The steady miniaturization of the MOSFET with each new generation of CMOS technology yielded continual improvements in integrated-circuit performance and cost per function over the past several decades, to usher in the Information Age. Continued transistor scaling will not be as straightforward in the future as it has been in the past, however, due to fundamental limits leading to increases in power consumption and variability in transistor performance. These challenges represent new opportunities for innovation. In this talk, I will discuss recent developments and ongoing research at UC Berkeley in CMOS and MEMS technologies, aimed to sustain the rapid pace of silicon technology advancement and usher in the Age of Ubiquitous Computing.
