Memristive devices for computing: circuits, architectures and applications

Speaker: Said Hamdioui, Delft University of Technology

Both today’s computer architectures and device technologies (used to manufacture them) are facing major challenges making them incapable to deliver the required functionalities and features. Computers are facing the three well-known walls, which are the memory wall, the instruction level parallelism wall, and the power wall. Meanwhile, nanoscale CMOS technology also faces three walls, which are the reliability wall, the leakage wall, and the cost wall. All of these have led to the slowdown of the traditional device scaling. Thus, alternative computing architectures and notions have to be explored in the light of emerging new device technologies. In this session/tutorial, we will explore the potential of memristor devices (as emerging devices) for enabling a new computing paradigm, called “computation-in-memory” (as an alternative architecture), covering the topics of the memory, logic design, and computing with memristive devices.
