Space and time combine to overpower the human brain

Rich Goldman VP from Synopsys concluded that by the middle of this century, computing power will exceed the thinking capacity of all the humans beings on the planet.
For example, Goldman said, a 1982 Intel 80286 was 28 times more powerful than computers on the Voyagers 1 and 2, launched in 1977. Sputnik computers were capable of only 2,000 instructions per second. And a 2010 Apple iPad is 689 times more powerful than the onboard computers on the Columbia space shuttle, first launched in 1981. [read more]

[mos-ak] C4P MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in Washington DC on Dec. 7 2011

C4P MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in Washington DC on Dec. 7 2011
Together with the Organizing Committee and Extended MOS-AK/GSA TPC
Committee, we have pleasure to invite to the MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in
Washington DC on Dec. 7 2011

The MOS-AK/GSA Workshop is HiTech forum to discuss the frontiers of
the electron devices modeling with emphasis on simulation-aware
models. Original papers presenting new developments and advances in
the compact/spice modeling and its Verilog-A standardization are
solicited. The main topics of the workshop are: (but are not limited
* Compact Modeling (CM) of the electron devices
* VHDL-AMS/Verilog-A for CM standardization
* New CM techniques and extraction software
* CM of passive, active, sensors and actuators
* Emerging devices, CMOS and SOI-based memory cells
* Microwave, RF device modeling, high voltage device modeling
* Transistor Level IC support
* Nanoscale CMOS devices and circuits
* Reliability and thermal management of electron devices
* Technology R&D, DFY, DFT and IC designs
* Foundry/Fabless interface strategies

The terms of participation:
Authors are asked to submit a short (~200words) abstract using on-
submission form by OCT.30
Intending authors should also note the following deadlines:
* Announcement and Call for Papers - Oct 2011
* on-line abstract submission deadline - OCT.30, 2011
* Final Workshop Program - Nov. 2011
* MOS-AK/GSA Workshop - Dec. 7, 2011
