Experience required : 1 to 4 years
Research position in the framework of the project
UNICO (Unsupervised spiking neural networks with analog memristive devices for edge
computing) supported by the Horizon 2020 FET program of the EU. The hardware of the
UNICO project will take advantage of heterogeneous integration of analog resistive
memories crossbar arrays in the Back End Of Line (BEOL) of CMOS analog/mixed
neurons. This dense, energy efficient and truly parallel architecture will implement the
synaptic connections required by SNNs while LIF neurons will be implemented in CMOS.
The candidate will contribute to design different flavors of analog/mixed neurons
compatible with the different learning rules defined at system level (e.g. Spiking Timing
Dependent Plasticity) constrained by the resistive device feature (TiO2) and will
propose behavioral model (Verilog-A) suitable for system simulation. The neurons
design will also have to integrate configurability to be compliant with different
numbers of input/output synapses and will also embed trimming functions to ease the
adaptation to various RRAM electrical regimes. The candidate will also contribute to
the test of the proposed neurons after manufacturing.
the applicant should have a
Ph.D degree in Electronics Engineering, Electrical Engineering. Solid knowledge in the
area of circuit design (preferentially analog design) is necessary. Any experience in
resistive memory and/or neural network is a plus.
English is mandatory, French is a plus but not mandatory
The candidate will work in the IM2NP laboratory, in the Mémoires team.
