Our group's research interests focus on the physical modeling and reliable integration of extremely scaled CMOS and post-silicon devices, driven by technology scaling towards the 10nm regime and beyond. With current emphasis on the pressing issue of variability and reliability in integrated circuits, the overarching goal of the NIMO Group is to advance the state of the art in interdisciplinary solutions for robust nanoelectronic design.

Research Highlights

  • Predictive Technology Model (PTM) for advanced technologies, including nanoscale CMOS, alternative structures, and post-silicon devices.
  • Reliability modeling and design solutions, such as the effect of bias-temperature-instability.
  • Modeling, simulation, and in-situ characterization of variability and reliability.
  • Neural-inspired hardware design and algorithms for on-chip learning.
