CMOS Technology - Past, Present and Future 
 
Fri, Nov 03, 2017,   04:00 PM at Physics Seminar Room 31, 2nd Floor, Main Building

Prof. Souvik Mahapatra
IIT Bombay

Semiconductor CMOS technology has enabled great products from smart phones and laptops to internet, cloud based computation and data storage that benefit our everyday lives. In this talk, we will discuss the basics of CMOS technology, the "well known" Moore's law scaling, and innovations in materials, processes and architectures that have enabled the semiconductor "chips" that power these products today. Next we will discuss future technology trends, challenges and potential roadblocks, and innovations needed to continue Moore's scaling. Finally, we will discuss key reliability challenges that plague the performance of these products, which must be overcome to guarantee error free operation of these chips till the end of product life. 
 
 
[I wish to discuss with the final year students who are interested in doing research in areas of device scaling and reliability and device-circuit interaction - for sub 10nm CMOS technology nodes. At IIT Bombay, my research group actively collaborates with different global semiconductor industries to address technology relevant challenges (that I will cover in the talk) - Applied Materials (USA) who builds chip fabrication equipments, Synopsys (USA) who builds softwares to design devices and circuits, IBM (USA), Intel (USA), Micron (USA), Qualcomm (USA), ST Microelectronics (France), TSMC (Taiwan) and Renesas (Japan) who build semiconductor chips that power the products.]
