Implementing new operating systems is tedious, costly, and often impractical except for large projects. The Flux OSKit addresses this problem in a novel way by providing clean, well-documented OS components designed to be reused in a wide variety of other environments , rather than defining a new OS structure. The OSKit uses unconventional techniques to(More)
Now completing its first year, the High-Performance Knowledge Bases Project promotes technology for developing very large, flexible, and reusable knowledge bases. The project is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and includes more than 15 contractors in universities , research laboratories, and companies. The evaluation of the(More)
Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFETs) can potentially provide significant energy-delay-product benefits compared to silicon CMOS. However, CNFET circuits are subject to several sources of imperfections. These imperfections lead to incorrect logic functionality and substantial circuit performance variations. Processing techniques alone are(More)
Carbon-nanotube (CNT) field-effect transistors (CNFETs) are promising extensions to silicon CMOS. Simulations show that CNFET inverters fabricated with a perfect CNFET technology have 13 times better energy delay product compared with 32-nm silicon CMOS inverters. The following two fundamental challenges prevent the fabrication of CNFET circuits with the(More)
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are grown using chemical synthesis, and the exact positioning and chirality of CNTs are very difficult to control. As a result, "small-width" Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFETs) can have a high probability of containing no semiconducting CNTs, resulting in CNFET failures. Upsizing these vulnerable small-width CNFETs is(More)
Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFETs) show promise as extensions to silicon-CMOS. Ideal CNFET circuits can potentially provide 20X Energy-Delay-Product benefits over silicon-CMOS at the 16 nm technology node. However, several challenges must be overcome before such performance benefits can be experimentally realized. In this paper, we present a(More)
Carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFETs) are excellent candidates for building highly energy-efficient electronic systems of the future. Fundamental limitations inherent to carbon nanotubes (CNTs) pose major obstacles to the realization of robust CNFET digital very large-scale integration (VLSI): 1) it is nearly impossible to guarantee perfect(More)
Massive aligned carbon nanotubes hold great potential but also face significant integration/assembly challenges for future beyond-silicon nanoelectronics. We report a wafer-scale processing of aligned nanotube devices and integrated circuits, including progress on essential technological components such as wafer-scale synthesis of aligned nanotubes,(More)
