The Ising machine is an unconventional computing architecture that can be used to solve NP-hard combinatorial optimization problems more efficiently than traditional von Neumann architectures. Fast, compact oscillator networks which provide programmable connectivities among arbitrary pairs of nodes are highly desirable for the development of practical oscillator-based Ising machines. Here we propose using an electrically coupled array of GHz spin Hall nano-oscillators to realize such a network… 


Analog Coupled Oscillator Based Weighted Ising Machine
An analog computing system with coupled non-linear oscillators which is capable of solving complex combinatorial optimization problems using the weighted Ising model is reported, and scaling analysis suggests that large coupled oscillator networks may be used to solve computationally intensive problems faster and more efficiently than conventional algorithms.

Combinatorial optimization problems belong to the non-deterministic polynomial time (NP)-hard complexity class, and their computational requirements scale exponentially with problem size. They can be
Coupled Spin-Torque Nano-Oscillator-Based Computation
An in-depth analysis of how the “self-organizing” ability of coupled STNO array can be effectively used for computations that are unsuitable or inefficient in the von-Neumann computing domain is provided.

A coherent Ising machine for 2000-node optimization problems
It is shown that an optical processing approach based on a network of coupled optical pulses in a ring fiber can be used to model and optimize large-scale Ising systems, and a coherent Ising machine outperformed simulated annealing in terms of accuracy and computation time for a 2000-node complete graph.
Integration of GMR-based spin torque oscillators and CMOS circuitry
This paper demonstrates the integration of giant magnetoresistance (GMR) spin torque oscillators (STO) with dedicated high frequency CMOS circuits. The wire-bonding-based integration approach is
