We are conducting collaborative research with Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems, Tohoku University(“CIES”), owners of the basic technology of AI processors with spintronics technology (STT-MRAM, etc.).
The purpose of this collaborative research is to conduct research and development to ensure the reliability of next-generation memory and provide application software for next-generation semiconductor memory AI processors.
We expect this research will provide software technology (Firmware: FW, Middleware: MW, applications) on a new computer architecture with spintronics technology, becoming the basis for our next generation AI processors.
We will use this technology to contract software development work for our customers.
 A data processing unit in the main body of a computer. It refers to the arithmetic unit and control unit. The main body of a computer is also called a central processing unit (CPU). Similarly, a processor optimized for AI is called an AI processor.
 A technology for engineering and applying both the charge and spin of electrons in a solid-state material. It has a wide range of applications, which can contribute to large-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs) and energy conservation, as well as non-volatile memory (which can store data without being constantly powered on).
 Firmware (FW) is a type of software built into computers, etc., that is responsible for the basic control of the internal circuits and devices of the main unit. Middleware (MW) is a type of software, located between an operating system (OS) and application software, that provides functions commonly used by various software programs.
