The objective of this program is to build AHaH Computing demonstration chips and boards, establishing in the process the technical frameworks for a memristor wafer services business with the Idaho Microfabrication Laboratory (IML) at Boise State University (BSU), Dr. Kris Campbell at BSU, and other fabrication facilities. We believe that AHaH Computing and kT-RAM offer the most practical and robust solution to achieving integrated machine intelligence. However, there are a number of technologies that will be enabled via a Back-End-Of-Line (BEOL) CMOS Memristor service. Examples include alternate neuromemristive processors, stacked memory-on-top processors, reconfigurable logic, multi-state logic and memory, adaptive filters, physically unclonable devices, and more. Indeed, research into memristive circuits is growing exponentially. Our objective is therefore to create the tools we need to enable a future memristor wafer services business at the same time we demonstrate the last remaining technical milestones of AHaH Computing before chip production.
