[mos-ak] CUSPICE: CUDA-accelerated NGSPICE release available immediately

 Recently, Francesco Lannutti, NGSPICE lead developer, has announced the CUSPICE: CUDA-accelerated NGSPICE release. The NVIDIA has recognised importance of the open source CAD/EDA tools and gave the permission to release CUSPICE as an integral part of the NGSPICE simulation platform. New NGSPICE extension is available immediately on the NGSPICE repository, in the branch named 'CUSPICE'. 

 At the moment only BSIM4v7, CAP, IND, ISRC, RES and VSRC device models are supported by the CUSPICE simulator. With broad acceptance of the NGSPICE simulation platform, we can expect other standard models and new extensions developed, soon.

Devices That You Definitely Will (and Just Might) Use: Emerging Transistor Technologies for the Near-and Long-Term

 WEDNESDAY June 04, 4:00pm - 6:00pm | Room 302 

 SPECIAL DAC SESSION 63: Devices That You Definitely Will (and Just Might) Use: Emerging Transistor Technologies for the Near-and Long-Term

Chair:  Michael Niemier; Univ. of Notre Dame, IN
Organizers:  Michael Niemier; Univ. of Notre Dame, IN
Xiaobo Sharon Hu; Univ. of Notre Dame, IN

Want to learn about the latest developments in FinFET-based processor design? What other transistor technologies might follow FinFETs and would they bring new design and modeling challenges? Come to this session to hear about both near- and long-term transistor technologies and their prospects for continuing Moore’s Law-based performance scaling trends. The session will begin with a discussion of FinFET technology; subsequent presentations will discuss tunnel transistors (TFETs) as well as other emerging FET technologies that could reenable voltage scaling. The session will conclude with a discussion of modeling efforts that consider the impact of new device technologies on von Neumann architectures as well as hybrid analog/digital circuits and architectures.

63.1 FinFET's and Their Implications for Design Now and in the Future

  • Speaker: Rob Aitken; ARM Ltd., San Jose, CA
    Greg Yeric; ARM Ltd., Austin, TX
    Brian Cline; ARM Ltd., Austin, TX
    Lucian Shifren; ARM Ltd., San Jose, CA

63.2 Emerging Devices for Logic: Can a Low-Power Switch Be Fast?

  • Speaker: Thomas Theis; IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY

63.3 Energy Efficient Tunnel-FET Transistors for Beyond CMOS Logic

  • Speaker: Uygar Avci; Intel Corp., Portland, OR
