Neural-PIM: Efficient Processing-In-Memory with Neural Approximation of Peripherals
Published: Jan 30, 2022
Processing-in-memory (PIM) architectures have demonstrated great potential in accelerating numerous deep learning tasks. Particularly, resistive random-access memory (RRAM) devices provide a promising hardware substrate to build PIM accelerators due to their abilities to realize efficient in-situ vector-matrix multiplications (VMMs). However, existing PIM accelerators suffer from frequent and energy-intensive analog-to-digital (A/D) conversions,...
