At last week’s Semi conference in Half Moon Bay in California, Guy Blalock Co-CEO of IM Flash Technologies (the Intel/Micron memory joint-venture, Blalock is the Micron half of the CEO duo), in what appears to be, frankly, a rather extraordinary talk, let out a few more…

Developing any new technology is expensive, revolutionary technologies even more so. It is expensive to introduce new methods, materials and production techniques etc.. It is not enough just to perfect all these but one has to show the markets a compelling reason (price, performance)…..
A couple of items have come my way recently. First Yole have just released a new technology and market analysis dedicated to the Emerging Non Volatile Memory. Second a paper entitled ‘Evolution of conductive filament and ….’ by a group from the…, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing has just appeared in Nature’s online scientific reports.
In a paper presented at the 2013 International Electron Devices Meeting in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, Adesto Technologies described the high-temperature data retention characteristics
First a caveat: I know something (from a previous life) about neuromorphic computing but what I do know is not much and no doubt outdated at least in part! The concept as I understand it is to mimic in silicon the methods of computation as performed in biological entities.
Adesto Technologies held a get acquainted workshop recently in San Jose and David Viera, MarCom Director, was kind enough to forward me the presentation focused on CBRAM. The program started with a company introduction followed by
Overviews and forecasts of the semiconductor markets can provide a reality check on the more ‘controversial’ statements made about product roadmaps. Usually these are based on an optimistic view of technology readiness rather than the cold reality of market opportunity. I know, because I have made them myself! Recently a couple of substantial reports have …
There has been lots of talk recently about IBM’s two terminal access device (AD) developed for PCRAM and ReRAM based on MIEC (Mixed Electronic Ionic Conduction). With a highly non-linear IV characteristic (far more non-linear than a pn diode for example), it has been attracting a lot of attention for BEOL memory. It appears to …
