Takeuchi Lab conducts research on non-volatile memory and solid state drives (SSD) at the system, software, circuit, and device levels, as well as the cyber-physical space where IT interacts with the real-world.
Our laboratory focuses on development of cutting edge concepts in LSI and computer systems, such as real-time database for big data applications, 3D-LSI circuits, dependable wireless SSDs, ultra high-speed SSDs with storage class memory (SCM), as well as 3D-vertical nano memory devices such as PRAM, ReRAM and carbon nanotube.

High capacity flash memory, which was originally invented in Japan, has enabled new life-changing portable applications such as iPhone, iPad and digital still cameras. By further increasing the memory capacity another two orders of magnitudes, $10 tablets can be realized, which will enable children in world's poorest countries to access high-level education via wireless Internet. Since 1965, when Gordon Moore first advanced “Moore's law”, in which the number of transistors in a semiconductor chip doubles every 18 months, the capacity and performance of LSIs have been improving exponentially due to transistor scaling. However, it is expected that Moore’s law will face serious scaling limitations by the year 2020, when the transistor size becomes as small as 10nm, because of quantum mechanical effects and statistical fluctuations. Additionally, as big data traffic increases on the Internet, power consumption at the data centers of IT service providers such as Google and Facebook has drastically increased, causing serious environmental concern.
To overcome these problems, Takeuchi Lab is developing IT system solutions in the areas of, database software for big data applications, computer architecture, low-power high-capacity storage systems and semiconductor memory devices. By optimizing in the wide range of research areas of system, software, circuit and device at the same time, Takeuchi Lab is dedicated to realize high-speed and low power IT systems for the cloud.
Through national research projects funded by the Japanese government, Takeuchi Lab collaborates extensively with more than 20 industry partners, from established giants such as Toshiba, Mitsubishi Electric, Fujitsu and NEC, to promising startups such as PFI. Students can learn various aspects of technologies by working with industry experts. Our research results are widely broadcasted in general newspapers and magazines, so students can also understand how our technologies are directly contributing society.

    I worked on various positions like the start-up the factory and the marketing etc. in addition to the research and development of the flash memory in Toshiba before starting for my post at The University of Tokyo in 2007. I also got MBA in the U.S. and experienced the trial concerning the patent. As I have a wide variety of careers, I often received the question about a future work from the students. I’m afraid I do not know the trend in the future. However, it’s a fascinating time there are many chances if you can enjoy the age of rapid change. I think it’s an important role of the university to develop "the ability to enjoy the change". The root of the ability is the confidence by a successful experience. It’s important to overcome difficulties through the challenge to your research theme cooperating and discussing with the teachers and the students. Let's enjoy changing together!
