In the Technion ASIC2 Research Group we investigate the implications of emerging technologies in Computer Architecture, VLSI Systems, and Integrated Circuit Design. In the context of this research, resistive switching devices such as Resistive RAM (RRAM), Spin-Transfer Torque Magnetoresistance RAM (STT-MRAM), Phase Change Memory (PCM), 3D Xpoint, and more, best known as memristors, are used for various applications, such as energy-efficient architectures, memory design, logic circuits, analog and mixed-signal circuits, hardware security, neuromorphic and cytomorphic computing.
ASIC2 is also very much involved in developing simulators, device models, and tools for computer-aided design.
