IET CDT Nano SI 2008 : IET Computers & Digital Techniques Special Issue on Advances in Nanoelectronics Circuits and Systems
Call For Papers
IET Computers and Digital Techniques is seeking original and unpublished papers for a special issue titled "Advances in Nanoelectronics Circuits and Systems" to be published in early 2009. Alternative nanoarchitectures, design-space exploration, and fault tolerance have emerged as major challenges for nanoscale technologies. Extremely high defect rates are being predicted for nanoscale fabrication processes, both for top-down mask-based manufacturing and bottom-up self-assembly. Consequently, there is a need for innovative design solutions, architectures, and test methods. Recent years have seen significant growth in research on these topics, and a number of different research irections are currently being explored. This trend will continue in the near future and even more innovative solutions for improving yield, density, and reliability are expected to emerge.
The aim of this special issue is to bring together researchers to share recent results on various aspects of nanoarchitectures and nanoscale circuit/system design, with coverage ranging from architectural perspectives on nanotechnologies, circuit and system modeling, fault-tolerant design, to design for testability. The special issue will foster further research, thereby leading to the emergence of creative ideas and practical solutions. Some specific topics of interest, but not limited to, are:
- Alternative architectures and circuit/system design for nanoscale technologies
- Fault-tolerant design and nanoarchitectures for existing and emerging technologies.
- Design techniques to enhance yield and reliability.
- Modeling techniques for different nanotechnology devices and systems
- Case studies.
- Fault models, testing, and design for testability
