Placement optimization of flexible TFT circuits with mechanical strain and temperature consideration
Jiun-Li Lin, Po-Hsun Wu, Tsung-Yi Ho
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2629497

Mobility is the primary device parameter affecting circuit performance in flexible thin-film transistor (TFT) technologies, and is particularly sensitive to the change of mechanical strain and temperature. However, existing algorithms only...

Theory and analysis of generalized mixing and dilution of biochemical fluids using digital microfluidic biochips
Sudip Roy, Bhargab B. Bhattacharya, Sarmishtha Ghoshal, Krishnendu Chakrabarty
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2629578

Digital microfluidic (DMF) biochips are recently being advocated for fast on-chip implementation of biochemical laboratory assays or protocols, and several algorithms for diluting and mixing of reagents have been reported. However, all methods for...

Ultra-low-leakage chip multiprocessor design with hybrid FinFET logic styles
Xianmin Chen, Niraj K. Jha
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2629576

FinFET has begun replacing CMOS at the 22nm technology node because of its enhanced ability to mitigate short-channel effects. Although leakage power of FinFET logic gates is lower than their CMOS counterparts, it still contributes to a large part...

NBTI tolerance and leakage reduction using gate sizing
Ing-Chao Lin, Shun-Ming Syu, Tsung-Yi Ho
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2629657

Leakage power is a major design constraint in deep submicron technology and below. Meanwhile, transistor degradation due to Negative Bias Temperature Instability (NBTI) has emerged as one of the main reliability concerns in nanoscale technology....

Testable cross-power domain interface (CPDI) circuit design in monolithic 3D technology
Jing Xie, Yang Du, Yuan Xie
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2629516

Optimizing energy consumption for electronic systems has been an important design consideration. Multipower domain design is widely used for low-power and high-performance applications. Data transfer between power domains needs a cross-power...

Probabilistic modeling and analysis of molecular memory
Renu Kumawat, Vineet Sahula, Manoj S. Gaur
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2629533

This article investigates the aspects of designing a nanocell based molecular memory. An empirical model for molecular device is developed, based on circuit behavior of nitro-substituted Oligo (Phynylene Ethynylene) molecule (OPE). This device...

QLib: Quantum module library
Chia-Chun Lin, Amlan Chakrabarti, Niraj K. Jha
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2629430

Quantum algorithms are known for their ability to solve some problems much faster than classical algorithms. They are executed on quantum circuits, which consist of a cascade of quantum gates. However, synthesis of quantum circuits is not...
