This paper presents a method to use floating gate (flash) transistors to implement low power ternary-valued digital circuits targeting handheld and IoT devices. Since the threshold voltage of flash devices can be modified at a fine granularity during programming, our approach has several advantages. For one, speed binning at the factory can be controlled(More)
Floating gate (flash) transistors are used exclusively for memory applications today. These applications include SD cards of various form factors, USB flash drives and SSDs. This paper presents the first approach to use flash transistors to implement binary-valued digital circuits. Since the threshold voltage of flash devices can be modified at a fine(More)
—This paper presents the design and demonstration of a novel die-to-die interconnect system for deployment in system-in-package (SiP) applications with adjacent or stacked-die configurations. The interconnect system consists of miniature coaxial cables that are mounted to a standard Silicon substrate using an etched trench along the perimeter of the die.(More)
The FinFET device has gained much traction in recent VLSI designs. In the FinFET device, the conduction channel is vertical, unlike a traditional bulk MOSFET, in which the conduction channel is planar. This yields several benefits, and as a consequence, it is expected that most VLSI designs will utilize FinFETs from the 20nm node and beyond. Despite the(More)
Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are the implementation platform of choice when it comes to design flexibility. However, the high power consumption of FPGAs (which arises due to their flexible structure), make them less appealing for extreme low power applications. In this paper, we present a design of an FPGA lookup table (LUT), with the goal of(More)
In this paper, we present a circuit-level analysis of deep voltage-scaled FPGAs, which operate from full supply to sub-threshold voltages. The logic as well as the interconnect of the FPGA are modeled at the circuit level, and their relative contribution to the delay, power and energy of the FPGA are studied by means of circuit simulations. Three(More)
Flash transistors serve as the technology of choice for implementing nonvolatile memory. Current flash memory densities are increasing to meet storage demands. One of the key features that has resulted in increasing flash memory densities is the ability to program a flash transistor to have multiple threshold voltages. This feature has recently been(More)
