Recently, research on two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors has begun to translate from the fundamental investigation into rudimentary functional circuits. In this work, we unveil the first functional MoS₂ artificial neural network (ANN) chip, including multiply-and-accumulate (MAC), memory and activation function circuits.

Such MoS₂ ANN chip is realized through fabricating 818 field-effect transistors (FETs) on a wafer-scale and high-homogeneity MoS₂ film, with a gate-last process to realize top gate structured FETs. A 62-level simulation program with integrated circuit emphasis (SPICE) model is utilized to design and optimize our analog ANN circuit.

To demonstrate a practical application, a tactile digit sensing recognition was demonstrated based on our ANN circuits. After training, the digit recognition rate exceeds 97%. Our work not only demonstrates the protentional of 2D semiconductors in wafer-scale integrated circuits, but also paves the way for its future application in AI computation.
