Rescuing Nanoelectronics

Maksim Jenihhin

Nanoelectronic systems are omnipresent in our life today. The invasion of electronics started in the years when Boris Tamm was establishing Estonian research and education in this domain half a century ago. Since then, the dimensions of electronic primitives—transistors—have scaled down in millions. The era of microelectronics is over. Today, we are surrounded by nanoelectronic systems featuring transistors that are just tens of nanometers wide, while even smaller chips with transistors of just a couple of nanometers in size are being experimented with in scientific laboratories.

We rely on nanoelectronics, we entrust it our daily routine and often our lives, while taking its quality and reliability as granted. But the reality is not that simple. The new nanotechnology, that provides us with unprecedented computational power, is subject to new threats, such as cosmic radiation, that can flip bits of information rushing between transistors, or the new phenomenon of electronics aging, where degraded performance of selected nanometer transistors can lead to functional failures. Besides the threats challenging reliability of nanoelectronic systems along their lifetime, there are new threats to compromise their quality already at the very beginning of their life. Transistors are made smaller in order to squeeze more of them on a single chip. Billions of them on a square centimeter, referred to as gigascale integration, make it extremely difficult to correctly design and manufacture and then verify and test the nanoelectronic systems we use today.

This lecture will give an overview on how researchers from TUT are rescuing nanoelectronics from the new threats brought about by technological progress. It will make emphasis on reliability and quality of nanoelectronic systems and the contributions of the speaker in particular.
