Nanoelectronic Computing Research

An Chen, Director

Explore fundamental materials, devices, and interconnect solutions to enable future computing and storage paradigms beyond conventional CMOS, beyond von Neumann architecture, or beyond classical information processing/storage.

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. 

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.
