    In this paper, we present a review of the state of the art in memristor technologies. Along with ionic conducting devices [i.e., conductive bridging random access memory (CBRAM)], we include phase change, and organic/organo-metallic technologies, and we review the most recent advances in oxide-based memristor technologies. We present progress on 3-D integration techniques, and we discuss the behav... View full abstract»

    The introduction of electromagnetic (EM) media with unique field manipulation properties, collectively labelled as metamaterials, has boosted the interest toward the design, the fabrication, and the testing of artificial materials whose features can be engineered according to the applicative requirements and user objectives. In this framework, the long-term promise of reconfigurable metamaterial t... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel polarization-reconfigurable converter (PRC) is proposed based on a multilayer frequency-selective surface (MFSS). First, the MFSS is designed using the square patches and the grid lines array to determine the operational frequency and bandwidth, and then the corners of the square patches are truncated to produce the phase difference of 90° between the two orthogonal l...

    Digital hardware accelerators are increasingly employed to speed up computation and reduce power dissipation, enabling real-time operation. Inspired by this paradigm, we propose the concept of the photonic hardware accelerator-an analog optical processing engine that precedes optical-to-electrical conversion and alleviates the burden on subsequent electronics. We propose one specific class of phot... View full abstract»

    Alternatives to traditional full-custom analog/mixed-signal application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are described. These novel approaches apply many of the concepts of deep-submicrometer digital structured arrays and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to analog design and fabrication methodologies. Field- and mask-programmable analog architectures are compared and contrasted to the lo... View full abstract»

    Modern high-speed networks have evolved from relatively static networks to highly adaptive networks facilitating dynamic reconfiguration. This evolution has influenced all levels of network design and management, introducing increased programmability and configuration flexibility. This influence has extended from the lowest level of physical hardware interfaces to the highest level of network mana... View full abstract»

    Driven by the advent of sophisticated and ubiquitous applications, and the ever-growing need for information, wireless networks are without a doubt steadily evolving into profoundly more complex and dynamic systems. The user demands are progressively rampant, while application requirements continue to expand in both range and diversity. Future wireless networks, therefore, must be equipped with th...

    Field-programmable wiring systems refer to methods and hardware that can maintain the interconnection of components of different types. Generally, field-programmable wiring systems support the use of multidomain fabrics that can be used to route analog, power, digital signals, optical, microwave signals, etc. This paper reviews fundamental concepts associated with the practical implementation of f...

    In this paper, we discuss the advantages and opportunities presented by high-speed (> 50 GHz) reconfigurable integrated circuits and how they may drive reconfigurable systems applications, such as software-defined radio, radar, and imaging. We propose silicon-germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS as an example technology that enables ultrafast reconfigurable systems and present several circuit designs based ... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews the recent developments in monolithic 3-D field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Enabling technologies are covered. Three representative groups of monolithic 3-D FPGAs are discussed: “normally off, instantly on” FPGAs, FPGAs with 3-D switches, and FPGAs with 3-D configuration memory and pass transistors. The circuit designs and implementations of each group are pr... View full abstract»

    Recently, the shrinking of the personal computer market has given a clear signal that it is time to divert our focus from the strategy of miniaturization of transistors to a different strategy with emerging technologies. As a new form of electronics, stretchable electronics has significantly advanced in the past few years by micro/nanofabrication of thin films of traditional stiff and hard materia...

    The endpoint toward which reconfigurable systems should develop is programmable matter, that is, complex systems whose physical properties and structure can be controlled in a systematic way. This can be accomplished by recognizing that computational processes can be used to assemble and reconfigure complex, hierarchically structured systems. Programmable matter may be programmatically controlled ... View full abstract»
