Access/Select Devices at IEDM

It’s IEDM week and from my position on the other side of the Pond (i.e. I’m not at the conference), it’s clear that interest in ReRAM and CBRAM continues. However, this year there are more papers focussing on the access device suitable for use in next generation memory. This actually makes a lot of sense because:

Updated(!) News Update: Intermolecular, Nanoimprint and Adesto

Update At Intermolecular’s Q1 2014 conference call. more details emerged about IMI’s semiconductor related activity. Q1 was obviously tough as CDP’s with ATMI and Global Foundries as well as SanDisk/Toshiba ended and precipitated an 18% head count reduction. Ouch…. The Micron program, however continues and with Dave Lazovsky, IMI President and CEO stating “Micron’s first …

Patent Alert

Memory Cell with Threshold Switch (US8642985) by Frederick T. Chen. A high-density resistive memory traditionally coupled a transistor and a switching resistance in the same cell. While the functionality was easy to predict with this configuration, the density is often compromised by the need to make the transistor large enough
