The paper entitled A Novel Nondestructive Bit-Line Discharging Scheme for Deep Submicrometer STT-RAMs proposes a novel scheme to read out stored data on spintronic memories. This enables a fast and low-power read operation for spin-transfer torque random access memories (STT-RAMs). 

Behzad Zeinali is a 3rd-year PhD student. He is part of the Integrated Circuits and Electronics Lab (ICE-LAB) and his research focuses on the development of ultra-low power memory designs in nano-scale beyond CMOS technologies.

The IEEE International Conference on Computer Design encompasses a wide range of topics in the research, design, and implementation of computer systems and their components on both practical and theoretical levels.
