Title: Li-ion synaptic transistor for low power analog computing

Nonvolatile redox transistors (NVRTs) based upon Li-ion battery materials are demonstrated as memory elements for neuromorphic computer architectures with multi-level analog states, “write” linearity, low-voltage switching, and low power dissipation. Simulations of back propagation using the device properties reach ideal classification accuracy. Finally, physics-based simulations predict energy costs per “write” operation of <10 aJ when scaled to 200 nm × 200 nm.
