Circuits and systems for In-memory computing based on phase-change memories

My research activity focuses on the design of integrated circuits and data processing systems with phase-change memories, whose use is particularly promising in the field of in-memory computing. Possible applications of these architectures to neural networks, compressed-sensing and brain computing will also be explored, where standard calculation operations (sums, matrix products and vectors) are required in large quantities. To this purpose, a deep characterization of phase-changing cells will be carried out, in order to allow suitable multilevel-memory operations. This purpose is carried out together with my colleague Andrea Lico.

 

Edge-computing for civil structural monitoring

Structural monitoring is a topic of growing importance and interest, where efficient and low-consumption data processing is gaining increasing importance in the procedures for identifying structural damage. Research activities in collaboration with colleague Said Quqa aim at the implementation of edge-computing techniques based on phase change memories in the context of civil structural monitoring.

 

Ultra-low power circuits for Internet of Things applications

In wireless sensor networks, a typical widespread architecture in the world of the Internet of Things, energy consumption is a fundamental project metric. The research focuses on the design of special ultra-low power integrated receivers, called Wake-up Radio, which allow the management of some communication phases in order to minimize the power consumption of the network nodes on which they are installed. Activities in this field are mainly carried out by colleagues Matteo D'Addato, Alessia M. Elgani and Luca Perilli.
