Challenges in Circuits and Systems for Emerging Memory Based Energy-Efficient Intelligent Electronics
Memory has become one of the bottlenecks in the development of intelligent computing systems with high bandwidth and low energy consumption. This seminar will address trends in the development of emerging memory, including resistive RAM (ReRAM), STT-MRAM, and phase-change memory (PCM) for intelligent electronics. The fundamental circuits of nonvolatile memory (NVM) and eNVM will be introduced. This seminar will explore the challenges faced by researchers in the circuit designs, circuit-device-interaction, and architecture-circuit interactions for emerging memory. The 2nd part of this seminar will explore the implementation of emerging memory beyond conventional memory applications, such as nonvolatile-logics (nvLogics), nonvolatile processors, and neuromorphic computing for deep learning and artificial intelligent (AI) chips.
