The organizers of the 66th annual IEDM have decided to hold the December conference virtually.
As 2D scaling becomes increasingly difficult, researchers reporting at VLSI Symposia have focused attention on what can be done in the third dimensions to improve density and performance without a sudden break from conventional CMOS processes.
AMD worked with Microsoft and Azure to cut DRC runtimes and control memory usage for a 7nm cloud-based design.
Moortec has reworked its thermal-sensing core design to allow for finer-grained use on SoCs being designed for the 5nm node.
The IEEE plans to stage the 66th International Electron Device Meeting as a physical event in mid-December.
There's still plenty of time to build a busy and profitable agenda for a visit to ES Design West and SEMICON West in San Francisco next week.
Embedded magnetic RAM is emerging as a contender for on-chip memory not just from a density standpoint but from that of power.
Imec and Unisantis Electronics have developed a process flow based on a vertical transistor with a gate on all sides they claim will lead to denser memories on a 5nm node.
IEDM has issued a call for papers for its 2018 conference, expecting to cover devices and circuit interactions in neuromorphic, quantum and conventional computing.
Cadence Design Systems has made enhancements to its Virtuoso mixed-signal layout tool at both the system-level and nanometer-design levels for its 18.1 release.
