Computation-In-Memory Architectures based on NV devices: Opportunities and Challenges

Plenary Session Summary:

Emerging applications are extremely demanding in terms of storage, computing power and energy efficiency. On the other hand, both today’s computer architectures and device technologies are facing major challenges making them incapable to deliver the required functionalities and features at economical affordable cost. In order for computing systems to continue deliver sustainable benefits for the foreseeable future society, alternative computing architectures and notions have to be explored in the light of emerging new device technologies.
This talk addresses the potential, design, and test of Computation-in-memory architecture based on non-volatile (NV) devices such as ReRAM, PCM and STT-MRAM. First, the talk briefly explains the limitation of both CMOS scaling and today’s computing architectures. Then it classifies the sate-of-the art computer architectures and highlight how the trends is going toward computation-in-memory (CIM) architectures in order to eliminated and/or significantly reduces the limitations of today’s technologies. The concept of CIM based on NV devices is discussed, and logic and arithmetic circuit designs using such devices and how they enable such architectures are covered; data measurements are shown to demonstrate the CIM concept in silicon. The strong dependency of application domains on the selection of appropriate CIM architecture and its building block, as well as the huge potential of CIM (in realizing order of magnitude improvement in terms of computing and energy efficiency) are illustrated based on some case studies. Moreover, the testing of new non-volatile memories enabling CIM as well as testing of CIM are discussed; it will be demonstrated that traditional approach for fault modeling and test development is incapable to deal with realistic defects in emerging CIM devices (e.g., ReRAM and STT-MRAM based), and a new approach called Device Aware Test (DAT) will be covered. Industrial data are presented to show that DAT sensitizes realistic faults as well as new unique defects and faults that can never be caught with the traditional approach. Finally the research directions in different aspects of computation-in-memory are highlighted.

Keynote 2

Nanotech-powered Self-Powered Wearable and Flexible Devices

Plenary Session Summary:

Wearable and Implantable technologies will underpin new solutions to human health problems with their considerable capacity in boosting the acquisition, management, and usage of health information. These developed devices need to be highly flexible amenable with the skin and organs with biocompatibility without any intervention to human activities. These attributes can be achieved with the advancement in nanofabrication and materials synthesis. In this context, various simple, cost-effective and turnkey strategies have been developed by fusing textile and polymeric carbon-based nanomaterials to attain both flexible and economic wearable sensors for monitoring bodily conditions using biomarkers found in physiological fluids. As these biomedical applications would lead to accurate and enormous data measured by electronic devices, leading to the advent of artificial intelligence and the internet of things that can be integrated with the human body. To realize self-powered and standalone cyber physical system a combo of miniaturized biofuel cells and bio-supercapacitor has been developed which can harvest as well as store energy. The power generated and energy density of such integrated device were sufficient but can be further increased with surface modifications. Overall, such an approach is capable of covering the complete requirement of the flexible bioelectronic devices in the most economic and time efficient manner.
