VLSI, or Very-Large-Scale-Integration, is the practice of combining billions of transistors to create an integrated circuit. At present, VLSI circuits are realised using CMOS technology. However, the demand for ever smaller, more efficient circuits is now pushing the limits of CMOS. Post-CMOS refers to the possible future digital logic technologies beyond the CMOS scaling limits. This book addresses the current state of the art in VLSI technologies and presents potential options for post-CMOS approaches.
The book begins by discussing low-voltage low-power VLSI design, then goes on to cover through silicon via interconnects for 3D integration. Coverage further includes modelling and simulation for post-CMOS device and circuit design, high-performance compound semiconductor devices and applications, process variability in FinFETs, and other novel and emerging technologies. VLSI and Post-CMOS Devices, Circuits and Modelling is a useful reference guide for researchers, engineers and advanced students working in the area of design and modelling of VLSI and post-CMOS devices and their circuits.
