FORMS: Fine-grained Polarized ReRAM-based In-situ Computation for Mixed-signal DNN Accelerator

Abstract: "Recent work demonstrated the promise of using resistive random access memory (ReRAM) as an emerging technology to perform inherently parallel analog domain in-situ matrix-vector multiplication—the intensive and key computation in deep neural networks (DNNs). One key problem is the weights that are signed values. However, in a ReRAM crossbar, weights are stored as conductance of... » read more
