Emerging Circuit Technologies: An Overview on the Next Generation of Circuits
Sprache des Titels:
Advanced Logic Synthesis
In the last decades, great progress has been made in the development of computing machines resulting in electronic systems which can be found in almost every aspect of our daily life. All this has become possible due to the achievements made in the domain of semiconductors which is usually associated with Moore?s Law?the famous prediction by Gordon Moore that the number of transistors in an electronic device doubles every 18 months. While this prediction is still holding on, physical boundaries and cost restrictions of conventional CMOS-based circuitry led to an increasing interest in alternative technologies (so called More than Moore technologies). Besides that, the advances according to Moore?s Law also lead to the consideration of application areas for electronic systems which go beyond just performing computations and complement the digital part by non-digital functionality (leading to so called More than Moore technologies).
