Abstract or Description
As the dominating CMOS technology is fast approaching a “brick wall,” new opportunities arise for competing solutions. Nanoelectronics has achieved several breakthroughs lately and promises to overcome many of the limitations intrinsic to current semiconductor approaches. Most of the results in this area reported until now focus on devices and interconnect; this work goes several steps further and presents issues related to circuits and architecture. Based on proposed nanoscale interconnect and device structures, we explore the design space available to the nanoelectronic circuit designer and system architect.
