Advances in Semiconductor Technologies: Selected Topics Beyond Conventional CMOS (Hardcover)
Advances in Semiconductor Technologies
Discover the broad sweep of semiconductor technologies in this uniquely curated resource
Semiconductor technologies and innovations have been the backbone of numerous different fields: electronics, online commerce, the information and communication industry, and the defense industry. For over fifty years, silicon technology and CMOS scaling have been the central focus and primary driver of innovation in the semiconductor industry. Traditional CMOS scaling has approached some fundamental limits, and as a result, the pace of scientific research and discovery for novel semiconductor technologies is increasing with a focus on novel materials, devices, designs, architectures, and computer paradigms. In particular, new computing paradigms and systems--such as quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things--have the potential to unlock unprecedented power and application space.
Advances in Semiconductor Technologies provides a comprehensive overview of selected semiconductor technologies and the most up-to-date research topics, looking in particular at mainstream developments in current industry research and development, from emerging materials and devices, to new computing paradigms and applications. This full-coverage volume gives the reader valuable insights into state-of-the-art advances currently being fabricated, a wide range of novel applications currently under investigation, and a glance into the future with emerging technologies in development.
Advances in Semiconductor Technologies readers will also find:
- A comprehensive approach that ensures a thorough understanding of state-of-the-art technologies currently being fabricated
- Treatments on all aspects of semiconductor technologies, including materials, devices, manufacturing, modeling, design, architecture, and applications
- Articles written by an impressive team of international academics and industry insiders that provide unique insights into a wide range of topics
Advances in Semiconductor Technologies is a useful, time-saving reference for electrical engineers working in industry and research, who are looking to stay abreast of rapidly advancing developments in semiconductor electronics, as well as academics in the field and government policy advisors.
