Dr. Max Shulaker
Topic: Transforming Ideas to Reality: Emerging Nanotechnologies from the “Lab” to the “Fab”
Professor Max Shulaker joined the EECS department at MIT as an assistant professor in July. He joined MTL as a core member and is also a resident member in MTL with his office in building 39. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from Stanford University in Electrical Engineering.
During his Ph.D., his research on carbon nanotube-based transistors and circuits resulted in the first digital systems built entirely using carbon nanotube FETs (including the first carbon nanotube microprocessor), the first monolithic three-dimensional integrated circuits combining arbitrary vertical stacking of logic and memory, and the highest performance and highly-scaled carbon nanotube transistors to-date.
Mr. Suk Lee has over 30 years of experience in the Semiconductor, EDA, and IP industries and is currently Senior Director of Design Infrastructure Management Division at TSMC, where he is responsible for managing the OIP Ecosystem and business operations for the Design Technology Platform.
He is a veteran of the ASIC industry and has held engineering, marketing, and senior management positions at LSI Logic, Texas Instruments, Cadence, and Magma Design Systems where he was GM and VP of the Custom Design Business Unit. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering from MIT and Master of Science from the University of Toronto.
Dr. Yvain Thonnart
Yvain Thonnart joined CEA-Leti, a French research and technology organization, in 2005, where he is now senior expert on communication and synchronization in Systems on Chip.
His main interests include networks on chip, silicon photonic based communication, and digital cryolelectronics for quantum systems.
He is involved in the definition of system architecture and hardware-software interaction for a future large-scale Si-based quantum computer
