Summary

This course aims at giving the student a detailed overview of the computation circuits and systems for computations that are expected to become the main actor in the forthcoming scenario, going beyond the ultra-scaled CMOS technologies and focusing the attention on the emerging technologies.

Content

The student will have a good overview of the novel solutions offered by the nanotechnologies. He will have an exaustive coverage starting from the technology, passing to the devices up to the architectures. One of the training goals of the course is to give to the student a scenario form which to choose a specific topic of particular interest, that will be studiedand developed for the preparation of the final Project Report.

1. State of the art: nanocomputing in ULTRA scaled CMOS:

2. Field coupled nanocomputing (FCN):

3. Nanoarray nanocomputing based on nanowires:
