Moore’s law has set the pace for CMOS scaling for the past half century. However, solutions are needed to extend Moore’s law as we approach the fundamental limits of CMOS scaling. In the past decade, the race to find a technology to replace CMOS has intensified. Experiments using novel material systems have uncovered interesting physical phenomena that enable new electronic devices. In this presentation, the methodology for benchmarking CMOS replacement technologies will be presented using the broad field of spintronics as an example. We will see the advantages and drawbacks of the traditional way of comparing CMOS to other technologies. Drawing on the lessons learnt from the exercise, I will present the paradigm shift needed in the benchmarking of alternatives to CMOS technology. 

Dr Fong Xuanyao received the Ph.D. degree from Purdue University in 2014. He was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Nanoelectronics Research Laboratory, Purdue University, and at the Center for Spintronic Materials, Interfaces and Novel Architectures, University of Minnesota—Twin Cities. He is currently a Research Scientist in the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). His research interests include device/circuit/system modeling, simulation and co-design methodologies for highly energy efficient electronic systems.
