Logic design in post-silicon technologies
The design of low-power high-performance computing systems will exploit emerging technologies where computation is achieved by combining optical waves and/or current pulses. In either setting, an abstraction of the technology leads us to fundamental logic gates based upon majority, threshold and comparison functions. Large-scale digital design requires then new algorithms for logic synthesis and optimization that leverage these models and exploit their properties. The talk will illustrate some high-risk, high-reward technologies and the correspondingg new electronic design automation methods and tools.
