Creating an energy efficient chip, which can classify ECG signals into healthy and arrhythmical using neural networks, was the goal of the first challenge for disruptive innovations in energy-efficient AI hardware initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The Project Team „Low-Power Low-Memory Low-Cost ECG signal analysis using ML algorithms (Lo3-ML)“ under the Leadership of Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fey, Dr. Marc Reichenbach (Chair of Computer Science FAU), Prof. Dr. Dr. Robert Weigel (Chair of Electronics FAU), Dr. Marco Breiling (Fraunhofer IIS Erlangen) and Prof. Amelie Hagelauer (Chair of Communications Electronics, University of Bayreuth) won the first price in the category “ASIC 130 nm”.

Each year, the chair of computer architecture offers the “supercomputing” lab lecture, which serves the purpose of preparing a team of six students to participate in the student cluster competition at ISC. In the competition at ISC18, twelve teams from all over the world competed to get the highest performance out of their self-assembled mini-clusters for a set of applications...

The paper "Memristive Voltage Divider: A Bipolar ReRAM-based Unit for Non-Volatile Flip-Flops" by Mehrdad Biglari and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dietmar Fey has won the "Out Of The Box" award at the Third International Symposium on Memory Systems (MEMSYS 2017) held in Alexandria, VA, USA.

The Chair of Computer Architecture is now member in the "HSA Academic Centers of Excellence" of the HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation. In a joint project with the "Embedded Systems Group" of TU Darmstadt and the chip manufacturer AMD, the chair members Marc Reichenbach and Konrad Hä...
