"COLLOQUIUM Exploration for Beyond CMOS Integrated Circuit Technology for Computing"

Who: Ian Young, Intel Corp, USA

Place: nanoGUNE seminar room, Tolosa Hiribidea 76, Donostia - San Sebastian

Date: Monday, 1 July 2019, 11:00


An analysis of research in quantum electronics and magnetics to identify more energy efficient devices for logic beyond CMOS transistors is presented. Results of beyond-CMOS device benchmarking at the circuit level are reviewed. Based on the benchmarking, trends in this research field are identified and principles for development of competitive computing technologies are formulated. Some leading options for beyond CMOS device proposals and their experimental demonstrations are reviewed.


Ian Young is a Senior Fellow and director of Exploratory Integrated Circuits in the Technology Development Group of Intel Corporation. He joined Intel in 1983 and his technical contributions have been in the design of DRAMs, SRAMs, microprocessor circuit design, Phase Locked Loops and microprocessor clocking, mixed-signal circuits for microprocessor high speed I/O links, RF CMOS circuits for wireless transceivers, and research for chip to chip optical I/O. He has also contributed to the definition and development of Intel?s process technologies. Ian Young now leads a research group exploring the future options for a more energy efficient integrated circuit technology beyond CMOS. His recent work developed a uniform benchmarking methodology to identify the key technology options in quantum electronics and magnetics such as tunneling junction field-effect devices and spintronics. Ian Young received the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and the Master Eng. Science, from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He received the PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He received the 2018 IEEE Frederik Philips Award ?for leadership in research and development on circuits and processes for the evolution of microprocessors?. Ian Young is a Fellow of the IEEE.
