Digital Electronics: Fundamental Limits and Future Porspects

Logo for Digital Electronics:  Fundamental Limits and Future Porspects
I will review some old and some recent work on the fundamental (and not so fundamental) limits imposed by physics of electron devices on their density and power consumption. In particular, I will discuss:reversible computing, that allows one to beat the apparent Maxwell's-demon (E kBTln2) and uncertainty-relation (E /£n) "limits" for energy dissipation E per logic operation, andquantum-mechanical effects that impose limits on shrinking of both field-effect and single-electron transistors.I...
