Korhammer Lecture Series 

Silicon is the New Steel: Building the Internet of Everything - the World's First Terascale Network 
Thomas Lee 
Professor Electrical Engineering, 
Stanford University 

December 2 , 2016 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm 


Bowen Hall Auditorium 
Reception to follow 

Steel transformed civilization in the 20th century, shifting from high-tech material to commodity in the process. Silicon is undergoing an analogous transition, as the action shifts from circuits to systems. This talk will argue that multiple convergent trends are pushing us toward the terascale age, presenting us with both historic opportunities and historic challenges. The latter extend from DC to the millimeter wave, and from design tools to the economics of test. Securing a network possessing an "attack surface" of unprecedented magnitude, as well as supplying power to a trillion devices, remain challenges as well. Solving these problems will complete the transition of silicon from today's ubiquity to tomorrow's invisibility.

Thomas Lee received his degrees from MIT. His 1989 doctoral thesis described the world's first CMOS radio. He has been at Stanford University since 1994, having previously worked at Analog Devices, Rambus and other companies. He's helped design PLLs for several microprocessors (notably AMD's K6-K7-K8 and DEC's StrongARM), and has founded or cofounded several companies, including 3D memory company, Matrix Semiconductor (acquired by Sandisk), and IoE companies ZeroG Wireless (acquired by Microchip) and Ayla Networks. He is an IEEE and Packard Foundation Fellow, has won "Best Paper" awards at CICC and ISSCC, and was awarded the 2011 Ho-Am Prize in Engineering. He is a past Director of DARPA's Microsystems Technology Office, serves on the board of Xilinx, and owns between 100 and 200 oscilloscopes, thousands of vacuum tubes, and kilograms of obsolete semiconductors. No one, including himself, quite knows why.
