NABAB, Nanocomputing come of age

NABAB is a collaborative project (STREP) supported by the 7th framework programme for research and technological developpment (FP7). The project aims at studying how to use nano-fabricated components in conjunction with CMOS to devise computing elements that will be able to acquire their functionnality as the result of an adaptation process. The project started in January 2008 for a period of 36 Months. NABAB is coordinated by Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, France.

Scientific publications list updated

The list of scientific contributions of the NABAB partners to the community has just been updated.Several conferences, journal articles and communications have been made public during the past 3 years encompassing all of the technology we have been developing in the project.

Check out what has kept us busy in the publications section of the website!



2100310CT1729_thumbThe NABAB partners organized a special session during the course of the 2010 edition of the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS 2010) held in Paris between 30 May to 2 June 2010. The session entitled “Neuromorphic Nano Devices Adaptive Sensing & processing Systems” took place on June 1st, 2010.


Introducing the Synapstor

In the NAB concept, the learning ability of a NAB block is implemented through the tunable properties of nano-fabricated cells within a neuro-inspired architecture. Up until now we have referred to those critical devices as tunable cells or synapse-like devices, we feel it's time for a more accurate wording and also time to better specify those devices. We will now refer to those devices or cells with the more appropriate term of SYNAPSTOR.
