Abstract

Edge computing requires highly energy efficient microprocessor units with embedded non-volatile memories to process data at IoT sensor nodes. Ferroelectric non-volatile memory devices are fast, low power and high endurance, and could greatly enhance energy-efficiency and allow flexibility for finer grain logic and memory. This paper will describe the basics of ferroelectric devices for both hysteretic (non-volatile memory) and negative capacitance (steep slope switch) devices, and then project how these can be used in low-power logic cell architectures and fine-grain logic-in-memory (LiM) circuits.
