Abstract
CHARGE-MODE DIGITAL LOGIC APPEARS TO HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL AS A BUILDING BLOCK FOR FUTURE SUPERCOMPUTERS. ITS EXTREMELY HIGH COMPUTATIONAL DENSITY, ESTIMATED AT 2 X 10(14) GATE-HZ/CM(2), IS ACHIEVABLE AT 2 MINIMUM FEATURES USING CONVENTIONAL, OPTICAL LITHOGRAPHY. BY CONTRAST, DOD'S VHSIC II PROGRAM GOAL IS 1 X 10(13) GATE-HZ/CM(2) AND REQUIRES 0.5 UPSILON M FEATURES. WITH CHARGE-MODE LOGIC, MORE THAN 20,000 8-BIT TIMES 8-BIT, 2'S COMPLEMENT MULTIPLIERS CAN BE FABRICATED ON A 1.0 CM(2) CHIP YIELDING 17 X 10(9) MULTIPLICATIONS PER SECOND. IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY UTILIZE SUCH A LARGE COMPUTATIONAL SWNMAIRY, PEOXWAAOEA MUAR VW EENFWS IN XEWDULLY OESWEWS ARRAY (E.G., A SYSTOLIC ARRAY). PRELIMINARY DESIGNS OF CHARGE-MODE LOGIC COMPONENTS LEND THEMSELVES WELL TO ORDERED ARRAYS, ESPECIALLY THOSE SUITABLE FOR MATRIX-MATRIX AND MATRIX-VECTOR OPERATIONS. THROUGH DETAILED MODELING AND ANALYSIS, THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL RESULT IN CANDIDATE COMPONENTS TO BE FABRICATED IN PHASE II.
