With technology scaling, on-chip power dissipation and off-chip memory bandwidth have become significant performance bottlenecks in virtually all computer systems, from mobile devices to supercomputers. An effective way of improving performance in the face of bandwidth and power limitations is to rely on associative memory systems. Recent work on a(More)
Developing ontologies to account for the complexity of biological systems requires the time intensive collaboration of many participants with expertise in various fields. While each participant may contribute to construct a list of terms for ontology development, no objective methods have been developed to evaluate how relevant each of these terms is to the(More)
Novel spin torque transfer magnetic tunnel junction (STT-MTJ) based memory cell topologies are introduced to improve both the sense margin and the current ratio observed by the sense circuitry. These circuits utilize an additional transistor per cell in either a diode connected or gate connected manner and maintain leakage current immunity within the data(More)
STUDY DESIGN A comprehensive systematic review of the literature. OBJECTIVES To assess the modern literature on the use of polyethylene mesh-contained morcelized allograft (PMCMA) bone for spinal fusion and vertebral compression fracture management. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA There are presently no systematic reviews of PMCMA. METHODS A systematic(More)
— A field-assisted spin-torque transfer magnetoresis-tive RAM (STT-MRAM) cache is presented for the use in high-performance energy-efficient microprocessors. Adding field assistance reduces the switching latency by a factor of 4. An array model is developed to evaluate the switching energy for different field currents and array sizes. Several STT-MRAM-based(More)
Scientists model physical phenomena by means of computer simulations that typically require iteratively solving large systems of linear equations. We discuss a novel method of solving these systems by exploiting recently developed mem-ristor technology. The proposed approach results in a 1500 × improvement in computational runtime, and an 8 .5 × reduction(More)
