Abstract

So far, performance increases of electronic devices have primarily been achieved through semiconductor technology shrinking in combination with architectural enhancements. Performance gains form further progress in miniaturisation following Moore�s are likely to slow down in the next decade, and the straightforward architectural gains now produce diminishing returns. At the same time, performance requirements from high-bandwidth networks and portable devices they support are escalating. An emerging class of intelligent networked sensors is further increasing the need for scaling up performance.
