Event Details

Chenming Hu, Distinguished Professor of Microelectronics, UC Berkeley

A single cellphone today has more computing power than all the computers in the world combined had before semiconductor chips were part of the equation. Mounting evidence shows that the rapid movement of integrated circuits’ cost and power will plateau. When and why might it happen and what are technologists doing about it? What does all this mean to consumers and the industry? Hu has been called a "microelectronics visionary" by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers for "achievements critical to producing smaller yet more reliable and higher-performance integrated circuits". His new transistor, FinFET, is replacing the transistor that the industry has used for the past five decades.
