The IEEE Washington Section calendar pulls content from the Washington Section’s vTools Events feed, the Northern Virginia Section’s vTools Events feed, and the Baltimore Section’s vTools Events feed, since there is significant overlap between the two sections’ members. (vTools Events is the IEEE-operated database that contains all IEEE events globally. To be useful, it requires filtering at the section level.)

Registration for events is handled by vTools. To register for an event using vTools, click the “Register Today” link at the bottom of an event description on this site.

Moore’s Law and Radiation Effects on Microelectronics

2019-09-09 @ 18:00 - 21:00 EDT

Co-sponsored by: CH02167 – Northern Virginia/Wash Jt Sections Chapter,NANO42

55 years ago Gordon Moore postulated that the number of components in an integrated circuit would double every 1-2 years. This trend still holds, making it one of the longest, sustained geometric progressions in the history of the industrialized world, enabling revolutions in computing and in virtually every aspect of technology that is enabled or enhanced by computing. Transistor dimensions have decreased from tens of microns to ~ 10 nanometers over this time period. In this presentation, we will examine the effects of Moore’s Law size and voltage scaling of transistors and integrated circuits on the vulnerability of microelectronics to ionizing radiation effects in near-Earth space and terrestrial applications. We will also discuss limitations that these vulnerabilities place on future highly-scaled integrated circuit technologies.

Speaker(s): Prof. Daniel Fleetwood,
