundamentally new concepts
to signal processing to sustain functional scaling beyond the domain of CMOS.
In this presentation we will discuss research opportunities in the areas
of: 1.classical CMOS, 2.non-classical CMOS structures and memory technologies,
and 3.completely new and revolutionary technological and architectural concepts
for signal processing and information applications. The presentation will
provide an industry perspective on emerging new device technologies and will
serve as a bridge between bulk CMOS and the realm of microelectronics beyond
the end of CMOS scaling.
