Biologically Inspired Computing, Nanoelectronic (Molecular Scale) Architectures

Dr. Dan Hammerstrom

http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~strom//

As we move to deep submicron and on to molecular scale circuits, IC design is challenging designers with unacceptable power density, unreliable components, quantum side effects, expensive interconnect, probabilistic behavior, etc. Alleviating these shortcomings will require new architectures and computational models.  Motivated by the fact that biological systems have successfully dealt with similar issues, we are using biological models as a guide to develop new models of computation and architectures that are more suitable to molecular scale electronics.

Past and current support comes from National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Office of Naval Research (ONR) and MaxViz, Inc. / USAF.
