New FDSOI-based integrated circuit architectures sensitive to light for imaging applications
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0130
It was recently demonstrated that FDSOI (Fully-Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator) transistors electrical characteristics can be sensitive to light illumination provided a diode is monolithically integrated below the BOX (Buried Oxide). In particular the transistor threshold voltage (VT) is significantly tuned by light illumination with this architecture, potentially enabling highly integrated new functions like light detection for More Than Moore applications.
Hardware support for interprocess communications in multi-core circuits
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0005
This study aims at improving the performances of synchronization primitives (barriers, distributed mutexes, etc.) in multicore integrated circuits, by offering architectural improvements for transport of synchronization messages, and hardware/software accelerators for the most performance-constrained primitives.
Event-based, bio-inspired coding and unsupervised learning for Deep Neural Networks, using artificial synapses
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0102
The last couple of years have seen a renewed interest in deep learning and deep neural networks (DNNs). Advances in hardware and in particular the use of high-end graphic processing units (GPUs) have enabled the realization of large and powerful networks , that are the first pattern recognizers capable of human-competitive performances on handwritten characters recognition, traffic signs recognition or face recognition .
Controlled iCVD: towards the realization of block copolymers and localized functionalization by CVD
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0137
iCVD (for initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition) is a new technique allowing the functionalization of substrates with polymer thin films. This deposition technique can be performed at room temperature on delicate surfaces such as paper, textiles or stacks sensitive to temperature or solvent (for example NEMS or organic materials). However, due to the high reactivity of carbon radicals, the growth of the macromolecular chains obtained by this technique remain difficult to control.
