The Fantastic Road Forward: The Future of 3D IC Design and the Discovery of Self-Replicating Living Robots

This week's podcast is all about the future of 3D IC tools and methodologies and the newest advancement in xenobot research. Vinay Patwardhan (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss the challenges engineers experience when designing 3D chips, where existing 3D-IC tools and methodologies fall short, and what type of analysis we need for a 3D stack system as opposed to a standard chip design. Also this week, I investigate how a group of researchers from the University of Vermont, Tufts University, and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University have discovered a brand new form of biological reproduction and how they used this new discovery to create the world’s first self-replicating living robots.
