Energy efficiency and design complexity of long-distance on-chip and interchip data links can be a major bottleneck for high-performance computing systems. As a solution, we propose an ultralow energy interconnect design using nanoscale spin-torque switches. In the proposed method, data is transmitted in the form of current pulses with amplitude of the order of microamperes that flow across a small terminal voltage of <;100 mV. Subnanosecond spin-torque switching of scaled nanomagnets (such as… CONTINUE READING
