    Reprogrammable systems based on field programmable gate arrays are revolutionizing some forms of computation and digital logic. As a logic emulation system, they provide orders of magnitude faster computation than software simulation. As a custom-computing machine, they achieve the highest performance implementation for many types of applications. As a multimode system, they yield significant hard... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the recent advances of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) very-large-scale-integration memory and logic applications. Static random access memories (SRAMs), dynamic random access memories (DRAMs), and digital CMOS logic circuits are considered. Particular emphases are placed on the design issues and advantages resulting from ... View full abstract»

    The resonant tunneling diode (RTD) has been widely studied because of its importance in the field of nanoelectronic science and technology and its potential applications in very high speed/functionality devices and circuits. Even though much progress has been made in this regard, additional work is needed to realize the full potential of RTD's. As research on RTD's continues, we will try in this t... View full abstract»

    Many semiconductor quantum devices utilize a novel tunneling transport mechanism that allows picosecond device switching speeds. The negative differential resistance characteristic of these devices, achieved due to resonant tunneling, is also ideally suited for the design of highly compact, self-latching logic circuits. As a result, quantum device technology is a promising emerging alternative for... View full abstract»
