A study of asynchronous design methodology for robust CMOS-nano hybrid system design
Rajat Subhra Chakraborty, Swarup Bhunia
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/1568485.1568486

Among the emerging alternatives to CMOS, molecular electronics based diode-resistor crossbar fabric has generated considerable interest in recent times. Logic circuit design with future nano-scale molecular devices using dense and regular crossbar...

A hybrid Nano/CMOS dynamically reconfigurable system—Part II: Design optimization flow
Wei Zhang, Niraj K. Jha, Li Shang
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1568485.1568487

In Part I of this work, a hybrid nano/CMOS reconfigurable architecture, called NATURE, was described. It is composed of CMOS reconfigurable logic and interconnect fabric, and nonvolatile nano on-chip memory. Through its support for cycle-by-cycle...

A hybrid nano-CMOS architecture for defect and fault tolerance
Muzaffer O. Simsir, Srihari Cadambi, Franjo Ivančić, Martin Roetteler, Niraj K. Jha
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1568485.1568488

As the end of the semiconductor roadmap for CMOS approaches, architectures based on nanoscale molecular devices are attracting attention. Among several alternatives, silicon nanowires and carbon nanotubes are the two most promising...

Utilizing quantum dot transistors with programmable threshold voltages for low-power mobile computing
Shuo Wang, Jianwei Dai, El-Sayed Hasaneen, Lei Wang, Faquir Jain
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/1568485.1568489

Power consumption poses one of the fundamental barriers for deploying mobile computing devices in energy-constrained situations with varying operation conditions. In particular, leakage power is projected to increase exponentially in future...
