to the E2 SWITCH projectSteep transistors are being developed worldwide to achieve less than 60 mV/decade subthreshold swing. Realization of this transistor will enable electronic systems with sub-half-volt supply voltages achieving lower power dissipation and greater energy efficiency than can be achieved with modern transistors.
The "Steep Transistors Workshop" is a specialists meeting. Leading engineers and scientists from more than 30 industry and academic research teams worldwide have been invited to participate in the workshop. Because it is a specialists meeting, speakers will skip introductory material and address key new findings or issues of interest to the community. It is the purpose of this meeting to provide a forum to compare and contrast approaches, air technical challenges, and form collaborations to accelerate development.
The workshop will be held at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, October 5-6, 2015. It is being co-organized by the SRC/DARPA STARnet Center for Low Energy System Technology (LEAST) and the European Energy Efficient Tunnel FET Switches and Circuits program (E2 SWITCH).
The meeting is open to interested researchers, postdocs, and students.
