Abstract

CMOS technology has been the major drive for the exponential growth of electronic systems, also known as Moore's law, for many years. However, many serious challenges are facing this trend due to fundamental physical limits of CMOS technology such as ultra-thin gate oxides, short channel effects, doping fluctuations across the chip and increasingly difficult and expensive lithography. Emerging nanotechnologies, such as carbon nanotubes, single electron transistors, and quantum-dots cellular automata promise to supersede CMOS technology in future. This tutorial covers some of these emerging nanotechnologies from device, circuit, architecture, and design perspectives. The main focus of this tutorial will be on design automation and robustness (testing, defect tolerance and fault tolerance) of systems built using such nanoscale devices.
