■13:30~13:55 Technical Session <Title> Introduing how to use a big capacites &High pseed memories.. <Abstract> The increase in capacity and speed of DDR and eMMC has been remarkable and has greatly contributed to increasing the processing speed of computers, but when it comes to designing a microcomputer using these, it becomes a big hurdle. Therefore, it is common to use memory modules to avoid these problems, but on-board implementation is essential for miniaturization and low power consumption. However, it is very difficult to clear it in one circuit/PCB design, leading to a significant increase in development time and costs. In the seminar, we will introduce a part of how to clear these things. <Speaker> Tasuku Kashihira ■13:55~14:40 Invited Session <Title> Highly Energy Efficient Nonvolatile FPGAs for AI/IoT <Abstract> Recognition procedure with convolutional neural network (CNN) needs large computational power. FPGA accelerator is suitable for executing CNN especially with binary- or ternary-mode. Non-volatile FPGA with NanoBridge provides high energy efficiency for CNN application in IoT devices. Non-volatility provides in the intermittent operation and the reduction of standby power in the sleep mode of the system. In contrast, for starting up SRAM-based FPGA, it is required to configure the programmable logic bock by streaming the data from the external non-volatile memory. I will introduce an NV-FPGA Initiative where applications of non-volatile FPGA are discussed. <Speaker> Toshitsugu Sakamoto ■14:40~15:05 Technical Session <Title> Introduction of our key technologies and LSI development for future IoT systems - Sensor AFE/PMIC/RFEH/Wake Up Rx LSI for effective sensing and ultra low power achievement in future IoT systems - <Abstract> We will introduce our approach to the development of key technologies and analog mixed-signal LSI for effective sensing and ultra low power achievement which are the most important technologies of IoT systems. We have developed IoT system and will apply our LSI to IoT sensing platform such as Sensor Analog Front End (SAFE) for effective sensing, RF Enargy Harvester (RFEH)/Power Management (PM) to achieve low power consumption, and Wake Up Receiver (WuRx) to realize time interval access and ansynchronus access sensing. These are the key technologies for future IoT systems. We will also introduce our analog LSI design service by using our assets and our current activities to achieve various IoT applications. <Speaker> Naoya Kimura Akira Yoshida ■15:05~15:50 Invited Session <Title> Low Power Spintronics Semiconductor Technology of Tohoku University’s startup for a semiconductor game changer in the carbon-neutral era! <Abstract> In this talk, based on the megatrends in the electronics and automobile industries and so on, I will give an overview of the world's semiconductor strategy trends and introduce the activity of PowerSpin as Tohoku University’s Startup including Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems of Tohoku University. Spintronics based low power semiconductor technology, which is a key technology to solve the dilemma of power consumption and computing performance will be introduced. In particular, I will show and discuss from low power memory technologies such as STT-/SOT-MRAM to low power logic technologies such as IoT microcomputers/AI processors. <Speaker> Tetsuo Endoh ■15:50~16:15 Technical Session <Title> LSI Design Environment with Local Cloud and Open Source EDA. <Abstract> The soaring cost of LSI design environments using commercial EDA tools has made the cost of LSI development itself very expensive. In response, there is a growing movement to develop an LSI design environment that utilizes open source EDA. The advantages and disadvantages of building each environment on the cloud are described below. <Speaker> Yoshio Inoue
