Short Course #4
More-than-Moore Technologies: Device, Circuit and System Perspectives
Yiyu Shi, Instructor

This course is designed to be interdisciplinary, providing cross-domain knowledge in computer engineering, physics and chemistry. It is intended for chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and electrical/computer engineers with an interest in developing or utilizing More-than-Moore technologies. The course is best suited for an attendee who has little or no background in these technologies and wants to appreciate the overall picture. The attendee will develop basic understanding of fundamental mechanisms behind various More-than-Moore technologies, their pros and cons, their critical issues/open questions that need to be addressed, and their possible applications in computer circuit and system designs. The topics to be covered include:

  • State-of-the-Art CMOS Devices and the Bottleneck of Moore’s Law
  • Carbon Nanotube Based Interconnects and Devices
  • Spintronics Based Devices
  • FinFETs and Ultra-Thin-Body Devices
  • Non-Volatile Memory
  • Photonic Circuits (Integrated Optical Circuits)
  • Three-dimensional (3D) Integration

About the Instructor

Yiyu Shi received his B.S. degree (with honors) in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2005, the M.S and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2007 and 2009 respectively. He joined the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri, Rolla) from Sept. 2010. His current research interests include advanced design and test technologies for 3D IC. In recognition of his research, six of his papers have been nominated for the Best Paper Award in top conferences (DAC'05, ICCAD'07, ICCD'08, ASPDAC'09, DAC'09, ISPD'13). He was also the recipient of the IBM Invention Achievement Award in 2009. He has served on the technical program committee of many international conferences including DAC, ICCAD, ISPD, ASPDAC and ICCD. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2014.
