Gouri Sankar Kar    




Gouri Sankar Kar received the PhD degree in Semiconductor Device Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Khragpur, India in 2002. From 2002 to 2005, he was a visiting scientist at Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany, where he worked with Nobel Laureate (1985, Quantum Hall Effect) Prof. Klaus von Klitzing on Quantum Dot FET. In 2006, he joined Infenion/Qimonda in Dresden, Germany as lead integration engineer. There he worked on vertical transistor for DRAM application.
In 2009, he joined imec, Belgium. Here he contributed in 3DNAND and in different emerging memories before he established Magnetic Memory program in imec in 2012.  He became distinguished member of technical staff since, 2015 and in his role he is leading the different research fronts in the area of different magnetic memories (STT, SOT) and emerging memories (OxRAM, CBRAM, Selectors). He has published over 120 conference and journal papers and holds more than 10 patents. In 2015, he was appointed as coordinator of ECSEL Horizon 2020 project “PRIME” (Ultra Low Power technologies and Memory Architectures for IoT application), where he leads an European consortium working together on different low power technology solutions.

Presentation abstract


Embedded Flash (eFlash) is widely used by various applications because of reducing overall costs of system Development and improve the performance. Continuous evolution of eFlash such as the split-gate charge-trapping memory has satisfied the most stringent quality requirement for automotive and other applications. Smart & sustainable society for a better quality of life would diversify NV memory requirement even further. Data driven computation and the emerging of new computational architecture demand non existing NV embedded memory solution.  Low cost, low power and advance logic compatible emerging memories such as ReRAM and STT-MRAM are made tremendous progress towards those applications. Excellent features of smaller rewrite energy with the extending rewrite cycles could contribute to the outstanding energy saving such as normally-off systems.
