“Spintronics-based hybrid integrated circuits” Proff. M. Lanuzza- R. De Rose – inizio 10.01.2017

“Spintronics-based hybrid integrated circuits” Proff. M.Lanuzza- R. De Rose


Il Corso si terrà presso la Sala Seminari del DIMES, nei giorni:

10-13 Gennaio 2017, ore 9:00 – 12:00


This course focuses on hybrid magnetic/CMOS circuits, which exploit the characteristics of both CMOS and spintronic technologies for better speed, power consumption and area. The course introduces the basics of spintronics and some spintronic devices, including magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) which are considered as one of the most promising candidates for the next generation of non-volatile memories and logic modules. The course also addresses the MTJ/CMOS co-integration and the simulation/design methodology for spintronics-based hybrid logic and memory circuits.

Marco Lanuzza received the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the “Mediterranea” University of Reggio Calabria, Reggio Calabria, Italy, in 2005. He has been an Assistant Professor with the University of Calabria, Cosenza, Italy, since 2006. His research interests include ultra-low power CMOS digital and analog design, arithmetic circuits, reconfigurable computing and the design of digital and analog circuits in emerging technologies.

Raffaele De Rose received the Ph.D. degree in Psychology of Programming and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Calabria in 2012. He was a Research Fellow with the Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems for Information and Communication Technologies “E. De Castro” (ARCES), University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, from 2010 to 2013. He is currently with DIMES, University of Calabria, Rende, Italy. His research interests include the modeling of semiconductor devices and the design of ultra-low power CMOS digital and analog circuits.
