Abstract

A number of beyond-CMOS devices are inherently non-volatile such that they can retain their states in the absence of power. Non-volatility has been well studied for building memory components. Besides retaining states for prolonged time as storage, can non-volatile devices offer other benefits for information processing? If yes, where, how and by how much? In this talk, I will use representative spin-based and ferroelectric-based devices (specifically, All-Spin Logic (ASL), Composite-Input Magnetoelectric-based Logic Technology (CoMET) and Ferroelectric Field Effect Transistor (FeFET)) to demonstrate how non-volatility can be exploited for information processing. I will provide our non-volatile processor benchmarking results for ASL and CoMET as well as novel designs of non-volatile fine-grained logic-in-memory circuits based on FeFETs.
