Integrated droplet routing and defect tolerance in the synthesis of digital microfluidic biochips
Tao Xu, Krishnendu Chakrabarty
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/1389089.1389091

Microfluidic biochips are revolutionizing high-throughput DNA sequencing, immunoassays, and clinical diagnostics. As high-throughput bioassays are mapped to digital microfluidic platforms, the need for design automation techniques is being...

Reliability analysis for flexible electronics: Case study of integrated a-Si:H TFT scan driver
Tsung-Ching Huang, Kwang-Ting (Tim) Cheng, Huai-Yuan Tseng, Chen-Pang Kung
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/1389089.1389092

Flexible electronics fabricated on thin-film, lightweight, and bendable substrates (e.g., plastic) have great potential for novel applications in consumer electronics such as flexible displays, e-paper, and smart labels; however, the key elements,...

An alternate design paradigm for low-power, low-cost, testable hybrid systems using scaled LTPS TFTs
Jing Li, Aditya Bansal, Swarop Ghosh, Kaushik Roy
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1389089.1389093

This article presents a holistic hybrid design methodology for low-power, low-cost, testable digital designs using low-temperature polycrystalline-silicon thin-film transistors (LTPS TFTs). An alternate scaling rule under low thermal budget (due...

SCT: A novel approach for testing and configuring nanoscale devices
Reza Rad, Mohammad Tehranipoor
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1389089.1389094

Novel strategies are necessary to efficiently test and configure emerging reconfigurable nanoscale devices, in addition to providing defect tolerance. This is mainly due to the high defect densities that are expected for these devices. Among...
