BEOL technology platform based on ferroelectric synaptic devices for advanced neuromorphic processors

Project description

High-tech platform for advanced data processing

Processing the rising amount of data in today’s electronic devices requires a shift from a compute-centric to a more data-centric paradigm. To address the problem of limited data transfer rates, the concept of physical separation between computing and memory units needs to be rejected. Neuro-inspired architectures are a promising solution in which logic and memory functionality are combined in one synaptic unit. Using this idea, the EU-funded BeFerroSynaptic project aims to develop electronic synaptic devices based on a power-efficient memory technology called ferroelectric polarisation switching. The project’s ferrosynaptic technology platform will feature back-end-of-line integrated Hf(Zr)O2-based ferroelectric field-effect transistors and ferroelectric tunnelling junctions. The project’s achievements will open the way to more efficient data processing.
