Traditional CMOS scaling, which was driving device performance during the past several decades, is approaching atomistic and quantum-mechanical boundaries. Semiconductor R&D innovation have never been more critical to drive technology scaling and performance. The development of leading-edge silicon technology requires long-term investments and collaboration in fundamental research to solve the significant challenges of the future technology nodes at an affordable cost. Computational techniques will be a critical tool in this effort. This talk will describe the semiconductor technology future directions, challenges and opportunities.
Date of Conference: 27-29 May 2009
