Electronics beyond CMOS

Panel Chair:

Kazuhiko Matsumoto
Professor, Vice Director of ISIR, University of Osaka, Japan

CMOS microelectronic circuits form the basis for Information and Communication Technology - the major driving force for innovation in almost all industrial sectors. It has significantly shaped the world we live in today.
As we are approaching physical boundaries the CMOS technology roadmap will saturate. This panel targets breakthroughs in promising technologies to complement today’s predominant CMOS technology, possibly extending Moore’s Law way beyond pure CMOS. International specialists will discuss how new materials can address scalability, reliability, and power consumption in comparison to silicon based CMOS. As a consequence these investigations also create the challenge for finding novel integration concepts of homogeneous and heterogeneous chip architectures to improve system performance and efficiency while complementing CMOS.

Title: Single charge electronics & stochastic resonance
Abstract: This talk shows the real merit of nano size of nanocarbon material by using the feature of electric field concentration effect which enable 10~100times low power consumption and single charge treatment becomes possible even at room temperature. These features overcome the limit of the present Flash memory.
The parallel mulch channel of nanocarbon with various threshold voltages enhances the “stochastic resonance effect” normally used in creature and improves the S/N ratio even in the noise circumstances. This may become another new “beyond CMOS” application.

Vice President, IBM, Canada

Title: The search for the next Switch
Abstract: Can Moore’s law continue? The Economic and Technical Challenges to Cmos Scaling and the search for the next Switch. What are the Key issues on the Roadmap and what are some of the possible solutions over the next 10 to 15 years?


Leon Chua
Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley, USA and Affiliated Distinguished Professor Technische Universität München, Germany

Title: Memristor Brains
Abstract: This talk shows that the memristor is much more than a nano replacement for Flash memories and DRAMs, but even more so as an enabling technology for designing brainlike machines that could someday outperform the human brain on executing complex tasks requiring superior intelligence.


Laurent Malier
CEO, CEA Leti, France

Title: Beyond CMOS and new functions
Abstract: CMOS limitations have been addressed with regular success over the last decades. Since last years, an important path for overcoming these limitations has been to introduce innovative materials, which literally opened the era of "Beyond CMOS".
New major innovations are under introduction for complementing traditional CMOS : 3D integration, integrated silicon photonics, ... ; these will be detailed. Beyond them, alternative materials are being explored for improving the characteristics of transistor channel. Another driver for new functions on CMOS will be biomedical applications; examples of such approaches will be illustrated.
