PhD Student/ Research Assistant (f/m/d) in Robust Computation in Memory (CIM) based on emerging memristive technologies


Institut für Technische Informatik (ITEC)


Computation in Memory (CIM) is a new computing paradigm which tries to perform operations directly in the memory to avoid costly data trasnfer between the memory and processor subsystems oft he computing architecture, leading to significant saving of energy and latency of computing in big data applications. In this project memory centric paradigms based on emerging memristive technologies will be explored. The main focus would be micro architecture level design by abstracting device and circuit level designs of CIM primitives and their nonidealities (variations and failures) to the microarchitecture level and perform analysis on memory centric applications (such as hyper dimensional computing, deep learning, scientific computation, etc). Also various reliability improvement approaches at circuit, architecture and application levels will be explored and quantified with the CIM analysis framework.
