Lombardi (Northeastern U.) and Huang, a design engineer, discuss quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) as an alternative to CMOS for digital design. They are joined by others working in electronic and computer engineering, who provide coverage of design and manufacturing issues and testing, defect modeling, and performance. They explain basic characterization at the device-level, circuits and modular digital systems, and emphasize design and testing to include digital QCA circuits and models for characterizing power consumption, defect diagnosis, modularity, and fault tolerance. They review QCA and compare it with other nanotechnology devices; discuss design, test generation, and testability; propose a two-dimensional clocking scheme; and cover sequential circuit design, memory, implementing universal logic, and computing and energy analysis. Only essential math and physics are presented, but a basic understanding of the subjects, in addition to electrical/electronic engineering, is assumed. The book is meant for use as a reference or textbook for senior elective and graduate courses in nanotechnology, with an emphasis on emerging technologies, or for advanced researchers.
