Ameer Haj Ali will present “Efficient Algorithms for in-Memory Fixed-Point Multiplication Using Magic” by Ameer Haj-Ali, Rotem Ben-Hur, Nimrod Wald, and Shahar Kvatinsky at ISCAS 2018 (“The International Symposium on Circuits and Systems” – the flagship conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems) on May 27-30 in Florence, Italy.
“Efficient Algorithms for in-Memory Fixed-Point Multiplication Using Magic” abstract:
In this paper, we propose algorithms for performing fixed point multiplication within the memristive memory using Memristor Aided Logic (MAGIC) gates and execute them in a cycle-accurate simulator to verify and evaluate them. Previously proposed implementations were not feasible for execution within a memory because the required number of memory cells for the computation was too large to fit with the size-limited memristive memory arrays. The algorithms proposed in this paper, not only improve the latency as compared to previously proposed algorithms by 1.8X on average, but their significantly better area efficiency now makes it possible to perform numerous fixed point multiplications simultaneously within memristive memory arrays.
