Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


This paper looks at the prospects of continuing Moore's law into the deca nanometer regime using novel technology that has been recently proposed in the literature. It reviews some key advances in nanoelectronics, and provides an integration perspective for the ultimate goal of terascale integration. Issues from physical level circuits to system level architectures are discussed.
