Theme and Scope

Aggressive scaling of semiconductor process technology over the last several decades has resulted in creation of many new products, such as camera, tablets, smart phones and information appliances. The trend is expected to continue for the coming years and create countless opportunities and challenges. Recent developments in semiconductor industry show a rapid increase in chip frequency and design complexity. Introduction of newer technologies is now moving towards a two year cycle as compared to traditional three year cycle. Though technology scaling helps in addressing design complexity and performance trends, it opens up a whole new spectrum of design validation challenges. The special issue will be dedicated to ascertain the prospects, progress and challenges in Nanoscale Electronics Devices and their Applications. The specific topics of interest would be following, but submissions related to all broad area of VLSI that are not mentioned below are also invited:
