Papers at IEDM 2020 Explore Ways to Leverage 3D Technology's Strengths For Lowering Device Energy Consumption and Energy Lost in Data Transmission. CEA-Leti presented two papers this week at IEDM 2020 that confirm the advantages of combining 3D architectures and resistive-random-access-memories (RRAM) for in-memory computing (IMC), and their applications for Edge-AI and neural networks. The projects were designed to look at different ways to leverage 3D's strengths in lowering device energy consumption as well as energy lost during data transfer.
Invited paper at IEDM 2020 shows benefit of CEA-List’s architectures in co-optimizing CEA-Leti’s 3D toolbox to enable higher bandwidth & heterogeneity for high-performance processors.
CEA-Leti will unveil its latest scientific results in 3D sequential integration for neural networks, 3D RRAM for in-memory computing and GaN-on-Si for power electronics at IEDM 2020, Dec. 12-16. The event will be held virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic.Institute scientists are lead authors on four papers and contributing authors on five more that will be presented during the conference.
What’s new: CEA-Leti today announced a new collaboration with Intel on advanced 3D and packaging technologies for processors to advance chip design. The research will focus on assembly of smaller chiplets.,, optimizing interconnection technologies between the different elements of microprocessors, and on new bonding and stacking technologies for3D ICs, especially for making high performance computing (HPC) applications.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
