MNEMOSENE is an ambitious Research and Innovation Action addressing the theme "Development of new approaches to scale functional performance of information processing and storage substantially beyond the state-of-the-art technologies with a focus on ultra-low power and high performance" of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 ICT research and innovation programme.
MNEMOSENE will focus on the development, design and demonstration of a Computation-In-Memory (CIM) architecture based on extending arrays of non-volatile resistive switching devices (memristors) with logic functionality inside or around the cell array. CIM architectures allow integration of information processing and storage at the same physical location, having the potential to (a) eliminate the communication and memory bottleneck, (b) support massive parallelism to increase the overall performance, (c) drastically enhance energy efficiency, and (d) be cheaper to manufacture. Development of such a radically innovative computing architecture will be a real breakthrough, enabling the solution of many computational problems in minutes rather than days at affordable energy and cost, resulting in orders of magnitude increase in performance.
Coordinated by Delft Technical University (NL), the project consortium includes eight other partners from six different countries: Eindhoven University of Technology and IMEC (NL), ETH Zurich and IBM Research – Zurich (CH), Arm (UK), RWTH Aachen University (DE), INRIA (FR) and Intelligentsia Consultants (LU).
The MNEMOSENE Project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 780215.
