Dr. Chenming Calvin Hu, our esteemed keynote speaker, will discuss
transistor scaling trends, nanometer-era process windows, and reliability
issues associated with new materials. Dr. Hu's pioneering role in the
development of next generation technologies at TSMC and his experiences as a
key figure in Silicon Valley's history will make this evening's program
especially valuable for the semiconductor entrepreneur. 

Dr. Chenming Calvin Hu is currently the TSMC Distinguished Professor of
Microelectronics in the EE&CS Department of UC Berkeley.  Most recently he
was the Chief Technology Officer of TSMC, Hsinchu, Taiwan, while on leave
from UC Berkeley. He was founding chairman of Celestry Design Technologies,
an IC design software company that was acquired by Cadence Design Systems in
2003. He leads the development of the BSIM transistor model for CMOS circuit
simulation.  He co-developed the FinFET, a new MOSFET structure that has
allowed the IC industry to reset the record for smallest transistor several
times and is expected to enable scaling to 10nm gate lengths.
