The 9th International Workshop on Post-Binary Ultra-Large-Scale-Integration (ULSI) Systems will be held on Friday, May 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the same site as the ISMVL2000. In this workshop, emphasis is placed on the technological aspects of MVL.

The MVL scheme has exhibited several advantages in arithmetic operations, data communications, signal processing, and so on. Real challenges are what to do to implement it on a semiconductor wafer. MV memory chips were developed recently; will the logic circuits follow them near future? As the sub-0.1u ULSI age is coming, it is a good time to overview the present MVL technology and to talk about the future ULSI paradigm that would break the limit of conventional binary LSIs.

The workshop includes the invited lecture by Prof. Mazumder with the University of Michigan, and five papers describing state-of-the-art research results.

I believe all participants will enjoy them. Please feel free to join us!
