WEB Interoperable solutions for the simulation of phase change memories

Part of:

The current and major worldwide drive for big data, machine learning, and quantum computing will push away from traditional all-silicon platforms, and provide a clean slate for industry to rapidly deploy novel technologies based on innovative materials and devices. This requires fast exploration of materials’ properties (e.g. memory effects for memristive computing), linking properties to performance in unexplored architectures, and assessing their business potential. Here, we present an interoperable material-to-device simulation scheme for characterization and design of synaptic electronics for neuromorphic computing. This solution is based on the integration of first-principles materials modelling approaches and modelling software for emerging devices, fully compliant with a vision of semantic interoperability, driven by standardized ontologies. In particular, we investigate the switching mechanisms in amorphous chalcogenide materials, proposed for non-volatile memory devices and selectors.
