Emerging Models of Computation
DescriptionProcessing in-memory breaks von-Neumann based constructs to accelerate data-intensive applications. Noteworthy efforts have been devoted to executing Boolean logic using digital in-memory computing. The limitation of state-of-the-art paradigms is that they heavily rely on repeatedly switching the state of the non-volatile resistive devices using expensive WRITE operations. In this paper, we propose a new in-memory computing paradigm called path-based computing for evaluating Boolean logic. Computation within the paradigm is performed using a one-time expensive compile phase and a fast and efficient evaluation phase. The key property of the paradigm is that the execution phase only involves cheap READ operations.
