Architectural Innovations Inspired by Ferroelectric Devices
Werner-Hartmann-Bau, Room WHB 205 , Nöthnitzer Straße 66 , 01187 Dresden
The ability to integrate ferro-electric devices closely with traditional CMOS fabric has inspired new architectural innovations. In this talk, I will showcase some of our recent efforts in this area including the design self-powered systems based on non-volatile processors, the design of reconfigurable fabrics for security and dynamic application adaptation and the design of hybrid memory/cache systems. Our work emphasizes unique opportunities in leveraging cross-layer design from devices to architectures.
