Paper Abstract

The major electronic applications of the coming decades and the technology that would make those applications possible are an important subject of discussion for industry and academia. Usefully employing gigantic scale of integration and working around the end of scaling underlie this subject, and in practice, the biggest challenge this faces is in control of power, designability, efficient interconnectivity, and reproducibility in a general purpose technology with provides a useful function. In this talk, I will use speculative examples, establish the practical issues in pursuing the examples, and then discuss from group’s work devices (back-plane and nano-scale), circuits (configurable and power-aware), technologies (three-dimensional), and architectures (configurable) that offer a fruitful direction.
