SRC patents continue to soar as JUMP’s first patent issues
Over the past 35 years, SRC research has generated more than 700 patents focused on driving progress in the microelectronics industry. We are excited to announce SRC's newest patent, Methods, Circuits, Systems, and Articles of Manufacture for State Machine Interconnect Architecture using Embedded DRAM (US 10,580,481).

This invention was an idea conceived at the University of Virginia by the team of Rahimi, Sadredini, Skadron, and Stan, representing the JUMP Center for Research on Intelligent Storage and Processing-in-memory research.
Joint University Microelectronics Program, or JUMP, supports long-term research focused on high performance, energy efficient microelectronics for end-to-end sensing and actuation, signal and information processing, communication, computing, and storage solutions that are cost-effective and secure. JUMP has 20 patent applications in prosecution with the USPTO and 10 patent applications being drafted.
SRC members are the first to learn about important discoveries like this, getting access to journal papers 60 days before they are published. In addition to early access to research findings, relevant members are granted non-exclusive royalty free license to these university-owned patents. SRC members have the freedom to practice results from which they sponsored. With few claims to combat, SRC patents are often issued quickly, which is one indicator of the novelty of our researchers and their innovations.
