Pritish Narayanan, Michael Leuchtenburg, Teng Wang, Csaba Andras Moritz
2008 2008 IEEE Computer Society Annual Symposium on VLSI  
A new hybrid CMOS-nanoscale circuit style has been developed that uses only one type of Field Effect Transistor (FET) in the logic portions of a design.  ...  This is enabled by CMOS providing control signals that coordinate the operation of the logic implemented in the nanoscale.  ...  The focus instead is on the new control and circuit scheme and its implications.
