Imec brings magnetic domain wall devices closer to industrial reality

Unique design enables full electrical control, paving the way to both logic and memory nano-device operation


Magnetic domain wall devices have attracted great attention as a promising beyond-CMOS device concept for functional scaling. The spintronics-based technology could provide a platform where both logic and memory might connect, holding promise for logic-in memory computing as well. 

In this article, Eline Raymenants, Van Dai Nguyen and Inge Asselberghs present a unique device concept that provides full electrical control – thereby overcoming the practical hurdles for making CMOS-compatible nanoscale domain wall devices.  

Their work is reviewed in a 2021 invited IEDM paper, which provides an additional outlook towards realizing industry-relevant complex domain wall logic circuits.
