Circuit architectures: Logic-in memory computing

New kind of architectures, free from the limitations of the Von Neumann model are studied. Logic-In-Memory architectures are circuits where logic and memory are merged into one single entity. Parallelization, memory locality, and 3-dimensionality are instead exploited to design circuits where memory is physically located and distributed near the logic units.

Such architectures allows to overcome the limitation of standard circuits, reducing power consumption while at the same time improving performance.

Logic-In-Memory architectures can be embedded inside standard microprocessors, like RISC-V, as dedicated accelerators or as memory replacement, to greatly enhance the performance of the system.
