Relay Technology and Circuit Design for Energy-Efficient Electronics
Transistor scaling has yielded continual improvements in integrated-circuit performance and cost per function over the past several decades, ushering 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 increased power consumption. In this seminar, we will discuss recent developments, research, and challenges in micro-relay technology and circuits that aim to overcome the CMOS power crisis and usher in the Age of Ambient Intelligence.
