Energy-Efficient Computing: from Devices to Architectures (E2CDA)
A comprehensive and collaborative approach is taken to maximize the potential for successfully identifying and implementing revolutionary solutions to break through the bottleneck of energy-constrained computational performance. Programmers, system architects, circuit designers, chip processing engineers, material scientists, and computational chemists all explore these new paths together to co-design an optimal solution path.
Under the E2CDA program there exists two Centers and numerous projects, both collaborative and individual.
- Antiferromagnetic Magneto-electric Memory and Logic Center (AMML)
- Peter Dowben (University of Nebraska/Lincoln)
- Probabilistic Spin Logic for Low-Energy Boolean and Non-Boolean Computing (CAPSL)
- Joerg Appenzeller (Purdue University)
- Durable, Energy-Efficient, Pausable Processing in Polymorphic Memories (DEEP3M)
- Huili Xing (Cornell University)
- Additional collaborative and individual research
NEW materials for LogIc, Memory and InTerconnectS (NEWLIMITS)
The NEW LIMITS Center has a vertically integrated mission to develop synthesis, integration, and evaluation schemes for new materials that will be applied in unique logic, memory, and interconnect applications to enable novel computing and storage paradigms beyond the capabilities of conventional CMOS.
Spintronic Materials for Advanced Information Technologies (SMART)
The SMART Center mission accelerates the development of beyond-CMOS building blocks with advanced spintronic materials and devices to create new pathways for exponential scaling across multiple generations.
Innovative Materials and Processes for Accelerated Compute Technologies (IMPACT)
The IMPACT Center is based on computational modeling and synergistic experimentation. Interconnect research will range from materials implementable in the medium term to materials exhibiting novel carrier transport physics such as liner-free, oxide- and non-oxide-based topological metals.
