CESG Fishbowl Seminar: “Emerging RRAM Technologies for Computing and Sensing Applications”

September 14, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

| Free

Dr. Baker Mohammad
Associate Professor, ECE at Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Abstract: Memristor is a type of RRAM that was postulated by Leon Chua in 1971 and was realized as a physical device by HP labs in 2008; this realization spurred a great interest in memristors as a fundamental electronic element. Memristor-based technology is expected to provide much better scalability, higher utilization when used as memory, and overall lower energy consumptions compared to traditional CMOS technology. In addition to utilizing memristor in traditional computing platform, researchers are looking into using MR in Neuromorphic, IN-Memory-Commuting, Hardware accelerator and Sensing applications.

The topic of this seminar will highlight the challenges with existing CMOS technology and will focus on emerging memristor RRAM memory technology and the role they may play in future Analog and Digital electronic system design.
I will elaborate on my group work in the following areas: 1- Memristor modeling, synthesis and sensing application; 2- In-Memory-Computing using memristor; and 3- Describe the different memristors realized by the group and their potential usage in sensing (radiation, glucose) application.

Bio: Dr. Baker Mohammad is currently an Associate Professor at the ECE at Khalifa University and a founding member of Khalifa University Semiconductor Research Center.
