The future of integrated electronics is the future of electronics itself. The advantages of integration will bring about a proliferation of electronics, pushing this science into many new areas. Integrated circuits will lead to such wonders as home computers—or at least terminals connected to a central computer—automatic controls for automobiles, and personal portable communications equipment. The electronic wristwatch needs only a display to be feasible today. But the biggest potential lies in…

Power, Interconnect, and Reliability Techniques for Large Scale Integrated Circuits

3D-stacking technology coupled with near-threshold computing (NTC) is used to address heat dissipation and system yield, and stochastic computing is proposed as an error-tolerant form of computation for advanced VLSI processes.

Packaging for Electronic Systems

Micro- or nano-opto-electro-mechanical systems (NOEMS, MOEMS or simply nano- or microsystems) are systems comprising electronic devices, circuits and components designed to accomplish certain complex functions.

A thin-film microprocessor with inkjet print-programmable memory

This work presents an 8-bit thin-film microprocessor with a write-once, read-many (WORM) instruction generator that can be programmed after manufacture via inkjet printing, enabling low-cost flexible electronics.

The Invention of the Integrated Circuit and the Birth of Silicon Valley

The invention of the integrated circuit allowed many transistors to be combined on a single chip, and it was another revolution in computing. The integrated circuit placed the previously separated

The Future of Computer Technology and its Implications for the Computer Industry

If computers are to benefit from future advances in technology then there are major challenges ahead, involving understanding how to build reliable systems on increasingly unreliable technology and how to exploit parallelism increasingly effective, not only to improve performance, but also to mask the consequences of component failure.

Networks on Chips: Scalable interconnects for future systems on chips

This tutorial will try to highlight a new design paradigm that has been proposed to counter the inefficiency of buses in future SoCs, and show how this paradigm shift from ordinary buses to networks on chips can make the kind of SoCs mentioned above very much possible.

Design of a reconfigurable optical microprocessor for smart-pixel applications

This project incorporates an instruction fetch unit (IFU), that fetches the instructions from an external host computer, and a 2D-array of one-bit smart pixels called the processing element (PE).

Improving packaging and increasing the level of integration in power electronics
