The Computing Systems Group has partnered with colleagues from the Institute for Micro-Electronics (IMECAS), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Xi’an University of Technology (XAUT), and the Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab (EMCL) of Heidelberg University to pursue research on system-level aspects of resistive RAM as emerging memory technology. In this context, a deep collaboration with the Chinese colleagues including mutual research visits and workshops is envisioned. Research will gear to explore the various trade-offs of this memory technology from an application perspective, including scientific-technical computations as well as emerging machine learning tasks, with trade-offs including performance, power consumption, reliability and durability. The project called "Khunjerab: Bridging Applications and Future Emerging Memory for Different Performance-Power-Reliability Trade-Offs” has just received funding by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and DFG (Germany).
