PORTLAND, Ore. ‐Intel described more than a dozen technologies to transcend the limitations of CMOS it is developing in conjunction with universities and the Semiconductor Research Corp. industry consortium at the International Symposium on Physical Design (ISPD 2017) here last month.
Intel's ultimate goal is to achieve significantly lower energy per operation for computation while utilizing the same fabs.
"We are looking beyond CMOS logic and computation methods to discover how to do it differently," said Ian Young, a senior fellow in with Intel's Technology Manufacturing Group and director of exploratory integrated circuits in components research. "We want to lower the power supply voltage well below 0.5V, but the 60mV per decade sub-threshold swing of the MOSFET limits us from doing this for CMOS logic."
