What Quantum Batteries Have in Store


Quantum battery technology is approaching an inflection point similar to the one quantum computing crossed a decade or so ago, escalating it from a theoretical curiosity to an engineering challenge worth solving. Quantum batteries exploit the strange physical laws of the very small — the quantum world — to gain performance advantages over classical batteries. Recent research on charging ... » read more

A Methodology for Automatic eFPGA redaction


New academic paper titled "ALICE: An Automatic Design Flow for eFPGA Redaction" from researchers at Politecnico di Milano, New York University, University of Calgary, and the University of Utah. Abstract "Fabricating an integrated circuit is becoming unaffordable for many semiconductor design houses. Outsourcing the fabrication to a third-party foundry requires methods to protect the intell... » read more

Technical Paper Round-Up: March 29


Improving batteries, ultra low-power photonic edge computing, SLAM, Tellurium for 2D semiconductors, and reservoir computing top the past week's technical papers. The focus on energy is critical as the edge buildout continues and more devices are connected to a battery, while research into new architectures and materials that will continue scaling and improve performance per watt continue at th... » read more

Experimental photonic quantum memristor


Abstract "Memristive devices are a class of physical systems with history-dependent dynamics characterized by signature hysteresis loops in their input–output relations. In the past few decades, memristive devices have attracted enormous interest in electronics. This is because memristive dynamics is very pervasive in nanoscale devices, and has potentially groundbreaking applications ranging... » read more

Inverse Design of Inflatable Soft Membranes Through Machine Learning


Abstract "Across fields of science, researchers have increasingly focused on designing soft devices that can shape-morph to achieve functionality. However, identifying a rest shape that leads to a target 3D shape upon actuation is a non-trivial task that involves inverse design capabilities. In this study, a simple and efficient platform is presented to design pre-programmed 3D shapes starting... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: Nov. 24


Tiny MEMS gyroscope CEA-Leti and Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) have developed the world’s smallest MEMS gyroscope. Based on a nano-resistive sensing technology, the gyroscope enables a navigation-grade performance with a sensor footprint of only 1.3mm2. The tiny gyroscope is targeted for high-volume markets like automotive and others. The technology was reported in a paper, entitled “1... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: July 21


Intel’s next-gen MRAM At the recent 2020 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits, Intel presented a paper on a CMOS-compatible spin-orbit torque MRAM (SOT-MRAM) device. Still in R&D, SOT-MRAM is a next-generation MRAM designed to replace SRAM. Generally, processors integrate a CPU, SRAM and a variety of other functions. SRAM stores instructions that are rapidly needed by the processo... » read more
