Welcome to the Nanoscale Computing Fabrics Laboratory at the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. This group is led by Prof. Csaba Andras Moritz. Our research addresses the fundamental problem of how to realize computation with nanotechnology. Our focus is on post-CMOS nanoscale fabrics and associated models of computation, based on emerging nanodevices (nanowire, spintronics, and graphene) and novel nanomanufacturing paradigms. We follow a 'fabric-centric' mindset - an integrated approach across various design levels (architecture, circuits, devices and manufacturing at nanoscale), leveraging the unique properties of new nanomaterials/nanodevices/physical phenomena. We do experimental (Cleanroom) work in addition to detailed cross-layer theoretical exploration.
Ongoing work ranges across 3-D fine-grained integrated circuits for post-CMOS digital logic, non-Von Neumann architectures for probabilistic Bayesian and neuromorphic computation with nanotechnology. Earlier projects included 2D nanowire fabrics for logic and memory (NASICs, N3ASICs, NWRAM), Spin-Wave Functions and Hybrid Graphene-CMOS multistate memory.
