In this book, internationally recognized researchers give a state-of-the-art overview of the electronic device architectures required for the nano-CMOS era and beyond. Challenges relevant to the scaling of CMOS nanoelectronics are addressed through different core CMOS and memory device options in the first part of the book. The second part reviews new device concepts for nanoelectronics beyond CMOS. What are the fundamental limits of core CMOS, and can we improve the scaling by the introduction of new materials or processes? Will the new architectures using SOI, multigates or multichannels improve the trade-off between performance and power consumption and relax the constraints of new material integration? Can quantum computing replace binary-based protocols to enhance the information-processing power? These and other questions are answered in this book.
