This 3D tutorial will give an introduction on emerging 3D IC technology,discuss design automation algorithm/methodology for 3D IC design,present various architectural innovations for 3D microprocessor/SOC designs and discuss thecost implication for 3D ICs.

Who Should Attend?

undergraduate and graduate students in EE/CS major,VLSI design engineers, technical managers, and anyone who is interested in design perspective of 3D IC technologies.

Dr. Yuan Xie is Professor in Computer Science and Engineering department at the Pennsylvania State University, and is now on-leave from PSU to lead the AMD Research China Lab in Beijing. He received the B.S. degree in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University. He has published more than 100 research papers in journals and refereed conference proceedings, in the areaof EDA, computer architecture, VLSI circuit designs, and embedded systems. His research projects include: three-dimensional integrated circuits (3D ICs) design, EDA, and architecture; emerging memory technologies; low power and thermal-aware design; reliable circuits and architectures; and embedded system synthesis.
