The spOt project

spOt (spin Orbit torque memory for cache & multicore processor applications) is a Research and Development project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

spOt has been submitted to the EC within the ICT Program, call 2011, strategic objective 2011.3.1 (a) which deadline was on January 17th. The consortium has applied for a small size project (STREP).

The goal of spOt project is to introduce non-volatile fast memories in the core of the processors in order to develop a new class of power efficient and scalable microprocessors.

Strategic objectives addressed

  • Demonstrate the relevance of SOT-MRAM for low power, ultra high speed and reliable non-volatile memory applications.
  • Explore the potential of embedded SOT-MRAM for normally off / instant on advanced micro processors, paving the way towards green electronics.
  • Propose a novel hybrid embedded processor architecture with hybrid memory hierarchy to show systemability of the technology.
  • Implement a stand-alone memory test chip to show integrability and manufacturability of the technology.
