Innovative PM2.5 monitoring data fusion technology published to the top journal of environmental science field by the team of NCU
Under the guidance of Dr. Lin, Yuan-Chien — an Associate Professor from the Department of Civil Engineering, the team including postgraduates Chi, Wan-Ju and Lin, Yong-Qing from Hydrological and Environmental Informatics Laboratory integrated the application of Internet of Things (IoT) and spatiotemporal big data analysis, and developed novel data fusion technology to provide high spatiotemporal resolution PM2.5 concentration information. The results were published in a top SCI international journal "Environment International" in the field of environmental science.
A New Type of Memory Developed by Research Team at Dept. of Electrical Engineering—Research Results Covered by 2021 Symposia on VLSI Technology
The research team led by Assistant Professor E Ray Hsieh in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at NCU has developed a new type of three-dimensional Fe Fin Field-Effect Transistor (FeFinFET) NVM, which is highly efficient and energy-saving. It can operate under 3V and take only 80 nanoseconds to complete operation. Furthermore, it has a linear-tuning window of conductance that is 30,000 times wider (Fig. 2), its continual endurance cycles exceeded one million times (Fig. 3), and it has the ideal activation function of AI (Fig. 4). These characteristics make FeFinFET NVMs very suitable for highly dense storage with multi-bit-per-cell capacity and AI inference applications based on in-memory computing. This research has been selected by an international flagship conference—2021 Symposia on VLSI Technology—to be covered in its Focus Session.
