Nanodevices for Computing and Logic Beyond CMOS
February 24 (Thursday), 2022
11:30 am to 12:30 pm (EST)
Virtual via Zoom
Abstract: Dr. Shamik Das will discuss recent developments in the pursuit of novel devices, circuits, and systems that might continue the decades-long progress of “Moore’s Law” beyond the scaling of silicon complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. Many of these developments are documented in the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS), particularly in its chapter on “Beyond CMOS.” The speaker will present examples of candidate Beyond CMOS devices as well as some circuit- and system-level considerations that inform whether these devices might be viable in end-user computational and logic applications.
Biography: Dr. Shamik Das is Division Chief Engineer at The MITRE Corporation in McLean, VA, where he is responsible for the technical execution, quality management, and innovation delivery for MITRE’s activity advancing the missions of sponsors at the Department of Defense. The technical scope of this work encompasses R&D, test & evaluation, and acquisition in areas including AI, cyber, 5G, microelectronics, systems engineering, data analytics, and emerging technologies. Dr. Das is also a section chair for the Beyond CMOS working group for the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS), which is the roadmap for the worldwide semiconductor industry.
