    During the past several years we have been developing technology for the creation of 3D microelectronics. Our 3D circuits are fabricated using standard bulk CMOS processing and are then transferred from one wafer to another. The transfer process allows alignment of the layers. The resulting structure consists of lower substrate and associated circuitry, with one or more thin-film circuit layers st... View full abstract»

    A simple way to find the steady state is long-time transient simulation run, but for high-Q-circuits his is often not practicable. Additionally, a criterion has to be determined in order to be sure of reaching the steady state. This problems of the transient analysis of high-Q-circuits have already been addressed in the PSPICE-Manual. These circuits require setting up the time step manually becaus... View full abstract»

    This article discusses a specific design situation that represents quite a broad class of problems in the study of signal integrity. The article focuses on the effects on high-speed signals that need to cross split ground planes and split power planes that act as signal references or partial references. Such configurations are frequently needed in the layout of printed circuit boards (PCBs), multi... View full abstract»

    In this article we briefly introduce the theory and development of DNA-based computing, present the underlying problems associated with DNA-based computing technology, and discuss the trend of nanoelectronics as well as several computational paradigms for selected existing classical solutions with quantum-effect devices. The pros and cons of both the DNA-based computing and the quantum computing a... View full abstract»
