Spintronic technology uses electric spin instead of charge as the information carrier and has emerged as a promising candidate due to its potential for non-volatility, low energy consumption, high performance, and ease of integration with CMOS technology. In this seminar, we will discuss our work in exploring the application of spintronic technology to the areas of logic (Boolean and non-Boolean), embedded non-volatile memories, and future computational paradigms. We will present some of our latest results in exploring skyrmionic devices, which has interesting implications for wave-based computations.

Dr. Kelvin Fong Xuanyao received his B.Sc. with distinction and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA in 2006 and 2014, respectively. His primary research interests include robust memory design methodologies for post-CMOS technologies, post-CMOS circuit architectures, and device-circuit-architecture co-design for nano-scale CMOS and post-CMOS technologies.
Since December 2016, Dr. Kelvin Fong is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He worked as an Intern Engineer with the Global Circuits Group (Bulldozer) at Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Boxborough Design Center in Massachusetts from January 2007 to August 2007. He was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant supervised by Prof. Kaushik Roy in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN from September 2014 to May 2015. He then joined the Institute of Microelectronics at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, as a Research Scientist in June 2015.
Dr. Fong was the recipient of the “AMD Design Excellence Award” at Purdue in 2008.
