This chapter reviews recent benchmark results of emerging nanoelectronic devices. Key observations and perspectives from these assessments are discussed. Quantitative benchmark approaches evaluate emerging devices in combinational logic gates (e.g., inverter, NAND-gate, and adder). A survey-based critical assessment has been utilized by the ITRS Emerging Research Device (ERD) group to evaluate emerging devices based on a set of technological and architectural criteria. Key results of both the quantitative benchmark and the critical assessment are summarized in this chapter. A retrospective assessment of emerging devices tracked by the ITRS ERD chapter is provided.
