PhD - Techniques and Trends Towards Resilient and Energy Efficient Embedded Electronic Systems

The scaling of semiconductor devices (MOS device size has already reached the ten nanometers) continues to improve the cost and performance of integrated circuits. The nanometer scale CMOS systems, however, suffer from increased variations in reliability, performance and power consumption.

In the meantime, flexible electronics is emerging as an alternative to conventional brittle silicon electronics for applications such as wearable sensors, e-skin, bendable displays, foldable solar cells to name a few. One of the key issues of flexible electronics is reliability and the mitigation of device variability over device area and time. 

In this perspective, the proposed activity aims to highlighting the emerging methods and techniques, at device, circuit, architectural, and algorithmic levels, that will counteract the variability of embedded electronic systems either based on CMOS and/or flexible electronics. The proposed solutions will pave the way towards resilient and energy efficient embedded electronic systems for relevant application domains such as Cyber Physical Systems, Humanoid Robotics and Neuroengineering.
