Features

Under the project "Research and Development of Ultra-low Power Spintronics- based VLSIs" (core researcher : Hideo Ohno) supported by JSPS's FIRST, the Center for Spintronics Integrated Systems (CSIS) aims to overcome the performance ceiling by power consumption increase and interconnection delay in logic integrated circuits. We lead the world in spintronics technology through our design and fabrication of spintronics-based CMOS logic integrated circuits, and by demonstrating ultra-low power and high performance potential through the use of 30nm-diameter spintronics devices which are non-volatile, high speed, and highly reliable.


Targeted Application(s)/Industry

Very large logic integrated circuits, where intelligent systems are integrated on a single chip die, are the key technology not only for information communication systems but also for energy systems and other infrastructure in modern society. The CSIS research aims at developing spintronics technology through collaboration among industry, universities, and government laboratories.
