ACCESS developed a time-modulated current-based computing-in-memory SRAM macro for executing MAC operations for neural networks. A new generation design of 16Kb SRAM array supporting multi-bit activation, weight, and output was completed and implemented in 40nm CMOS technology. Its performance and energy efficiency are significantly superior to the state-of-the-art and the technology can be used in edge health care and broader AI IoT applications.
Designing modern energy-efficient high-precision AI accelerator that can be put entirely in resource-constrained IoT devices
Specialized AI chips will be a key factor driving the AI revolution. To cope with this emerging demand on hardware, the AI Chip Center for Emerging Smart Systems (ACCESS) is putting Hong Kong on the global map of AI chip and hardware design. ACCESS is a tightly coordinated, multi-disciplinary center for advancing integrated circuit (IC) design technologies to enable novel data-centric computing paradigms supporting a wide range of AI applications. Putting together world-class experts, the Center is focus on the research theme of designing customised AI chips to realise ubiquitous AI applications used throughout society.
The research agenda in ACCESS is organised into four programmes:
