Jong-Hyeok Yoon, Muya Chang, and Arijit Raychowdhury (Georgia Institute of Technology) recently won the best regular paper award at the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) 2021. The conference was held virtually on April 25-30, 2021.

The award-winning paper is the result of collaboration between ASCENT students and TSMC. The title of the paper is “A 40nm 100Kb 118.44TOPS/W Ternary-weight Compute-in-Memory RRAM Macro with Voltage-sensing Read and Write Verification for Reliable Multi-bit RRAM Operation.” The paper explores the explosive growth of memory-centric workloads, from artificial intelligence to graph processing to data-analytics, and has necessitated research and development of next-generation memory sub-systems. In particular, resistive RAM (RRAM) has emerged as a promising candidate because of its high density, high read speed, and non-volatility.

The IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference is the world's premier conference devoted to IC development.
