CMOS 2.0: bringing heterogeneity inside the system-on-chip

A new approach to miniaturization with greater versatility for compute system optimization


Julien Ryckaert, VP Logic Technologies at imec, explains how CMOS 2.0 brings heterogeneity inside the compute system-on-chip (SoC), as such addressing a broader variety of compute specificities.

He identifies advanced 3D interconnect and backside technologies as instrumental to realize this concept...

... and calls upon the semiconductor ecosystem to adapt to this new way of approaching miniaturization.
