Deployed electronic systems increasingly require advanced processing capabilities, however the time and power required to access system memory – commonly referred to as the “memory bottleneck” – takes a significant toll on their performance. Any substantial improvement in electronic system performance will require a radical reduction in memory access time and overall dynamic power of the system. The use of a monolithic three-dimensional system-on-chip (SoC) stack to integrate memory and logic is one approach that could dramatically alter the memory bottleneck challenge.
Program Manager
Dr. Jan Vandenbrande joined DARPA as a program manager in July 2015. He is interested in developing math and computational tools to radically improve the design of mechanical products.
Program Manager
Dr. Paul Sheehan joined DARPA as a program manager in the Biological Technologies Office in July 2017. Dr. Sheehan will focus on new nanoscale methods for biological sensing that could be coupled with advanced engineering and electronics. His interests involve the bi-directional conversion between electronic and biochemical signals, the study of how nanostructures interact with cells and biomolecules, and new approaches for the rapid development and manufacture of bioassays.
Program Manager
Dr. William Carter is a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office. He was formerly the director of the Materials and Microsystems Laboratory at HRL Laboratories. He received his doctorate in applied physics from Harvard University in 1997 and has more than 15 years of experience managing government and industrial materials research programs. His background spans applied physics, materials science, and mechanics.
