The NEUROTEC project progresses, develops RRAM-based neuromorphic computer structures
The project NEUROTEC (â€œNeuro-inspired artificial intelligence technologies for the electronics of the futureâ€) was launched in November 2019 to develop innovative "Beyond von Neumann" concepts for highly energy-efficient devices. The two-year project shows the great potential of a future neuromorphic computer.
The project aims to fuse two major technologies - machine learning and artificial neural networks (ANNs) and memristive materials and devices - especially redox-based RRAM and phase change memories (PCM). The project's mandate is to develop a full-range of basic technologies ranging from dedicated material deposition technologies, integration technologies, measurement technologies, the development of simulation and modelling tools, up to the design and realization of novel AI circuits.
