Research Bits: March 22

Securing wireless communications without encryption Researchers from Princeton University, University of Michigan–Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute, and Xi’an Jiaotong University developed a millimeter-wave wireless chip that allows secure wireless transmissions and makes it challenging to eavesdrop on high-frequency wireless transmissions, even with multiple colluding bad acto... » read more

NN-Baton: DNN Workload Orchestration & Chiplet Granularity Exploration for Multichip Accelerators

"Abstract—The revolution of machine learning poses an unprecedented demand for computation resources, urging more transistors on a single monolithic chip, which is not sustainable in the Post-Moore era. The multichip integration with small functional dies, called chiplets, can reduce the manufacturing cost, improve the fabrication yield, and achieve die-level reuse for different system scales... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: July 3

2D straintronics Researchers at the University of Rochester and Xi’an Jiaotong University dug into how 2D materials behave when stretched to push the boundaries of what they can do. "We're opening up a new direction of study," says Stephen Wu, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and physics at Rochester. "There's a huge number of 2D materials with different properti... » read more
