The vision of CHIRON is to complement and, in the long term, replace CMOS by spin wave computing circuits.

The CHIRON objectives:

  • Development of magnetoelectric and multiferroic nanoresonators as spin wave transducers. 

  • Development of spin wave waveguides with sub-micrometre wavelengths. 

  • Demonstration of logic inverters as well as three-input majority gates based on the magnetoelectric and multiferroic transducers and waveguides.

  • Demonstration of frequency multiplexing in these devices.

  • Design of hybrid spin wave–CMOS circuits and benchmarking against standard CMOS using calibrated compact models of transducers and logic gates as well as interconnects.
