The analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is an essential part of system-on-chip (SoC) products because it bridges the gap between the analog physical world and the digital logical world. In the digital domain, low power and low voltage requirements are becoming more important issues as the channel length of MOSFET shrinks below 0.25 sub-micron values.(More)
— This paper presents ferroelectric single-electron transistors (SETs) with tunable tunnel barriers and their application in a reconfigurable binary decision diagram (BDD) logic architecture. In this experimental demonstration, the SETs can be programmed into short, open, and Coulomb blockade modes to construct the BDD fabric. We experimentally demonstrate(More)
Strongly correlated phases exhibit collective carrier dynamics that if properly harnessed can enable novel functionalities and applications. In this article, we investigate the phenomenon of electrical oscillations in a prototypical MIT system, vanadium dioxide (VO 2). We show that the key to such oscillatory behaviour is the ability to induce and stabilize(More)
—We compare the transient response of double-gate thin-body-silicon interband tunnel field-effect transistor (TFET) with its metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor counterpart. Due to the presence of source side tunneling barrier, the silicon TFETs exhibit enhanced Miller capacitance, resulting in large voltage overshoot/undershoot in its(More)
Integrated circuits and electronic systems, as well as design technologies, are evolving at a great rate—both quantitatively and qualitatively. Major developments include new interconnects and switching devices with atomic-scale uncertainty, the depth and scale of on-chip integration, electronic system-level integration, the increasing significance of(More)
Complete system simulation to understand the influence of architecture and operating systems on application execution has been identified to be crucial for systems design. This problem is particularly interesting in the context of Java since it is not only the application that can invoke kernel services, but so does the underlying Java Virtual Machine (JVM)(More)
III-V Tunnel FETs (TFET) possess unique characteristics such as steep slope switching, high gm/IDS, uni-directional conduction, and low voltage operating capability. These characteristics have the potential to result in energy savings in both digital and analog applications. In this paper, we provide an overview of the power efficient properties of III-V(More)
