We’re proud to announce that Onur Mutlu and colleagues, Benjamin Lee, Engin Ipek, and Doug Burger, received the NVMW 2022 Persistent Impact Prize for their 2009 ISCA paper on Architecting Phase Change Memory as a Scalable DRAM Alternative. The prize was awarded to the ISCA 2009 paper “in recognition of its seminal contribution to understanding how non-volatile memories might replace conventional DRAM. It also played a critical role in introducing Phase Change Memory (PCM) technology to the architecture community, spawning a wide range of follow-on work.”
The prize was awarded during this year’s 13th Annual Non-Volatile Memories Workshop in May.
This lecture from Onur Mutlu’s Computer Architecture class in Fall 2021 describes the ISCA 2009 paper and related work: Lecture 14: Emerging Memory Technologies (Fall 2021)
