Circuit and System-Level Aspects of Phase Change Memory
Phase Change Memory (PCM) is a new nonvolatile memory technology that promises to disrupt current big data applications and even create entirely new ones. This is because it can serve as both fast storage and large memory, which is out of reach for incumbent memory technologies. This tutorial focuses on recent technological developments and system-level concepts for the realization of PCM-based systems. We also discuss new circuits and architectures that enable novel applications of PCM in big data analytics and hardware for artificial intelligence.
