IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Malaysia Chapter are pleased to inform you that a Distinguished Lecture Program (DLP) on “Challenges in Circuits and Systems for Emerging Memory Based Energy-Efficient Intelligent Electronics” will be organised as follows:
Date: 15 November 2018
Time: 3.00pm – 5.30pm.
Venue: CEDEC, Sains@USM, Level 1, Block C, No. 10 Persiaran Bukit Jambul, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Pulau Pinang
Memory has become one of the bottlenecks in the development of intelligent computing systems with high bandwidth and low energy consumption. This seminar will address trends in the development of emerging memory, including resistive RAM (ReRAM), STT- MRAM, and phase-change memory (PCM) for intelligent electronics. The fundamental circuits of nonvolatile memory (NVM) and eNVM will be introduced. This seminar will explore the challenges faced by researchers in the circuit designs, circuit-device- interaction, and architecture-circuit inter- actions for emerging memory. The 2nd part of this seminar will explore the implementation of emerging memory beyond conventional memory applications, such as nonvolatile-logics (nvLogics), nonvolatile processors, and neuromorphic computing for deep learning and artificial intelligent (AI) chips.

Biography of the speaker : Prof Dr Meng-Fan (Marvin) Chang
Prof Chang is a full Professor in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering of National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan. Prof Chang obtained considerable practical industrial experience before joining NTHU in 2006, having spent more than 10 years working in semiconductor industry. Between 1997 and 2006, Prof Chang worked in the development of SRAM/ROM/flash macros/compilers at Mentor Graphics (New Jersey, US), TSMC (Taiwan), and the Intellectual Property Library Company (Taiwan). His research interests include circuit design for volatile and nonvolatile memory, 3D-memory, nonvolatile and spintronics logics, circuit-device- interactions in non-CMOS devices, memristor circuits, computing-in-memory and neuromorphic circuits for deep learning and artificial intelligent (AI) chips. Since 2010, Prof Chang has authored and co-authored more than 40 top conference papers (including 14 ISSCC, 15 VLSI Symposia, 8 IEDM, and 5 DAC) as well as 40+ IEEE journal papers and 40+ US patents. He is an associate editor for IEEE TVLSI, and IEEE TCAD. He has been serving on technical program committees for ISSCC, IEDM (Executive committee, Chair of MT sub-committee), DAC, A-SSCC, IEEE CAS Society (Chair Elect of NG-TC), and numerous international conferences. He is a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) during 2017-2018. He is the recipient of several prestigious national-level awards in Taiwan, including the Outstanding Research Award of MOST-Taiwan, Outstanding Electrical Engineering Professor Award, Ta-You Wu Memorial Award, and Academia Sinica Junior Research Investigators Award.
